A study of 300 individuals suffering from asbestos mesothe­lioma have shown promise using the drug, nivolumab which has already been effective for treating melanoma and kidney disease. By blocking a protein called PD-1 on the surface of T-cells, immune system cells can be activated to hunt down and kill cancer cells. Although it is way too early to know if this drug is a “cure all,” the drug does show some promise.

Mesothelioma Asbestos Attorney Jacksonville FLThe Asbestos Team of Anita Pryor and Alan Pickert at Terrell Hogan in Jacksonville, Florida is dedicated exclu­sively to assisting asbestos victims and their families throughout the state of Florida and beyond. On-the-job asbestos exposure – years and years ago – continues to cause serious diseases.  Work in paper mills, other indus­trial plants, ships, shipyards, Navy and other military facil­ities often meant exposure to asbestos-containing insulation on steam pipes and boilers and other equipment. Over the decades, many in North Florida have developed asbestos-caused diseases such as asbestosis, a scarring of the lungs, lung cancer, and malignant mesothe­lioma, a fatal cancer of the lining of the lungs. If you or your loved ones were exposed to asbestos and conse­quently developed mesothe­lioma or lung cancer from that exposure, you deserve to have compas­sionate, capable, and experi­enced legal repre­sen­tation. We are here to help.
