Learn More about this Cancer Center

The Moores Cancer Center, located on the UC San Diego Health Campus and also known as University of California San Diego Cancer Center, is a National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. It is the only cancer center to receive the designation in the San Diego area. The center employs 14 cancer teams that work together in specialty and subspecialty groups to treat patients with both common and rarer cancers, like mesothelioma. These multidisciplinary teams treat not only the patient’s cancer, but also provides holistic support for the patient, their family and caregivers. Support services offered include support groups, nutrition services and other emotional support services.

Mesothelioma patients receiving care at the Moores Cancer Center benefit from their Rare Tumor Clinic, which emphasizes genomically targeted treatments with immunotherapy. The center also offers a wide array of clinical trials, which enables patients to receive cutting edge care. The Moores Cancer Center frequently offers over 100 clinical trials at one time, allowing patients easier access to emerging therapies. One such cutting edge therapy offered at the center is heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy or HIPEC, a treatment that has proven to lead to improved survival rates for peritoneal mesothelioma. The surgeons at Moores are some of the most experienced at the cytoreductive/HIPEC surgery combination, performing around three procedures each week.

In addition to HIPEC, the physicians at the Moores Cancer Center are well versed in other procedures commonly used for mesothelioma treatment, including thoracoscopy and the standard treatment modalities: radiation, chemotherapy and general surgery.
