  • In one of the first trials to combine a biologic agent with a conventional chemotherapy agent for the treatment of ovarian cancer, researchers found a significant increase in the response to therapy and the duration of progression free survival without additional toxicity.

EMBARGOED FOR RELEASE UNTIL 10:30 a.m., PST, Friday, March 24, 2006

  • In the largest study of its kind, researchers will present new criteria for detecting ovarian cancer malignancy in postmenopausal asymptomatic women, 55 to 74 years old. Utilizing the new criteria, researchers determined that they could accurately predict 93 percent of the advanced ovarian cancers and 87 percent of the early ovarian cancers in asymptomatic women enrolled in an annual screening program and found to have an abnormal screen.
