A biological sciences professor at Idaho State University will be studying the effects of asbestos at the cellular level. The study has been funded with a grant of $191,962 from the U.S. National Institutes of Health. The professor stated that the study may lead to improved treatment of autoimmune diseases in people who have been exposed to asbestos. The research is expected to be completed in two years.
The asbestos cancer mesothelioma is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos. Mesothelioma symptoms can appear decades after exposure to asbestos. The symptoms can vary depending on whether a person has peritoneal mesothelioma or pleural mesothelioma (lung mesothelioma). Peritoneal mesothelioma affects the lining of the abdominal cavity while pleural mesothelioma affects the chest cavity. Malignant mesothelioma has no cure but there are treatment options that can be efective. Generally, mesothelioma treatment options are most effective during the early stages of mesothelioma. One mesothelioma treatment technique is photodynamic therapy (PDT).
