Emerging Research for Mesothelioma Treatments and Cure

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it can be frustrating to know that there isn’t yet a cure or effective treatment regimen to eradicate the cancer. While there are treatments that can help alleviate mesothelioma symptoms and lengthen a patient’s life expectancy, at this point there is no cure for the rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure.
It can take an average of 12 to 15 years until a new treatment for mesothelioma is approved and available. The time frame is lengthy, but it is meant to ensure that the medication is safe and that enough time was taken within each stage of the process of drug testing and approval.
It can take one to three years for researchers to conduct basic research, before any clinical trials are conducted. Then the second stage, or years four to six, are spent doing pre-clinical testing, which can include testing on animals and in artificially-created environments. Years seven through 10 are when the three phases of clinical trials are conducted, involving mesothelioma patients who volunteer for the studies. Around year 10, the new drug, if it has been proven to be effective during the clinical trials, will go through the process of becoming registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Around year 11 the drug will be introduced for public use, and from then until year 15 the drug will be monitored and a fourth clinical trial is often conducted.

For years, mesothelioma was a relatively unknown form of cancer because it is so rare. Advocacy groups campaigned to secure federal funding to conduct studies on the disease, which was successful in 2008 when the U.S. Department of Defense allocated $50 million toward the research of mesothelioma, with funds released in increments of up to $2.5 million. This has allowed grants to be awarded to several research organizations and cancer treatment centers to focus their efforts on new treatments for mesothelioma.
There are now two FDA-approved chemotherapy medications frequently used to treat mesothelioma. Alimta and Cisplatin are often used in combination, and are considered the most effective chemotherapy treatment combinations available now for mesothelioma.
Onconase, a stem cell medication has reached the final stages of its clinical trials, while Veglin, another cancer drug, is now being tested in clinical trials to see if it is successful for mesothelioma patients. Other procedures being explored as mesothelioma treatments include gene and immunotherapy, and the identification of biomarkers within a person’s body to attempt to diagnose the disease much earlier in patients.
