Llily's Drug Altima Approved by FDA to Treat Mesothelioma
By: Chris Placitella @ Jul 07, 2009
Alimta has been approved for use alone or in combination with other chemotherapies to treat two other advanced forms of lung cancer and mesothelioma, a cancer linked to asbestos exposure.
Because of the lack of research money to find cures and treatments for mesothelioma this approval is very encouraging.
Doctors have been struggling for years to get help for mesothelioma patients. Progress has been made but it has been very slow.
