Ovarian Cancer​

Ovarian Cancer

More than 650 clinical trials are currently accepting participants diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer.

Ovarian cancer develops when abnormal cells in the ovary begin to grow and divide uncontrollably, eventually forming a growth known as a tumour. If not detected and treated early, these cancerous cells can progressively invade surrounding tissues and may metastasise to other parts of the body. The specific type of ovarian cancer is determined by the type of cell in which the cancer originates. There are several types of ovarian cancer: Epithelial Ovarian Cancer, which is the most common type, originating in the cells on the surface of the ovary; Stromal Tumours, which develops in the ovarian tissue that contains hormone-producing cells; and Germ Cell Tumours, which begins in the egg-producing cells and are more common in younger women.
