Mesothelioma in southern Nevada likely result of asbestos in environment

Malignant mesothelioma has been found at higher than expected levels in women and in individuals younger than 55 years old in the southern Nevada counties of Clark and Nye, likewise in the same region carcinogenic mineral fibers including actinolite asbestos, erionite, winchite, magnesioriebeckite and richterite were discovered. These data, published in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology, the official journal of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer, suggest that these elevated numbers of malignant mesothelioma cases are linked to environmental exposure of carcinogenic mineral fibers.

Malignant mesothelioma is a fatal cancer associated with asbestos exposure that develops on the outer linings of the lungs. The 3-year survival rate is only 8% and there are limited therapeutic options. The incidence of malignant mesothelioma is higher in locations with known industrial and occupational exposure and for similar reasons the incidence is higher in men, with a male to female ratio of 4:1 to 8:1. The latency period for is 30-50 years so those diagnosed from occupational exposure are usually in their seventies whereas those diagnosed younger than 55 are rarely associated with occupational exposure. Asbestos is a commercial and regulatory term applied to six mineral fibers historically mined for industrial use. Naturally occurring asbestos is a term used to describe fibrous minerals that were not used commercially and therefore were not called asbestos and their use was and still is not regulated. Like asbestos, these naturally occurring fibers are natural components of rocks and soils and a potential source of exposure especially if these fibers become airborne through natural erosion or human activities producing dust.

Researchers from Hawaii, Nevada, and Pennsylvania examined malignant mesothelioma mortality data from the Centers for Disease Control by gender, age group, state, and counties for the period 1999-2010. The two southern Nevada counties of Clark and Nye were grouped together and the proportion of women and those younger than 55 years old in these two southern counties were compared to those in all other Nevada counties grouped together as well as the rest of the United States.

The male to female ratio of malignant mesothelioma in all Nevada counties excluding Clarke and Nye was 6.33:1, but in Clarke and Nye counties it was statistically lower at 2.69:1 (p=0.0468), which could not be explained by population demographics, as these were the same. The percentage of individuals younger than 55 was significantly higher in the southern Nevada counties compared to the remainder of the US counties (11.28% vs 6.21%, p=0.0249). Tremolite and actinolite, both members of the asbestos family, as well as erionite, winchite, richterite, and magnesioriebeckite are present in southern Nevada and all have been linked to cancer in humans.

The authors acknowledge that women and children can be exposed to fibrous minerals as a result of their husband’s or father’s occupational exposure when bringing these fibers home on their clothes. However, the authors conclude “in southern Nevada there are no major asbestos industries, thus this seems an unlikely hypothesis. Instead, the presence of asbestos and other fibers in the environment of Clark and Nye Counties, where a lower M:F sex ratio and an increased proportion of malignant mesothelioma are seen in young individuals, suggests that some of these malignant mesotheliomas are caused by environmental exposure which can happen when human activities and natural processes such as wind or water release fibers in the air.”

Michele Carbone, senior author on the study, states “further research is needed, including epidemiological, geological, mineralogical and health-based personal exposure studies in order to characterize the residential and occupational history of the malignant mesothelioma cases we studied, to highlight the highest risk areas within Clark and Nye counties, to identify the type of fibrous minerals and their precise distribution throughout Nevada, and to identify the activities responsible for the release of fibers in the air, which may be the cause of some of the malignant mesothelioma in this region.”

Meeting to discuss proposed development on Ambler asbestos site

The BoRit Asbestos Superfund Site Community Advisory Group announced that it is scheduled to meet with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection on Wednesday to discuss a proposed residential construction on the Bast parcel in Ambler.

The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the Upper Dublin Township Building, 801 Loch Alsh Ave., Fort Washington.

The Community Advisory Group works with the EPA to oversee the remediation of asbestos sites in the area. The CAG said the Bast parcel, located near the Ambler train station, has been approved for apartment construction by the DEP but still consists of 90 percent asbestos.

Scheduled to address the meeting is the developer of the project, John Zaharzak. He is expected to explain how he will clean and construct on the parcel, and the DEP is expected to review its guidelines for development of the parcel. – Inquirer staff

Meeting to discuss proposed development on Ambler asbestos site

New article describes current state of asbestos use worldwide

What we need to learn from history, according to a new study in the Annals of Global Health

Challenges to global health can evolve from policies and decisions that take years or decades to unfold. An article in the current issue of the Annals of Global Health describes the current state of asbestos use worldwide, a story that began over 100 years ago, and the real and contrived controversies regarding asbestos.

