BAP1 Test Increases Accuracy of Mesothelioma Diagnosis

A new study published in the Chinese Journal of Pathology concluded that testing for the expression of the BAP1 protein increases the accuracy of mesothelioma diagnosis to 93%. Pleural mesothelioma is notoriously difficult to diagnose because of how many different diseases it mimics. Studies have found that the tumor suppressing protein BAP1 is found in 70% to 90% of pleural mesothelioma patients but only in 20% of non-mesothelioma patients.

Zy Guo, author of the report concluded that, “It is therefore recommended that BAP1 can be used in conjunction with other immunohistochemical markers to improve the diagnostic accuracy of malignant mesothelioma.” The hope is that BAP1 can help provide a more accurate diagnosis earlier which is critical to extending mesothelioma survival rates and increasing standards of living for patients.
