Good news regarding Mesothelioma treatment.

Got some good news for Mesothelioma sufferers.

I quote, "Treatment with both cisplatin and raltitrexed results in better survival among patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma than treatment with cisplatin alone."

I'm not sure exactly what cisplatin and raltitrexed are, but it's good news nonetheless. Sorry about the lack of information today, was extremely busy.

Cisplatin or cis-diaminedichloroplatinum(II) (CDDP) is a platinum-based chemotherapy drug used to treat various types of cancers, including sarcomas, some carcinomas (e.g. small cell lung cancer and ovarian cancer), lymphomas and germ cell tumors. It was the first member of its class, which now also includes carboplatin and oxaliplatin.

Raltitrexed is an investigational chemotherapy drug that inhibits tumor cells from multiplying by interfering with cells' ability to make DNA. Also called ICI DI 694 and Tomudex. It belongs to the family of drugs called thymidylate synthase inhibitors.
