Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Possible asbestos discovery at Sunrise Mall

The Sunrise Mall in Massena is currently being studied after legislators determined that there may be asbestos in the area. The survey will be done in order for the building owners to determine if they should charge rent or try and get rid of the building.

The building is currently owned by St. Lawrence County, but they are hesitant to collect rent from tenants because it would make them liable for deficiencies within the building. The number one deficiency in question is whether or not there is asbestos in the basement.

There are allegedly asbestos in bags on the basement floor that was removed from pipes but never disposed of properly. Legislators are now going forward with a $3,600 survey that has been funded by the reserves that are set up in an environmental reserve.

New approaches sought to treat mesothelioma

Asbestos is a material that was used in many buildings prior to the 1970s when it was found that the material is a carcinogen if disturbed. The particles can be lodged into the lungs once inhaled and later form into lung cancer, such as mesothelioma.

Today, people may be exposed to asbestos when older buildings are remodeled or demolished and the material is not disposed of properly.

Recently, there has been an increased number of mesothelioma cases in Minnesota due to taconite mining in the region. Experts from the University of Minnesota and the Mayo Clinic are now trying to use a new approach to treating the  disease by incorporating a viral agent. This agent is the measles virus that will be used to carry a toxin that is safe for patients, but will harm the cancer cells.
