WASHINGTON, May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading international experts on the asbestos-related cancer, mesothelioma, will join meso patients, caregivers, loved ones and advocates to share the latest in treatment, research and clinical trials at the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation's International Symposium on Malignant Mesothelioma, 2008, Thursday, June 26 - Saturday, June 28 at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, in Washington, D.C.

The Symposium, organized annually by the Meso Foundation, will highlight the latest advances in research and treatment for patients and caregivers, offer psychosocial support to them as well as those who have lost someone to the disease, and provide significant advocacy and volunteer opportunities for all who are intent on eradicating the vicious and terminal effects of this tragic cancer.

Day 1: Advocacy, Thursday, June 26 is a rallying cry to the House of Representatives to move quickly on legislation banning asbestos and providing research funding for meso and asbestos related diseases. This legislation must be conferenced with the companion bill in the Senate and signed into law by the President before year-end.

The Symposium's Co-Chairs, Dr. Nicholas J.
