There is a new treatment for people with cancer disease called sirolimus treatment, and it is said that this treatment is good enough to treat a mesothelioma patients and other cancers too. This is indeed a good news and a breakthrough for scientific medication. What exactly is Sirolimus? Sirolimus  is an immunosuppressant drug which is typically used to prevent rejection of organ transplantations especially in kidney transplants. Sirolimus has an anti-proliferative effect which makes it an effective treatment option for mesothelioma.

 The benefits of sirolimus could make it easier to treat certain cancers. Sirolimus acts as an inhibitor in the development of certain proteins that affects the cell survival and cell growth among others. The researchers also stated that upon observation of combination of sirolimus and cisplatin “Sirolimus appears to enhance the cytotoxicity of cisplatin in malignant pleural mesothelioma cell lines through the mammalian target rapamycin pathway. These results provide a basis for the clinical evaluation of combined sirolimus and cisplatin chemotherapy in malignant pleural mesothelioma.”
