“Low Exposures to Amphibole or Serpentine Asbestos in Germline Bap1-Mutant Mice Induce Mesothelioma Characterized by an Immunosuppressive Tumor Microenvironment"

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


In a study presented at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2024, researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center showed that in mice with a BAP1 germline mutation, even minimal exposure to chrysotile asbestos significantly increases susceptibility to the development of malignant mesothelioma. The study is being posted simultaneously online in Cancer Research Communications, a journal of the AACR.
