In fact, it is a problem that we have created by modern living.The immune system, like most of the body, requires balance to function properly.

 Article Title :: Study Shows Improvement in Pleural Mesothelioma Patients Treated with Cisplatin Plus Raltitrexed
Pleural mesothelioma patients treated with both cisplatin and raltitrexed may survive longer than patients who receive cisplatin alone, according to a recent study conducted in Europe and Canada (J Clin Oncol. 2005 Oct 1; 23(28): 6881–9).

Cisplatin is a traditional chemotherapy drug.Two hundred fifty pleural mesothelioma patients took part in a clinical trial to determine the safety and effectiveness of raltitrexed. One hundred twenty–four patients took cisplatin and the rest took cisplatin plus raltitrexed. Most were men with an average age of 58 who ha  (read full article)
