Mesothelin promotes epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition and tumorigenicity of human lung cancer and mesothelioma cells

CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate an essential role of MSLN in controlling EMT and stem cell properties of human lung cancer and mesothelioma cells. Since EMT is an important process in tumor progression and metastasis, and MSLN is nonessential in most normal tissue, our findings on MSLN may provide new insights into the disease mechanisms and may aid in the development of novel targeted therapy for lung cancer and mesothelioma.

Clinical safety and activity of pembrolizumab in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma (KEYNOTE-028): preliminary results from a non-randomised, open-label, phase 1b trial

INTERPRETATION: Pembrolizumab appears to be well tolerated and might confer anti-tumour activity in patients with PD-L1-positive malignant pleural mesothelioma. Response durability and efficacy in this patient population warrants further investigation.

Physical function and health-related quality of life in patients undergoing surgical treatment for malignant pleural mesothelioma

Following surgery, exercise capacity and pulmonary function decreased more than limb muscle strength. Physicians, nurses, and rehabilitation staff should note these findings, which may provide insight into the development of customized rehabilitation strategies for patients with MPM who completed P/D.

Mesothelioid reaction following talc pleurodesis: a case report.

We conclude that Talc pleurodesis played a causative role in this patient developing an intense mesothelioid reaction. A mesothelioid reaction should be included in the differential diagnosis in patients with pleural thickening/pleural plaque formation who have previously been treated with talc pleurodesis.

Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and Pleural Mesothelioma in a Person Exposed to Asbestos

Epidemiological studies about the asbestos-lymphoma relationship gave conflicting results. The lymphoma-mesothelioma association is not exceptional, and suggests that asbestos plays a role in the etiology of both malignancies.

Asbestos fibres detected by scanning electron microscopy in the gallbladder of patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM)

By immunohistochemical analysis, connective tissue was recognized as the incorporation site. These findings confirm that asbestos fibres can reach the gallbladders of patients with MPM, for whom the development of respiratory diseases confirms asbestos exposure.

Recommendations for the Diagnosis and Management of Asbestos-Related Pleural and Pulmonary Disease

Recommendations have also been made for the diagnosis and follow-up of exposed patients. These recommendations were drawn up in accordance with the GRADE classification system.
