PA contractor sued for breach of contract suspicion and asbestos violations

A lawsuit was recently filed against a demolition contractor in Pennsylvania after they were accused of breaking a contract on a project last year and for being negligent in removing asbestos minerals, a September 20 article of the Weirton Daily Times reported.

The plaintiff, identified as Ronald Cross, is claiming that Unis Demolition breached a 2015 project contract by demolishing and conducting asbestos abatement in the old AIR building in New Cumberland. According to the lawsuit filed in Hancock County Circuit Court, Unis did not fulfill the terms of the contract with Cross and extracted metals from the facility considered valuable. Unis caused financial loss equivalent to $21,400 as a result of their actions. The demolition began in January 2015 and was stopped in April of the same year after authorities detected asbestos inside the facility. Agents from the Department of Environmental Protection later discovered Unis violated asbestos removal regulations. The company’s owners, identified as Joan Unis and Ralph Unis, were also identified as defendants in the lawsuit.

Such negligence, unfortunately, can cause fatal illnesses linked to asbestos exposure.

Wake Forest Begins New Mesothelioma Study

The Wake Forest School of Medicine has teamed with the FirstHealth of the Carolinas Clinical Trials Department to research how mesothelioma and other asbestos-caused diseases develop and progress.  The research team is being led by Wake Forests’ Dr. Jill Ohar, who has spent 20 years investigating mesothelioma and its causes, and believes that because mesothelioma seems to run in families, there may very well be a genetic predisposition to the disease.

The main thrust of the research project will be investigating genetic markers.  Test subjects will have to fill out a survey and donate a one-ounce blood sample.

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.
