Mesothelioma: Causes, Prevention, Screening and Early Detection

The International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) sponsored a live 60-minute CME webinar on November 15, 2016  featuring Dr. Michele Carbone, MD, PhD and Dr. Harvey I. Pass, MD .  The webinar describes clinical research efforts focusing on how mesothelioma prevention and intervention at earlier stages of the disease process may improve the management of mesothelioma.

Investigating palygorskite’s role in the development of mesothelioma in southern Nevada

Insights into fiber-induced carcinogenicity

Similar to asbestos fibers, nonregulated mineral fibers can cause malignant mesothelioma (MM). Recently, increased proportions of women and young individuals with MM were identified in southern Nevada.

Environmental risk of mesothelioma in the United States

Environmental risk of mesothelioma in the United States

An emerging concern—epidemiological issues

Despite predictions of decline in mesothelioma following the ban of asbestos in most industrial countries, the incidence is still increasing globally, particularly in women.

Consensus Report of the 2015 Weinman International Conference on Mesothelioma

Consensus Report of the 2015 Weinman International Conference on Mesothelioma

Special Article in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology, August 2016

On November 9 and 10, 2015, the International Conference on Mesothelioma in Populations Exposed to Naturally Occurring Asbestiform Fibers was held at the University of Hawaii Cancer Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. The meeting was cosponsored by the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, and the agenda was designed with significant input from staff at the U.S. National Cancer Institute and National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

A multidisciplinary group of participants presented updates reflecting a range of disciplinary perspectives, including mineralogy, geology, epidemiology, toxicology, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, public health, and clinical oncology. The group identified knowledge gaps that are barriers to preventing and treating malignant mesothelioma (MM) and the required next steps to address barriers.

This manuscript reports the group’s efforts and focus on strategies to limit risk to the population and reduce the incidence of MM. Four main topics were explored:

  1. Genetic risk
  2. Environmental exposure
  3. Biomarkers
  4. Clinical interventions
