There is currently no cure for mesothelioma, but thre are several different treatments ranging from surgery to radiation to chemotherapy.  Recently a new medication called Altima received FDA approval in the United States.  Click here for specific treatments.

Since mesothelioma is caused by preventable occupational exposure to asbestos, some patients file lawsuits to help with medical expenses and to ensure that others will not have to be exposed to asbestos as they were exposed to it.  Most of these lawsuits have been brought up agianst the building and manufacturing industries

As more attention is brought to this disease, more research is conducted on it with many clinical tests.  These clinical tests bring some small hope via their experimental ways to patients and their families suffering through this disease.  Visit here for more information on research articles.
