Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute Position on Ban Asbestos Legislation
Date:4/4/2008

of fabricating scientific research, stifling work safety regulation, and putting profits over people.

Research funding for treatment and a cure

The Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute supports asbestos ban legislation that includes funding for asbestos disease research. A ban must be accompanied by significant resources for public awareness, for better treatment and for finding a cure.

We support unified efforts to draft meaningful research legislation that will be merged with the committee print's current ban provisions. The committee print, with its ban provisions and its still undrafted research provision, offers an unparalleled chance for advocates and scientists to obtain, for the first time ever, enormous financial resources to better treat and ultimately cure asbestos diseases. The House subcommittee responsible for drafting these research provisions is already at work. The time is ripe for advocates to unite and work with the House to consolidate and strengthen these crucial research provisions.

The Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute supports provisions that:

1. Establish a competitive peer review grant program with targeted research priorities such as biological therapies, multi-modal therapies, prevention, biomarkers, and pain management;

2. Fund centers of research and treatment excellence from coast to coast;

3. Fund a database, registry and tissue bank;

4. Create an asbestos surveillance and public awareness program;

5. Appropriate $100 million over the first five years, divided between the National Institute of Health, the Center for Disease Control, and the Veterans Administration. We note that about 1/3 of all victims of mesothelioma in the U.S. were exposed while serving in the navy or naval shipyards.

The Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute believes that the opportunity for a united front is extraordinary. By working together with victims and their families,
