The National Institutes of Health has selected the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle to lead a five-year, $11.5 million investigation into the causes, prevention, early detection and treatment of ovarian cancer. The Pacific Ovarian Cancer Research Consortium, funded by the National Cancer Institute, will involve researchers from the University of Washington, Swedish Medical Center, the Pacific Northwest Research Institute, the VA Puget Sound Health Care System (Seattle Division) and Virginia Mason Medical Center. Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the Gilda Radner Ovarian Cancer Screening Program in Los Angeles also will participate.

At least 3,500 women throughout Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho are expected to participate in the Consortium's various studies.
