Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Diagnostic Tests Improved in Conjuction

Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston have found that using two genetic tests in conjunction with one another can greatly increase the sensitivity of mesothelioma diagnostic tests.

The two tests, karyotyping and fluorescence in situ hybridiztion (FISH), used along with cytology nearly doubled the sensitivity of the tests on their own. The researchers examined 48 patients thought to have mesothelioma and had a 60% success rate.
