The Law Office of Roger G. Worthington, P.C. - Longtime Supporter of the Pacific Meso Center - Donates $100,000 for Mesothelioma Research
Date:7/31/2012

LOS ANGELES, July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pacific Meso Center (PMC) gratefully acknowledges the generous $100,000 donation from longtime supporter Roger G. Worthington. Clare Cameron, Executive Director of PMC, stated that the money will be used for PMC's mesothelioma research program in cryotherapy.

Dr. Robert B. Cameron, PMC Scientific Advisor, who is also Director of the UCLA Comprehensive Mesothelioma Program, Chief of Thoracic Surgery at the West Los Angeles VA Medical, and a recognized international expert in mesothelioma, said, "Mr. Worthington's continued amazing generosity will help PMC propel its cryotherapy project to the next level and advance its mission of bringing relief to suffering mesothelioma patients."

Dr. Cameron added, "His donation will help expand our initial success with percutaneous cryoablation of mesothelioma tumors to an intra-operative treatment that may help patients avoid other difficult therapies after surgery, such as radiation."

PMC's support of Dr. Cameron's thermal therapy research, which has been carried out in the David "Punch" Worthington Research Laboratory of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and which has been reported at two recent national scientific meetings, has already led to a better understanding of the potential role of cryotherapy over the limited benefits of hyperthermia.

This research studies the basic response of laboratory cultured mesothelioma cells to changes in temperature and has indicated that mesothelioma cancer cells are much more susceptible to freezing than heat. This observation has led to investigation into the use of various techniques to cool and even freeze the surfaces of the chest cavity in order to increase the effectiveness of mesothelioma surgeries.

Cancer cells always remain on the surfaces following surgery, and these cells lead to tumor recurrence in the vast majority of patients. Cryotherapy could change all that, according to D