At the peak of asbestos use in 1972 in the United States, more than 775,000 tons of asbestos were used, much of it by the construction trades and shipbuilding industry, in addition to the manufacturing of many consumer products. As the health risks associated with asbestos have become evident, more than 50 countries have banned asbestos, although India and the United States have not.

As investigators Arthur L. Frank, MD, PhD, Drexel University School of Public Health, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, and T.K. Joshi, MBBS, MS (Surgery), Centre for Occupational and Environmental Health, Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi, India, relate, “Unfortunately, as the developed world was banning or constricting the use of asbestos, the developing world was greatly increasing its use of this toxic material. Major producers such as Russia, Kazakhstan, China, and Brazil continue to produce and export asbestos to countries around the world, especially to low- and middle-income countries that too often have weak or nonexistent occupational and environmental regulations.” They note that India produces little asbestos, but has become a major importer with exponential growth in manufacture of asbestos cement and pipes.

Asbestos minerals are divided into two groups, amphibole and serpentine, based on their chemistry and fiber morphology. The amphibole group includes crocidolite, amosite, tremolite, actinolite, and anthophyllite asbestos. The serpentine group is comprised solely of chrysotile asbestos, and it accounts for some 90% to 95% of all the asbestos used worldwide.

Two groups of diseases are associated with exposures to asbestos: nonmalignant diseases, which can be fatal, and cancer. The nonmalignant diseases associated with exposure to asbestos include asbestos warts, benign asbestotic pleural effusion, and asbestosis.

The now disproven belief that chrysotile asbestos is safe and the actions of the governments of Canada and India to support asbestos production in the face of strong epidemiological data show that this is not a strictly science-driven issue. Canada has recently had a turnabout and will likely exit the asbestos business, but India remains recalcitrant.

Dr. Frank and Dr. Joshi report on how the global spread of asbestos is changing but that there are still examples of flawed science being used to justify continued use. They suggest that, because of economic issues for asbestos producers, there “are far more insidious actions that follow a pattern first established by the tobacco industry in hiring public relations firms to obfuscate the scientific issues so that tobacco could still be sold…Similarly, the asbestos industry adopted the view that a public relations campaign was needed to quash the rising concerns about its health hazards.”

The authors caution that eventually the truths regarding asbestos exposure and its true hazards will be recognized and acted upon, but only after economic forces are overcome.

Former smoker’s award won’t be reduced in Md. asbestos case

In regards to the “use plaintiffs” argument, the appeals addressed whether they were precluded from recovering damages by not formally joining in the proceedings.

The Wallace & Gale Asbestos Settlement Trust was the only remaining defendant at the time of trial in February 2011. Each plaintiff alleged asbestos exposure from asbestos-containing insulation applied to pipes.

Wallace & Gale was a Baltimore-based insulation and roofing contractor that filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1985, thus setting up the trust to handle its asbestos liability.

After a 15-day trial, the jury awarded each of the plaintiffs separate awards against Wallace & Gale.

Then in May 2011, the trial court entered orders in the four cases reducing the jury verdicts after application of the cap on non-economic damages, bankruptcy settlement payments and joint tortfeasor credit for cross claims against another defendant.

Decedent Levester James worked as a laborer at the Baltimore-based copper refinery American Smelting and Refining Company’s tank room from 1968 to 1972. He died from lung cancer in July 2004.

The jury awarded him and his family $2,035,684.71. The final judgment was reduced to $980,209.89.

Decedent Mayso A. Lawrence, Sr., worked as a laborer at the American Smelting and Refining Company and in Bethlehem Steel’s 68-inch hot strip mill at Sparrows Point. He died from lung cancer in October 2007.

The jury awarded him and his family $2,930,532.09. The final judgment was reduced to $782,621.24.

Decedent Rufus E. Carter worked as a laborer and crane operator at the American Smelting and Refining Company from 1966 to 1975. He died from lung cancer in November 2003.

The jury awarded him and his family $2,017,302.50. The final judgment was reduced to $976,203.41.

Decedent Roger C. Hewitt, Sr. worked as a laborer, mechanic steamfitter and pipefitter at the Pennsylvania Railroad from 1943 to 1944, and as a laborer and crane operator at Bethlehem Steel from 1946 to 1978.

Hewitt was also a long-time smoker. According to the opinion, he smoked a half-pack to a full pack of cigarettes every day for 65 years.

He died from lung cancer in December 2008.

During trial, Wallace & Gale expert Dr. Gerald R. Kerby testified that Hewitt’s tobacco use is roughly 75 percent at fault for causing the decedent’s lung cancer, while his asbestos exposure is roughly 25 percent at fault.

