Blood test may detect asbestos-related lung cancer

Doctors now can detect mesothelioma early or earlier than before by looking for the protein osteopontin in the blood. Hopefully, that makes earlier treatment possible but the study was still unsure if that would help. From a defense lawyer's perspective, it means the possibility of more living personal injury cases and fewer wrongful death cases which might mean more work on our part but, hopefully, we'll be deposing fewer folks on death's door.
