Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Researchers Find New Tool in Fighting Mesothelioma

Researchers in Turkey have found a new biological marker that may be able to aid in the identification of malignant mesothelioma.  The marker is called D2-40, and can help differentiate mesothelioma from pulmonary adenocarcinomas.

Doctors have long had trouble distinguishing malignant mesothelioma, benign mesothelioma, and pulmonary adenocarcinomas, which look very similar under the microscope.  The D2-40 marker may be able to provide an earlier positive identification, which could help doctors catch the disease quicker and provide better care sooner.
