Discovery paves way for improved ovarian cancer care

A new ovarian cancer study could help doctors to match patients with the best therapy for their cancer. The research has been able to identify small (but important) differences in ovarian cancer patients that could influence their response to treatment.

There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach for treating ovarian cancer so being able to bring this personalised approach to treatment is crucial for increasing patient survival rates which have seen little improvement over the last 30 years.
