Malignant pleural mesothelioma as a human tumor has an excellent
anaimal equivalent and is also usefull by examinations in cell lines.
However not everyone exposed  in the past with asbestos will contract
asbestos related diseases like malignant pleural mesothelioma.
Typing for HLA would be interesting in a group of mesothelioma
patients to see if there is some pattern combined with an increased
risk of developing this malignant diease. 
Working in a region with a high incidence of mesothelioma (15/100.000)
I would be intersested to contact fellow doctors to conduct a study in
this field.
