The CDC estimates more than 80% of all lung cancer cases are caused by tobacco use. Most cases are diagnosed when the cancer is in advanced stages and rate for survival is diminished. There are two main forms of lung cancer – small cell lung cancer and non-small cell lung cancer. Non-small cell lung cancer is the more common. The most common subtypes of non-small cell lung cancer are squamous cell carcinoma, large cell carcinoma, and adenocarcinoma. Here are some  ways […]

血液检查可以准确诊断间皮瘤

Historically there have been only two ways to diagnose mesothelioma: histology and cytology. Histology tests tissue and cytology tests fluid. Both tests are often performed to determine if a patient has mesothelioma. Often, the patient is in an advanced stage of mesothelioma at the time the tests are performed. However, there is some hope for earlier diagnosis. A new study has discovered that a blood test called Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) can discover mesothelioma earlier than traditional methods. FTIR is used to analyze the proteins left in the patient’s blood after blood cells and clotting proteins are removed. Researchers […]

强生公司:囚犯石棉实验曝光

In 1971, Johnson & Johnson (J&J) funded a study that injected 50 prisoners in Pennsylvania with asbestos. The purpose behind the study was to study the effect that talc and asbestos has on human skin and the differences between asbestos and talc. Talc is the main ingredient in their infamous baby powder and often contains asbestos naturally. J&J defends their study stating that this testing was acceptable for the time. A spokesperson for J&J stated that “At the time of these studies, nearly 50 years ago, testing of this nature among this cohort set was widely accepted, including by prominent […]
