Latest Research : Cancer : Ovarian Cancer
New technique to visualise tumour cells during surgery
A new multispectral fluorescence imaging system has been developed by a team of researchers in Munich, headed by Vasilis Ntziachristos, Professor of Biological Imaging. A study carried out on nine patients with ovarian cancer has shown that the new system can be used to localize cancer cells during surgery.

Autophagy helps ovarian cancer cells to survive
A single tumor-suppressing gene is a key to understanding, and perhaps killing, dormant ovarian cancer cells that persist after initial treatment only to reawaken years later, researchers at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center report in the December Journal of Clinical Investigation.

VEGF Trap shows activity in patients with advanced ovarian cancer
Preliminary results of a randomized, international Phase II trial of VEGF Trap (aflibercept) show activity in patients with recurrent epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) who had received three or four prior chemotherapy regimens and had become resistant to platinum-based chemotherapy agents. The findings, which are being presented today at the American Society of Clinical Oncology's annual meeting, may indicate a role for this targeted therapy in women with ovarian cancer who have exhausted all other options.

Ovariectomy may put younger women at risk for an earlier death
Death rates rise when women under 45 years old undergo bilateral ovariectomy -- surgical removal of both ovaries -- and do not receive proper hormone replacement therapy, according to a new Mayo Clinic study to be published in the October 1 issue of The Lancet Oncology. Mortality from all causes increased 1.7 times for women in this age category, and was particularly increased for estrogen-related cancers and diseases of the brain and cardiovascular system. The increased risk was mainly restricted to those women who were not given estrogen after the surgery until at least age 45 (within five years of the approximate age of normal menopause). Also, the increased risk became evident only 10 or more years after the ovariectomy.

Chronic stress agitates ovarian cancer
When mice with ovarian cancer are stressed, their tumors grow and spread more quickly, but that effect can be blocked using a medication commonly prescribed for heart disease, according to a preclinical study by researchers at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.

Acetaminophen may lower ovarian cancer risk
Regular intake of acetaminophen, found in several painkillers, may cut ovarian cancer risk in women, but scientists add that the findings need to be confirmed. Women who regularly use acetaminophen may be 30 percent less likely to develop ovarian cancer than those who use the drug rarely or not at all, found Greek researcher Stefanos Bonovas along with his colleagues.

Ginger could help fight ovarian cancer
Ginger could kill ovarian cancer cells and may help fight the disease, says a new study but researchers warn more work is required to draw a firm conclusion.

Multimarker assay for ovarian cancer most promising to date
The search for a specific protein that could help diagnose ovarian cancer in its early stages has for years eluded researchers who are seeking a reliable and accurate test for the disease. Instead of searching for a single protein, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine used a new technology to analyze a large number of proteins, or potential biomarkers, from a very small sample of serum from women with ovarian cancer. They identified a combination of several biomarkers that could help detect the disease much earlier than it is currently being diagnosed, according to findings presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, April 1 to 5 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

Intraperitoneal chemotherapy improves survival in ovarian cancer patients
50-year-old method for delivering chemotherapy directly into the abdomen is making a comeback as investigators have found that it increases survival - by more than a year - in some women with advanced ovarian cancer. Results from a seven-year study of more than 400 patients nationwide are published in the January 5 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

Tea Drinking Reduces Risk of Ovarian Cancer
Women who drank at least two cups of tea a day had a lower risk of ovarian cancer than those who did not drink tea, according to a study in the December 12/26 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine, one of the JAMA/Archives journals.
