Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Apartment building owner pleads guilty to asbestos charges

The owner of an apartment complex in Boston has plead guilty to improperly removing and disposing of asbestos. The man also plead guilty to evading unemployment insurance payments and failing to provide payment records.

The real estate development and property management companies along with their president were sentenced to probation as a result of the charges. The president claims that his crews did not mean to dispose of the materials.

The man gave the instructions to perform a demolition on the building and told them that the building did contain asbestos particles. The places that the waste products were disposed did not have the right permits for that to be done to. The government regulates how asbestos is handled and removed because inhaling it can cause serious health issues.

Man sentenced after posing as asbestos inspector

A 46-year-old man was sentenced after he was caught posing as an asbestos inspector in Denver. The man was ordered to 40 days in jail and ordered to pay $5,000 forging lab results and misleading state officials.

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.

Researchers Work to Develop Mesothelioma Drug

A joint team comrpised of researchers from Chinese and American companies is working to develop a new drug to aid in the battle against cancer.  The drug, currently called OSI-930, is an inhibitor which helps stop the spread of cancerous cells, which prevents the spread of the disease.

According to the researchers, the KDR/Kit inhibitor is showing good signs of stopping the spread of both small and non-small cell lung cancer.  The team is hopeful that the drug will also show positive signs of eliminating the spread of mesothelioma cancer, the deadly form of cancer linked to asbestos exposure.
