The Mesothelioma Research Foundation of America

Great News! Dr. Gill at USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center has begun Phase 1 clinical trials of a treatment that recently received FDA government approval called Veglin for victims of Asbestos caused Mesothelioma. Veglin is taken intravaneously and not chemotherapy. It has minimal side effects. 

Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lining of the lung caused by asbestos exposure and takes anywhere from 15-40 years to contract. Only about 4,000 people in the US contract this terrible cancer including those that working in various construction trades such as insulaters, pipefitters, plumbers, air conditioning and heating, boilermakers, bricklayers, plasters, tapers, labor sheet metal workers, ironworkers plus those who work around brake work, shipyards, home remodeling and movie sets. Wives and children have also been known to contract this cancer from asbestos exposure on clothing while doing laundry, which had been worn by the worker. 

To find out more about this treatment contact Jerry Neil Paul at (800) 281-9804.
