Brigham and Women's Hospital Leads the Way in Mesothelioma Research and Treatment
International Mesothelioma Program Focused on Prolonging Survival, Improving Quality of Life for Disease Victims.
PR9.NET October 16, 2007 - Newton, MA. - While most of the medical world is still lagging behind when it comes to malignant mesothelioma—a deadly, asbestos-caused illness affecting as many as 3,000 Americans each year, one facility is facing the disease head-on. Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston is home to the International Mesothelioma Program (IMP), a large-scale initiative to advance the study of mesothelioma and broaden treatment options for victims.
"Brigham and Women's is breaking new ground in the realm of mesothelioma treatment," explains Attorney Jim Sokolove, principal and founder of the Law Offices of James Sokolove (www.jimsokolove.com). "The IMP is focused on understanding the root cause of this illness and more importantly, translating its findings into prolonging survival time and quality of life for patients. The remarkable efforts of Dr. David Sugarbaker, the program's founder, and his dedicated team are giving new hope to mesothelioma victims that a cure will soon be a reality."
Brigham and Women's Hospital is listed as a comprehensive cancer center on the Mesothelioma Resource Center (www.mesorc.com), a new website by the Law Offices of James Sokolove that was launched earlier in the fall. Designed for mesothelioma victims and their families, the MRC offers a wealth of information on current mesothelioma research, clinical trials, and treatment alternatives.
"Our goal is to empower mesothelioma victims to make informed decisions about their treatment and care," Sokolove says. "The MRC is kept updated with the most cutting-edge treatments and treatment facilities available today." He adds, "We're proud to feature Brigham and Women's Hospital on our website and wholly support their efforts to eradicate this devastating disease."
