Early detection of cancer, including mesothelioma, is vital to prolonging the life expectancy of patients as treatment is more effective and available in the early stages. That is why the law firm of MRHFM supports new research from a group of UK scientists that published work in the "Journal of Alloys and Compounds" on the Science Direct website in January 2014. The research is about the development of a new bio-nanocomposite that could lead to earlier detection, and more successful treatment of breast cancer and other cancers.
Not to be confused with “nanomaterials” that are used in products such as invisible sunscreens and stain-resistant coatings for clothes, the types of nanomaterials or ‘smart’ materials produced using nanotechnology are being studied with a focus on their potential ability to kill cancer cells without harming surrounding healthy cells. Not only has this emerging science shown promising potential in the treatment of everything from brain cancer to mesothelioma, a number of medical studies are now underway to determine if it will play a significant role in quicker and more advanced detection of aggressive cancers such as mesothelioma.
“Research for not only treatment, but early detection of mesothelioma is crucial as these aggressive cancers spread so quickly that every day matters,” said Neil Maune, partner at MRHFM. “In order for treatment to be more effective, there must be the tools available to diagnosis as early as possible.”
In the case of mesothelioma cancer, patients do not show any signs or symptoms until years after asbestos exposure. This coupled with the fact that mesothelioma is not an easy cancer to diagnose, it is especially critical to support research in the detection of mesothelioma cancer.
