First Free-Standing International Mesothelioma Research Laboratory Opens in Los Angeles
Date:12/22/2011

c and translational science to facilitate the rapid development of the most promising therapies from the lab to the bedside for mesothelioma victims everywhere.

Important initial projects include:

  • The establishment of an international tissue bank.
  • The development of intraoperative cryotherapy; freezing suggests that cancer cells remaining after resections may be killed using cold gases to freeze the surface lining of the chest cavity.
  • Initiation of a stromal cell modification project; the interaction between stromal cells and tumor cells is known to play a major role in cancer growth and progression. 
  • The identification of a predictive model for drug prevention of malignant pleural mesothelioma.

Dr. Cameron commented, "Although I have operated on hundreds of patients suffering from malignant pleural mesothelioma and have reviewed all the recent and past mesothelioma research, I have never seen such enthusiasm and genuine hope that this laboratory embodies and holds for all mesothelioma victims." Dr. Cameron went on to say that, "I believe these exciting projects quickly will give us valuable information, some of which I anticipate will be covered in our 2nd International Symposium scheduled for May 12th, 2012 in Santa Monica, California."
