> “I am very hopeful about this discovery. Now that we know that the chronic inflammation caused by asbestos drives tumor growth, we can test different medicines that can suppress inflammation.

Dr. Carbone doesn’t yet know if aspirin can help decrease the incidence of mesothelioma among exposed individuals, or if more sophisticated therapies to specifically target HMGB1 are needed, but hopes that the upcoming clinical trial in Turkey will provide those answers.

“We will start to see if targeting HMGB1 will help us detect mesothelioma in the early stages and/or to prevent it in Turkey – if the results are promising we will bring the trials back to the USA,” continues Dr. Carbone. “We are eager to start, and are very grateful to the Meso Foundation and to the many patients that support it, because it is thanks to their support that we were able to get this project off the ground.”
