Various method of Treatments for Peritoneal Mesothelioma
Monday, February 1, 2010
Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma is a rare cancer that develops in the abdominal cavity, specifically in the mesothelial cells that form the peritoneum.

Treatment Methods:
  • Multimodality Treatment
  • Palliative Treatment
Multimodality Treatment - It has shown encouraging results in some patients. With this method, two or more treatment options are completed at the same time, often involving the combination of surgery, chemotherapy and sometimes radiotherapy. However, this mesothelioma treatment method can only be used for a small percentage of patients that have a chance to beat the cancer.

Palliative Treatment - This usually involve some form of chemotherapy and are aimed to improve the overall quality of life for the patient. Chemotherapy drugs for peritoneal patients have included but are not limited to cisplatin, doxorubicin, carboplatin and pemetrexed (Alimta). In some cases, such medications have been noted to stall the progression of mesothelioma tumors.
