[Comment] A new standard for malignant pleural mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related malignancy that begins in the pleural lining of the lung, pericardium, peritoneum, or testes. Early-stage pleural mesothelioma can be resected, but almost always recurs. Many patients are diagnosed at an advanced stage of disease, at which point surgery has no role. Since 2003, the standard treatment for unresectable disease has been combination chemotherapy with cisplatin and pemetrexed.1 Despite many attempts, until now, no regimen has further improved survival.
