Brief description Malignant mesothelioma is an aggressive and incurable cancer. This study will build on our recent data showing a protein termed FGF-9, not previously linked with mesothelioma, could significantly stimulate mesothelioma growth. This project will examine the biologic activities of FGF-9 and its receptors in mesothelioma, and the therapeutic benefits of antagonizing FGF-9 in mesothelioma in vivo.
