What can fibulin-3 reveal about mesothelioma?

Fibulin-3 test can be performed as an additional examination procedure in order to evaluate the concentration of this protein within the bloodstream when mesothelioma is suspected in a patient. Consequently, if high levels of fibulin-3 have been detected, this may be an indicator of mesothelioma occurring.

However, the fibulin-3 test is not considered to be completely reliable and thus it is recommended to be used in conjunction with other methods of diagnosis.

We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
