Mesothelioma Center Review – Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Mesothelioma Center Review – Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Memorial Sloan Kettering MesotheliomaMemorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of many forms of cancer, including mesothelioma. Patients who come to Memorial Sloan Kettering have the advantage of a wide network of experts in cancer research and treatment. This allows patients to receive a quick diagnosis and a tailored treatment plan that addresses their medical needs.

From diagnosis to enrollment in clinical trials, patients are offered comprehensive strategies to tackle their cancer. Mesothelioma can be difficult to recognize and diagnose. Clinicians at Memorial Sloan Kettering understand this and have developed the expertise to make clear and accurate diagnoses. Once a patient receives the correct diagnosis, clinicians collaborate with other specialists to formulate a targeted medical care plan. The team evaluates which treatment combination is the most suitable for that patient. Patients may be eligible for surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or some combination of those treatments.

The team determines if the patient’s symptoms are related to the diagnosis of mesothelioma and whether surgery should be the first treatment option. Clinicians may choose to administer a course of radiation therapy or to enroll the patient in a clinical trial, depending on the type of cancer that is presented and the patient’s prognosis. Memorial Sloan Kettering also provides patients with a long-term care plan and access to its survivorship program to ensure that the patient receives proper support and care after treatment at the center.

Aside from evaluating the individual’s personal medical history, symptoms and test results, clinicians at Memorial Sloan Kettering consult statistical data from a large sampling of patients who have been treated for mesothelioma. The Mesothelioma Pleural Database and Mesothelioma Peritoneal Database provide clinicians with important information about the diagnosis and treatment of other mesothelioma patients. This data can be beneficial in making treatment decisions for current patients.

As a treatment facility that invests significantly in cancer research, Memorial Sloan Kettering is at the forefront of breakthrough clinical trial programs. Memorial Sloan Kettering has clinical trials that are available to patients at most stages of the disease. The research team is now studying new treatments that include tumor vaccines, antibody therapies, T-cell treatments, molecular targeted medications and anti-cancer viruses.

Memorial Sloan Kettering is currently conducting a number of promising clinical trials for the treatment of mesothelioma. One clinical trial has been investigating the maximum dosage for an experimental immunotherapy drug regimen in patients with advanced solid tumors. The researchers hope that the combined therapy will be more efficient at identifying and attacking cancerous cells. In another clinical study, researchers have been testing how genetically modified T-cells can be administered to help patients with pleural cancers who have not responded to other conventional therapies. There are various other clinical trials that eligible patients can participate in at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
