Newly-Published Review of Promising Mesothelioma Drug Finds Value Questions Remain, According to Surviving Mesothelioma

A new report suggests that there are still questions on the value of the immunotherapy drug tremelimumab for mesothelioma, despite encouraging clinical trial results. Surviving Mesothelioma has just posted an article on the new report. Click here to read it now.

Doctors at the University of Salford in the UK combed the medical literature for information on the monoclonal antibody tremelimumab and decided that it is still too early to tell how much the drug may help people with malignant pleural mesothelioma.

According to study author Alice Guazzelli, a PhD researcher at the University of Salford, “Even though clinical efficacy has been preliminarily demonstrated, the cost/benefit ratio of this drug for this neoplasm is yet to be ascertained.”

The paper, published in the new issue of Opinion on Biological Therapy, says the results of the early mesothelioma trials of tremelimumab are “now under critical consideration”.

“Until a cure for mesothelioma can be found, every new potential treatment has to be subjected to this kind of cost/benefit analysis,” observes Alex Strauss, Managing Editor of Surviving Mesothelioma. “Combatting mesothelioma while preserving quality of life is always a balancing act.”

To learn more about tremelimumab and the findings of the new report, see Fighting Mesothelioma with Immunotherapy Drug Tremelimumab, now available on the Surviving Mesothelioma website.
