Scientists are asking sufferers of mesothelioma and their families to come forward to assist with future research into the condition.

A survey has been launched to gather information to enable better understanding of the disease and possible treatments.

Professor Dame Sally C. Davies, chief medical officer and chief scientific adviser at the Department of Health says that:

“Mesothelioma research has been identified as an important area and everyone needs to hear what patients, carers, families and healthcare professionals believe are the most important unanswered questions around the diagnosis, treatment and care of mesothelioma”

The disease caused 2,291 deaths in Britain in 2011 according to the latest government figures but with no government funding for research. The British Lung Foundation invested £1million in 2011.

Mesothelioma fatalities are expected to continue to increase with a peak believed to be reached in 2016.
