New Guidelines Should Improve Ovarian Cancer Detection
Date:10/28/2007

Women who have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer are at increased risk and should pay particular attention to the symptoms, Duska said.

Treatment of ovarian cancer usually involves a combination of surgery and chemotherapy. Advances in chemotherapy have made the late-stage disease more survivable, Duska said.

In a more intensive regimen recently shown to improve survival, standard intravenous chemotherapy is combined with chemotherapy injected directly into the abdominal cavity. The abdominal injection exposes hard-to-reach cancer cells to higher levels of chemotherapy than can be reached intravenously.

"That was a breakthrough, I think," Duska said.

Other treatments being explored include new chemotherapy drugs, vaccines, gene therapy and immunotherapy, which boosts the body's own immune system to help combat cancer, according to the Mayo Clinic.