However, the trial court did not allow the jury to apportion damages, saying it would be an unscientific, wild guess.

“If the court of appeals wants to send us down that path to another swamp, I suppose we could do that,” the trial court concluded. “It’s an interesting issue. Technologically, it’s interesting. But we don’t have any basis for drawing an intelligent conclusion regarding what we’re going to plug into the matrix. So no, we’re not doing that.”

As a result, the jury awarded Hewitt and his family $2,686,686.07. The final judgment was reduced to $1,325,495.95.

Wallace & Gale appealed to the Court of Special Appeals, which then sent it to the Court of Appeals of Maryland.

In regards to the apportionment issue, the lower appeals court held that the trial court erroneously refused to allow Kerby’s testimony and jury instructions on apportionment. The high court disagreed, saying the lower court improperly relied on New Jersey case law rather than Maryland law.

Greene explained that apportionment of damages is only appropriate when the injury is “reasonably divisible” and when there are two or more causes of injury.

“Where an injury is reasonably – or theoretically – divisible, the burden of proof would shift to the defendant to prove that apportionment of damages is appropriate,” Greene wrote.

However, the court concluded that Hewitt’s injury is not reasonably divisible.

“While there are many variables that go into the causal effects of tobacco and asbestos exposure,” Greene wrote, “there is evidence that the effect is multiplicative in nature, which we are satisfied is indicative of an indivisible injury.”

Greene explained that under a comparative negligence system, “a plaintiff’s contributory negligence does not bar recovery, but rather reduces proportionately his or her damages in relation to his or her degree of fault.”

He added that apportioning damages to the plaintiff’s smoking history is equivalent to holding Hewitt accountable.

The court concluded that the trial court properly excluded Kerby’s testimony and rejected apportionment of damages.

Raker dissented, saying the Court of Special Appeals made the correct decision when it ruled that apportionment concerns causation rather than comparative negligence principles.

“In my view,” Raker wrote, “a categorical rule that death is an indivisible injury incapable of apportionment speeds past an accepted principle of law: death can be capable of apportionment as to damages, but not as to fault.”

Furthermore, Raker argued that the majority improperly relied solely on the plaintiffs’ experts at trial to support its conclusion against apportionment when it excluded Kerby’s testimony.

As a result, Raker suggests remanding the case so a hearing could be held to determine if Kerby’s opinion met the standards for scientific testimony before it was accepted or rejected.

“Doing so would have permitted the court to make an informed decision as to whether there was a reasonable basis for apportioning the injury,” Raker wrote. “The majority’s per se rule prevents a trial court from evaluating the merit of emerging scientific theories of causation.”

In regards to the “use plaintiffs” argument, the trial court held that “there is no question that use plaintiffs have to be included. They’re supposed to be included. They’re necessary parties.”

“Use plaintiffs” in this case refer to the decedents’ families. They are not considered typical plaintiffs because they never formally joined the action.

Regardless, this court agreed with the trial court that the “use plaintiffs” are still able to recover damages.

Greene explained that Maryland law does not require a formal joinder by the designated use plaintiffs in a wrongful death action.

“Absent any clear direction or requirement that formal joinder was necessary, on the facts of this case, the use plaintiffs’ knowing consent to the litigation brought on their behalf and active participation in the litigation was the functional equivalent of joinder,” he wrote.

Greene added that according to Maryland law at the time of trial, the use plaintiffs were real parties in interest and were not required to formally join in order to share in an award, especially because they were listed as plaintiffs in several of the filings, they were deposed, testified at trial and were subject to cross examination.

“It’s obvious that everyone involved, including Respondent’s counsel, considered the use plaintiffs to be parties to the litigation,” Greene concluded.

Information about mesothelioma from the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center

The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, “According to the CDC, high risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include: US Navy, shipyards, power plants, manufacturing factories, chemical plants, oil refineries, mines, smelters, aerospace manufacturing facilities, demolition construction work sites, railroads, automotive manufacturing facilities, or auto brake shops. With mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure, the cancer may not show up for decades after exposure. The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. According to the CDC between 2500 and 3000 US Citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma this year.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control the states with the highest incidence of lung cancer include: Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, and West Virginia. The states with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include: New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maine, Washington, and Wyoming. Because of their population size California, New York, Texas, Ohio, Illinois, and Florida are the states with the most diagnosed victims of mesothelioma. http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com

Has your family member been diagnosed with mesothelioma? Collectively, has the family made an effort to contact any skilled mesothelioma attorneys about compensation? If the answer is no please call 866-714-6466

(PRWEB) September 23, 2013

The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, “We are certain thousands of lung cancer asbestos exposure victims, or even diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, are never compensated for their exposure to asbestos. From years of experience, we feel this is because the family was not properly educated or was not aware that there could potentially be substantial compensation for their suffering. To make certain all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma or lung cancer asbestos exposure victims get proper compensation, we have come up with a test to help both diagnosed victims and their family members,” says the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center.

