Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma

More than 100 clinical trials are currently accepting participants diagnosed with Mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma is a cancer that usually starts in the types of cells in layers of tissue that cover each lung (the pleura). This is called pleural mesothelioma. More rarely it can start in the peritoneum. The peritoneum is the layer of tissue that covers the organs in your tummy (abdomen). This is called Peritoneal mesothelioma. Pleural mesothelioma is more common than peritoneal mesothelioma, and in general mesothelioma is more common in men than women. This is probably because it is often caused by exposure to asbestos at work.
