North Shore-LIJ research collaboration with Correlogic Systems to advance ovarian cancer blood test

d Dr. Lovecchio. "When caught very early, the survival rate can be as high as 90 percent. Unfortunately, most of these cancers are caught only after the disease has progressed to the later stages, when the survival rate is only about 25 percent."

This collaboration was brought about through the leadership of U.S. Rep. Steve Israel, of Huntington, co-chair of the House Cancer Caucus and a champion of cancer research. Congressman Israel introduced a Congressional resolution promoting research on this technology and calling for federal and private insurance coverage of ovarian cancer tests based on the technology. The resolution was approved in the House in July 2002.

"I'm pleased to have played an instrumental role in forming this partnership," noted Rep. Israel. "After final validation, these new technologies could diagnose ovarian cancer in its early stages, when survival rates are dramatically higher than in later stages. It is only fitting that this research is conducted on Long Island, where we have extremely talented researchers and state-of-the-art facilities. I am confident that through this partnership, we will save women's lives."

North Shore-LIJ's participation in this collaboration is financed through the support of The Lynne Cohen Foundation for Ovarian Cancer Research, Row for a Cure and the Sonia L. Totino Gynecologic Cancer Research Fund, whose combined contributions total more than $200,000. These organizations are dedicated to supporting research and raising awareness of ovarian and other gynecologic cancers, with a goal of increasing survival and improving the quality of life of women affected by them.

"Our goal is to change the outcome of ovarian cancer for thousands of women diagnosed with this disease each year," said Peter Levine, president of Correlogic Systems, Inc. "The collaboration with the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, with its powerful reach and expertise, will contribute importantly to th
