No Connection between SV40 and Mesothelioma

As a lawyer, I sure didn't go to medical school and I suspect many a lawyer is as science- and math-impaired as I am. So, being able to evaluate what doctors say is quite hard unless you have another doctor or scientist to call the other one a quack. However, this study suggests that any connection between the SV40 polio vaccine and mesothelioma was caused by contamination in the testing procedures. So, all those plaintiff's lawyers trying to bring in the big pharmaceuticals into asbestos litigation just got a lump of coal in their settlement stocking. Of course, it's just another study and I'm sure there are studies that suggest the opposite. So, let the Daubert battles continue!

  • What is mesothelioma?

    Mesothelioma is a rare disease caused as a result of malignant cancerous cells lining the patient's body cavities such as chest, abdominal region or the area surrounding the heart.Your legal rights:

    Corporations that manufacture asbestos products have known about the dangers of asbestos-related diseases for more than six decades. In an effort to increase profit, they kept this information quiet, putting workers and families at risk.

    Working with asbestos causes serious diseases. Unfortunately, many corporations thought they would be able to cut corners and make a large profit at the expense of endangering workers. Fortunately, there are laws that help to protect those individuals that have been harmed by exposure to asbestos-related products.

    Spread the information and help as many as possible.
    Thanks
