Prof Nico van Zandwijk - University of Sydney
Prof Nico van Zandwijk, talking to ecancer.tv at the 2010 ELCC conference, discusses the dangers of asbestos related diseases and his research and clinical trials into treating these. Asbestos is commonly used without regulations in many parts of the world, especially South East Asia which may lead to a substantial increase in these diseases in the future. Early diagnosis is very important and genetic markers could be a key way of achieving this.
