Mesothelioma Cancer Centers
Located at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center (Case CCC) supports all cancer-related research efforts at the university as well as at Case Medical Center and the Cleveland Clinic. It serves the needs of the largely rural and manufacturing population of northern Ohio, numbering about 3.8 million people.
Case CCC strives to: improve methods of preventing, diagnosing, and treating all types of cancer, including mesothelioma; support clinical research of prevention, diagnostic, and treatment methods; quickly translate research discoveries into clinical applications to provide patients with the latest treatment options; and reduce cancer morbidity in the northern Ohio area. Furthermore, Case CCC boasts several clinical trials teams that develop and prioritize potential participation in ongoing clinical trials so that patients can take advantage of the opportunity to test new and novel treatments and therapies for their particular type of cancer, like asbestos cancer.
The program at Case Comprehensive Cancer Center is divided into nine interdisciplinary programs and one program initiative. These include cancer genetics, cell death regulation, cancer cell signaling, genitourinary cancer, stem cells and hematologic malignancies, developmental therapeutics, cancer imaging, aging-cancer research, and cancer prevention, control, and population research,
