抜粋

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an aggressive and fatal tumor of the pleura and its incidence has been increasing as a result of the widespread use of asbestos worldwide. Numerous chemotherapeutic agents have been tested in many clinical trials, but the response rate does not exceed 20% for most of the investigated regimens. Here we report a case of MPM in which the chemotherapy based on the chemosensitivity test was very effective on palliation with stable disease for a long time.
