Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) July 28, 2014

Scientists in Japan have completed initial tests of what they say is an improved blood test for the asbestos cancer mesothelioma. Surviving Mesothelioma has just posted an article on the new research. Click here to read it now.

Researchers in the Department of Respiratory Medicine at Tokyo’s Juntendo University Graduate School of Medicine say a new test for the mesothelioma biomarker called N-ER/mesothelin is a step above the old test.

“Particularly for the epithelioid type [of mesothelioma], the area under the curve (AUC) and the diagnostic accuracy of N-ERC/mesothelin were excellent,” reports study author Tadashi Sato.

The team tested the new 7-20 ELISA assay on suspected mesothelioma patients between 2005 and 2013. Their promising results were published in a recent issue of Cancer Medicine.

“If the improved accuracy of this test is confirmed, it could be an important advance, not only for identifying future cases of mesothelioma, but also for gauging the effectiveness of treatment,” says Alex Strauss, Managing Editor of Surviving Mesothelioma.
