2024 Peritoneal Mesothelioma Treatment Updates

Treatment & Doctors

On Tuesday, July 16, at 6 p.m. ET, The Mesothelioma Center at Asbestos.com will host a webinar open to all peritoneal mesothelioma patients, their families and caregivers. Our webinar will focus on the latest treatment advances and clinical trials for peritoneal mesothelioma in 2024.

Only 1 out of 5 mesothelioma cases are the peritoneal type, which develops in the abdomen. Peritoneal mesothelioma affects the tissue lining, surrounding and connecting sensitive organs, such as the liver and kidneys, called the peritoneum.

Dr. Edward Levine, a nationally recognized HIPEC specialist, will discuss the newest developments in treating peritoneal cancer. Tamron Little, a 17-year mesothelioma survivor, will share her personal journey from diagnosis to today.

After the presentation, Dr. Levine and Tamron will answer your questions in a live Q&A. If you’re unable to attend our live webinar, registering will guarantee you receive a recording after the event.

Discover 2024 Peritoneal Mesothelioma Treatment Standards

The current standard for peritoneal mesothelioma surgery is hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy or HIPEC. Not everyone is eligible for this aggressive surgery, however. Your individual eligibility depends on factors such as coexisting conditions and your overall health. 

In this webinar, Dr. Levine will discuss the latest updates in peritoneal mesothelioma care, from surgical standards to chemotherapy drugs. He’ll also share current and upcoming clinical research trials pushing the boundaries of contemporary treatment and improving patient outcomes.

Throughout the presentation, Tamron Little will share her experiences with HIPEC and other peritoneal mesothelioma treatments. She’ll answer your questions, discuss her feelings about treatment developments and share tips and insights from her own personal experiences with you.

Who Should Attend?

You should attend if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma. We encourage anyone looking for information on peritoneal mesothelioma treatment or information about currently enrolling clinical trials across the United States to attend. 

Consider attending if you’re:

This webinar will be of value to you if you have questions about new treatment options in 2024, peritoneal mesothelioma symptoms, clinical trials or finding the right doctor and treatment center for you. Dr. Levine and Tamron look forward to providing an overview of 2024 treatment updates and addressing any concerns you may have.
