Vermillion's OVA1 Receives New Statement by Society of Gynecologic Oncology
Date:6/11/2013

ed proof source for physicians and payers to assess OVA1's clinical performance and comparative medical benefits versus today's standard of care.
  • Places OVA1 use in the context of current ACOG practice guidelines, where CA125 has been used off-label for many years to predict malignancy before surgery, although with inferior performance.
  • Two key developments in 2013 underlined the timeliness of this updated statement by SGO. The first was the publication of the company's second pivotal clinical study, OVA500, in the February edition of Gynecologic Oncology. OVA500 was led by Dr. Robert E. Bristow, director of Gynecologic Oncology Services at UC Irvine Healthcare in Orange, California. The second development was a study in the June edition of the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology, which made the front page of the New York Times under the headline, "Widespread Flaws Found in Ovarian Cancer Treatment." This study, also led by Dr. Bristow, reported that most women with ovarian cancer "are treated by doctors and hospitals that see few cases of the disease and lack expertise in the complex surgery and chemotherapy that can prolong life." Dr. Bristow said, "If we could just make sure that women get to the people who are trained to take care of them, the impact would be much greater than that of any new chemotherapy drug or biological agent."

    After reviewing the SGO statement, Dr. Hector Chapa, MD, FACOG and medical director of the Women's Specialty Center in Dallas observed: "This new statement by SGO affirms the important role which OVA1 should play in the workup of patients with an adnexal mass, and particularly before surgery is undertaken by a surgeon uncertified in the gynecologic oncology specialty. This is important because a large number of malignancies are discovered after a surgery where the mass was thought to be benign after
