Canadian Statistics May Help Prioritize Mesothelioma Research, According to Surviving Mesothelioma
Date:7/21/2014

Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) July 21, 2014

Researchers at the University of Montreal have estimated the number of occupational cancer cases and deaths in Quebec in hopes of helping scientists set their research priorities. Click here to read Surviving Mesothelioma’s full article on the new research.

New data from the Canada School of Public Health at the University of Montreal finds that mesothelioma is the top cause of work-related cancer deaths in Quebec, a province with a long history of asbestos mining and exportation.

“Compensation statistics reported an annual average of 94 incident cancers and 40 cancer deaths, 60-64% of which being mesotheliomas, followed by respiratory cancers (30-37%),” writes lead investigator France Labreche, PhD, a professor of Environmental and Occupational Health at the University of Montreal.

The data published in Occupational and Environmental Medicine showed that about 53% of mesothelioma patients in Quebec received compensation.

“Because mesothelioma is so rare in the general public, it tends to be very low on the priority list for research funding,” says Surviving Mesothelioma Managing Editor Alex Strauss. “This data is a reminder that, while mesothelioma is rare, it is also extremely deadly making the search for a cure that much more urgent.”
