International Mesothelioma Experts Present Promising New Research Findings at the 3rd Annual International Symposium on Lung-Sparing Therapies for Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma
Date:5/24/2013

LOS ANGELES, May 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- An international roster of experts on malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) gathered on Saturday, May 18, in Santa Monica, Calif., to discuss their latest research findings on new lung-sparing therapies for MPM, a rare form of cancer that results from exposure to asbestos and commonly affects the pleura, the lining of the chest.

Hosted by UCLA and the Pacific Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, the 3rd Annual International Symposium on Lung-Sparing Therapies for Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma focused on research aimed at preserving vital lung function in MPM patients. Mesothelioma experts now agree that extrapleural pneumonectomy, which involves removal of the lung and surrounding diseased tissues, does not have a place in treatment of patients with this asbestos-related problem. Presentations included the latest surgical techniques for removal of cancerous tumors and a variety of adjunctive techniques.

Symposium leader, Robert B. Cameron , MD, FACS, Director of the UCLA Mesothelioma Comprehensive Research Program and Chief of Thoracic Surgery at the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center, presented treatment strategies and results of multimodality treatment of patients with sarcomatoid-type MPM, the fastest spreading and most difficult to treat form of the disease. He also discussed current thermal research at UCLA and the effectiveness of cryoablation in killing MPM cancer cells.

The symposium's distinguished faculty included Joseph S. Friedberg , MD, of the University of Pennsylvania, who presented promising new photodynamic therapy results using light to directly kill cancer cells; Olga Olevsky , MD, of UCLA Medical Center, who discussed results of a variety of novel treatment strategies; Italian Radiologist Marco Trovo, MD, who presented the early results of
