Malignant Mesothelioma – A New Genetic Revelation,

number of deaths per year being between 1,950 and 2,450. After that peak, the mortality rate is expected to fall rapidly to a background level, depending on what residual exposure to asbestos.

Professor Peto who conducted this study says: "The peak in mesothelioma deaths will be earlier and at a lower number than formerly thought. The abrupt reduction in asbestos exposure in 1980 has altered the lifelong patterns of exposure that people have experienced. This makes the previous age-related models inaccurate. Our new model for predicting mesothelioma mortality rates is more complex and takes account of the varying exposure to asbestos of different age groups at different times of their lives." In brief, Mesothelioma is a lethal cancer that is caused by long-term or high level exposure to asbestos dust and fibers. There is currently no cure for this cancer. It can affect the heart, lungs, or abdominal regions. The lifespan of sufferers can be reduced to a matter of months from the onset of the symptoms, but the symptoms can take many decades to manifest from the exposure to asbestos. The understanding of the disease process is important for both prevention and sure of the disease.

Further Information from Medindia on Mesethelioma

In men who die of lung cancer (squamous and undifferentiated), all of whom were smokers, the remainder of the epithelial lining shows changes that may be considered as preliminary stages to the development of lung cancer, including early invasion. There are few such changes in nonsmokers, but they increase rapidly with the amount of cigarette smoking.
