Central Florida Mesothelioma Research and Treatment Center

In Central Florida, the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center is highly regarded for providing outstanding multidisciplinary work in fighting mesothelioma and other cancer. Located in Tampa, Moffitt has a specialized group of doctors within the Thoracic Oncology Department and is known as one of the top cancer care facilities in the country. Patients now diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer in Crystal River, Ocala, Hernando, Spring Hill, Leesburg and across Central Florida as a result of exposure to asbestos no longer have to travel out of state for the best treatment.

Researchers target biomarkers for mesiothelioma treatment

Last week researchers reported that another important biomarker has been identified for treating mesothelioma and lung cancer patients.Researchers have discovered that the fibroblast growth-inducible 14 (FN14) gene plays a role in tumor growth and metastasis.  When the FN14 gene was suppressed the spread of the metastasis was slowed.
