Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Oxford University Unveils New Mesothelioma Test

Oxford University in England has developed a new mesothelioma test which, unlike traditional tests which look for cancer cells, looks for high levels of certain types of protein in the mesothelium, the membrane in which mesothelioma first develops.  Because it tests for protein levels rather than cancer cells, the test can actually predict a patient’s likelihood of developing mesothelioma long before it appears, making treatment better and more proactive.

Additionally, the test is less invasive than current tests, and more relaible.  The researchers believe it is the future for mesothelioma testing.
