Hutchinson Center to lead $11.5 million ovarian-cancer research consortium

Core is a novel feature of the Seattle SPORE program that aims to create a dynamic link between the research effort and the community," Urban says.

Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of gynecological-cancer mortality in the United States, resulting in more than 14,000 deaths each year. Overall survival after diagnosis is poor, in part because more than 75 percent of cases are diagnosed after the cancer has spread outside of the ovaries. The average woman diagnosed with the disease lives for three or four years after completing treatment. In contrast, five-year survival for localized ovarian cancer is about 90 percent, which strongly suggests that earlier detection would result in many saved lives.
