Oncology | Addressing Unmet Needs in Mesothelioma
Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a relatively rare but serious malignancy that arises from the mesothelial surfaces of the pleural cavity. Most cases of MPM are associated with workplace exposure to high levels of asbestos, with the onset of cancer typically occurring 20 to 50 years after asbestos exposure.
