Chemoembolization

Asbestos treatments

Chemoembolization is currently available in the UK for the treatment of liver cancer. A professor in Germany is conducting a 5 year clinical trial to use chemoembolization to treat lung cancer, including mesothelioma.

Chemoembolization involves cytotoxic drugs being directed to the mesothelioma and retained in the affected area for several weeks. The drugs used are up to 20 times more concentrated than those used in chemotherapy.

Side effects of chemoembolization have been found to be quite low with patients feeling fatigued and occasionally nauseous.

So far, approximately 20 mesothelioma patients have been included in the trial and the results have shown that the symptoms and status of patients has improved following treatment.
