Australian Study Shows Treatment Advances for Peritoneal Mesothelioma
Patients with peritoneal mesothelioma undergoing a second cytoreductive surgery had a median survival of 92 months, according to a recent study at St. George Hospital and the University of South Wales in Sydney, Australia. That same group of patients also had a five-year survival rate of 71.8%, further illustrating the progress being made in treating the peritoneal subtype of this rare and aggressive cancer. The Journal of Surgical Oncology published the study in July 2019. The single-center study detailed the survival benefits of cytoreduction and perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy in colorectal, ovarian, appendic...

Genetic testing all women for breast cancer might not be worth the cost
Women who are carriers of mutated BRCA genes are known to have a significantly higher risk for developing breast and ovarian cancers than those who don’t. But a new study by UCLA faculty questions the value of screening for the genetic mutations in the general population — including those who do not have cancer or have no family history of the disease — because of the high cost. The UCLA researchers found that compared with universal screening, other diagnostic tools remain more efficient and might be more cost-effective.  The paper was authored by Dr. Patricia Ganz, director of the division of cance...

Acetic Acid in Vinegar Kills Mesothelioma Cells
For more than 2,000 years, people have used vinegar to preserve and flavor food, disinfect wounds and treat a wide range of ailments, from stomach aches to diabetes. Yet modern scientists remain skeptical of these storied medicinal benefits, often dismissing vinegar-based treatments as folk remedies with questionable proof behind them. However, a recent study published in the December 2014 issue of Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology suggests this perception soon may change — especially when it comes to mesothelioma treatment.

Data gathered by an international group of peritoneal mesothelioma experts is leading to changes in the way patients with this rare asbestos-related disease are diagnosed and treated.

Its low incidence also has limited the amount of data necessary to ensure a staging system is useful. Dr. W.
