Check out Treatment and Drugs for Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma (or, more precisely, malignant mesothelioma) is a rare form of cancer that develops from cells of the mesothelium, the protective lining that covers many of the internal organs of the body.

What treatment you undergo for mesothelioma depends on your health and certain aspects of your cancer, such as its stage and location. Unfortunately, mesothelioma often is an aggressive disease and for most people a cure isn't possible. Mesothelioma is usually diagnosed at an advanced stage — when it isn't possible to remove the cancer through an operation. Instead, your doctor may work to control your cancer to make you more comfortable.

UK Graduate Nabbed By NDLEA for carrying Heavy White Drugs

Operatives of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency have apprehended a 30-year-old man, John Arinze, for being in possession of 2.1 kilogrames of methamphetamine.
The NDLEA Head of Public Affairs, Mr. Mitchell Ofoyeju, said the arrest was made during the outward screening of passengers on a Virgin Atlantic flight to London at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.
NDLEA Airport Commander, Mr. Hamza Umar, who confirmed the arrest, said, “Four parcels containing substances that tested positive for methamphetamine were found carefully hidden inside Arinze’s luggage.
“Officers had to cut open the sides of the bag to recover the parcels of drugs. On interrogation as to the purposes of his travel, the suspect claimed he had an interview in London.”
 Arinze, who is a career counsellor, also claimed to be an ambassador of Bolton University in the United Kingdom where he had lived for three years.

 Arinze claimed that he was given the bag by a friend, who bought his return ticket to London.
He said, “I came to Nigeria in June as an alumni ambassador  of my university. I have a Master’s degree in International Business from Bolton University. Work was at advanced stage for an exhibition in Onitsha with parents and prospective candidates, who are interested in furthering their education in the United Kingdom.
 “In the process, I got an interview request in London which I had wanted to quickly attend and then return to Nigeria. A friend who assisted me in buying my ticket gave me the bag to use for my trip. It was inside the bag that the parcels of drug were found. I truly regret the incident and will like my friends, relatives and business partners to please understand my situation.”

Chairman of NDLEA, Ahmadu Giade, described Arinze’s excuse as disappointing.
He said, “It is sad and disappointing that the suspect could yield to the demand to traffic drugs considering his academic background and profession as a career counsellor.”

Fake drugs, unaccredited varsities, illegal buildings...Nigeria in carnival of counterfeits - Photos

With Nigeria struggling as much as it can to redeem its image in the global community, the nation still finds it difficult to curtail the ravenous ruins caused by the army of quacks in various segments of her national life. KEHINDE OYETIMI reports.

HER situation looked hopeless and precarious. As she slept on the sofa, her mother wondered if miracles still happened. Anna’s health had deteriorated so rapidly that those who saw her a week before immediately beseeched whatever extraterrestrial powers that they knew to come to the ill girl’s aid. Weeks gave birth to months and her condition only worsened. Her father (Chukwudi), a self-proclaimed pharmacist, had dealt over the years in illicit drugs, and had sold same to many unsuspecting buyers. His family was oblivious of his dealings; they had trusted him implicitly. He had met with his friends hoping that they could help. He moved Anna to various medical centres but she was referred from one hospital to another. Anna’s father could no longer afford the bills; he took his daughter home, resorted to spiritual help and resigned to fate.

Controversy trails N20m seized fake drugs in Lagos

The last may not have been of a businessman currently held in custody over possession of fake drugs which he, in connivance of others, repackaged and sold to the public.
Already, a drug store operator in Okokomaiko (names withheld) is seeking the protection of law enforcement agents from some of his customers who are allegedly threatening to kill him for selling fake drugs to them.
It was gathered that two of the children of the consumers are currently ill in a private hospital at Iba area of the state after being administered with the drugs.
Ibeabuchi, an eight-year-old girl, is reported to be hospitalised following a drug her father purchased from the shop of the drug dealer and the same fate now befalls one Abigael, a 10-yearold girl.
