Radiotherapy for the treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma

The Lancet. Oncology 2017 September [Link] Perrot M1, Wu L, Wu M, Cho BCJ Abstract Malignant pleural mesothelioma is an aggressive disease that continues to be associated with poor outcomes. Although, traditionally this disease is considered to be resistant to radiotherapy, more recent evidence suggests that radiotherapy can produce positive outcomes. Over the past 15 […]

Isolated thoracic perfusion with chemofiltration for progressive malignant pleural mesothelioma

OncoTargets and Therapy 2017 June [Link] Aigner KR, Selak E, Gailhofer S Abstract INTRODUCTION: Therapy of malignant pleural mesothelioma and especially the adequate role of surgery in this context remain the subject of controversial discussions. Radical surgery in particular, which is associated with substantial morbidity, failed to translate into a definite survival advantage. We report […]
