UK mesothelioma experts call for R&D centre and screening

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

UK mesothelioma and asbestos experts met today with parliamentarians to establish a plan of action for the creation of a national asbestos-related diseases research centre (NCARD). The centre would be modelled on the Australian NCARD (established two years ago, this month), with a view to co-ordinating R&D in the UK and Ireland – crucially, its funding – in the areas of diagnostics, theranostics, surgical techniques, radiation therapy and pharmacological therapies. The need for screening and early access to treatment is potentially huge, with a growing wealth of evidence that a wide range of UK public buildings are presenting a risk of exposure.
