Paul Kraus and Barry Knowles are not the only long-term survivors of malignant mesothelioma. There are some people who survive beyond all odds for quite a while. Most of their survival seems to be due to a better immune system conditioning. Some used alternative or complementary therapies (under guidance from licensed clinicians) in addition to the chemotherapy, while others participated in clinical trials of immune therapy.