Lung Cancer Asbestos Exposure, or Mesothelioma Compensation Test For Family Members Of Diagnosed Victims From The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center:

  • Has your family member been diagnosed with mesothelioma? Collectively, has the family made an effort to contact any skilled mesothelioma attorneys about compensation? If the answer is no please call 866-714-6466.
  • Has your family member been diagnosed with any type of lung cancer after being exposed to asbestos while serving in the US Navy, working in a factory, industrial workplace, or in the building trades during the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s? If the answer is yes please call the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center at 866-714-6466.
  • Has your family member been diagnosed with asbestosis? If the answer is yes, please call the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center at 866-714-6466.

The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center wants to highlight the Asbestos Trust Funds. These funds were set up for any type of lung cancer or mesothelioma that was directly related to exposure to asbestos. They were not exclusively set up for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma. This is a common mistake people often make in assuming the funds are for mesothelioma victims only. http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com

The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, “According to the American Cancer Society, inhalation of asbestos fibers has been linked to the increased risk of lung cancer in many studies of workers exposed to asbestos. In general, the greater the exposure to asbestos, the higher the risk of lung cancer. Most cases of lung cancer in asbestos workers occur at least 15 years after initial exposure to asbestos. With workers exposed to asbestos that also smoke, the lung cancer risk is much greater than if you were to add the risks from these exposures separately.” http://www.cancer.org/sslink/asbestos

According to the National Cancer Institute, “Asbestos has been mined and used commercially in North America since the late 1800s. Its use increased greatly during World War. Since then, asbestos has been used in many industries. For example, the building and construction industries have used it for strengthening cement and plastics as well as for insulation, roofing, fireproofing, and sound absorption. The shipbuilding industry has used asbestos to insulate boilers, steam pipes, and hot water pipes. The automotive industry uses asbestos in vehicle brake shoes and clutch pads. Asbestos has also been used in ceiling and floor tiles; paints, coatings, and adhesives; and plastics. In addition, asbestos has been found in vermiculite-containing garden products and some talc-containing crayons.” http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/asbestos

Important Note From The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center: “We want to hear from any victim of mesothelioma or lung cancer that was exposed to asbestos in any state. This includes: California, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Texas, Maine, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, West Virginia, North Carolina Tennessee, Oklahoma, Georgia, Missouri, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, Wyoming, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Idaho, Washington, Arizona, Nevada, and Alabama. Again we need family members or friends to help us get these victims identified.”

(PRWEB) September 17, 2013

The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says,”We fear many diagnosed victims of lung cancer or mesothelioma are US Navy veterans that are not aware they may be eligible for what could be significant financial compensation. Because of a lack of information on these issues, we developed a tip sheet for the victim to ask his/her medical doctor. The goal is to obtain answers to key questions about the victims actual condition, that in turn will help the Victims Center make certain that everything possible is done to assist these individuals in receiving the best possible compensation.”

The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center has compiled a what-to-do list for diagnosed victims of lung cancer, or families who fear mesothelioma and a loved one exposed to asbestos while serving in the US Navy:

  • The attending physician needs to examine chest x-rays for any indication of asbestos scaring, especially if the US Navy Veteran is a non smoker, or has not smoked in sometime.
  • The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center is urging diagnosed victims of lung cancer to ask the attending physician if there are any visible masses or tumors on the lungs.
  • If so, can a biopsy be done to examine the mass or tumor to see if it could be mesothelioma?
  • Diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, lung cancer victims who were exposed to asbestos at work, or their family members can call the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center anytime at 866-714-6466, if they have any questions.

“There are currently 20 million US Navy Veterans. If they have been diagnosed with lung cancer and they were exposed to asbestos on a US Navy ship, we want to hear from them, especially if they are a nonsmoker or have not smoked for some time.”

Very Important Notice: The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, “If a US Navy Veteran or person had workplace exposure to asbestos, we strongly encourage a yearly chest X-ray. The X-ray should focus on excess fluid build up in the lungs, and or asbestos scaring of the lungs.
