    Background: Malignant pleural mesothelioma is considered an almost incurable tumour with increasing incidence worldwide. It usually develops in the parietal pleura, from mesothelial lining or submesothelial cells, subsequently invading the visceral pleura. Chromosomal and genomic aberrations of...

    Mesothelioma is diagnosed in ∼2500 patients in the United States every year, most often arising in the pleural space, but also occurring as primary peritoneal mesothelioma. The vast majority of patients with mesothelioma die of their disease within 3 years. We developed a new mouse model of...

    Malignant mesothelioma is an extraordinarily challenging disease to treat; however, locoregional virotherapy may be applicable for this aggressive disease because of the accessibility by intrapleural and/or intratumoral virus delivery. We previously reported that an attenuated adenovirus OBP-301...

    Therapy with hyperthermal chemotherapy in pleural diffuse malignant mesothelioma had limited benefits for patients. Here we investigated the effect of heat stress on heat shock proteins (HSP), which rescue tumour cells from apoptosis. In human mesothelioma and mesothelial cells heat stress...

    Telomerase contains two essential components: an RNA molecule that templates telomeric repeat synthesis and a catalytic protein component. Human telomerase is processive, while the mouse enzyme has much lower processivity. We have identified nucleotide determinants in the telomerase RNA that are...
