January 16, 2008 - Denver, CO - LegalView informs its mesothelioma blog readers of a Canadian treatment study that is attempting to find early detection of asbestos exposure and mesothelioma in victims. According to information available at the mesothelioma blog, the study is being conducted by the University Health Network in Toronto. Volunteers who may have been exposed to asbestos are being asked to receive serial low-doses of computed tomography treatments in order to uncover how mesothelioma develops, according to the blog.

Mesothelioma cancer is caused by the exposure of asbestos fibers and dust to a victim. The victim breaths in the fibers, which eventually cause the formation of deadly cancers cells to develop on the inner lining of the lung. Mesothelioma is incurable because it is most often not caught until the cancer is so advanced, no mesothelioma treatments could affect it. Mesothelioma is usually misdiagnosed, which is why an individual who feels they may have been previously exposed to mesothelioma should contact a mesothelioma doctor as well as a law firm that has experience with mesothelioma cancer cases.

Other LegalView resources that are available include information on potential mesothelioma treatments as well as personal accounts of others undergoing mesothelioma. Find the latest news stories and jury verdicts relating to mesothelioma at the LegalView mesothelioma information portal.

Similar to mesothelioma is an illness that affects a small population of individuals throughout the country. Known as Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF), this condition can cause a victim's skin to swell and thicken and in some cases a break out of large red scabs form on the outer layer of the skin. The disease has been noted by victims to be extremely painful and because there is no known cure, it can cause an individual's life to suffer tremendously. NSF is associated with kidney disease patients who receive gadolinium dye during tests. To contact a NSF lawyer, visit LegalView's NSF information portal. In addition to information about mesothelioma and NSF, LegalView also offers users an array of resources on traumatic brain injury (TBI) accidents.
