Study: Red wine could help with mesothelioma treatment

| May 11, 2012 | Mesothelioma/Asbestos-Related Illness |

Although mesothelioma has been causing pain, injury and death to people in Illinois and across the U.S. for many years, there is still relatively little that doctors and researchers know about the disease. As a result, mesothelioma remains resistant to standard treatment methods, and about 2,500 Americans die from the disease every year.

To lower the high fatality rate, researchers around the world are hard at work to find new methods of treatment for mesothelioma, which results from the exposure to asbestos fibers. In one recent study, scientists in Korea found that red wine may reduce tumors, and may therefore help with the treatment of malignant mesothelioma.

Red wine has long been known for its ability to fight heart disease and other forms of cancer. The key component of red wine that makes it such an effective method of treatment is resveratrol, a natural phenol that is derived from the skin of red grapes. It is resveratrol that helps fight other cancers, so researchers put it to the test against mesothelioma to determine whether it would have the same effect.

Although the research is still preliminary at this stage, it seems that resveratrol may, in fact, be effective against mesothelioma. Lab mice that were treated with resveratrol daily for four weeks saw a suppression in the growth of their mesothelioma tumors, and had an increase in cancer cell death.

Certainly, it will be some time before this research is translated, and patients will want to check with their doctors before incorporating red wine into their treatment programs. But any advances in mesothelioma are a positive step to the thousands of people in the U.S. and around the world that are currently battling the disease.
