Cancer Treatment Centers of America(R) Studies Treatment That Aims Chemotherapy Directly at Ovarian Cancer Cells
Date:6/17/2009

ible will be treated with Doxil(R) (pegylated liposomal doxorubicin), an approved drug used to treat ovarian cancer, or with EC145, which combines Doxil with folate (vitamin B-9).

The PRECEDENT study is yet another example of CTCA's commitment to expanding medical treatment options for women battling ovarian cancer. In October 2008, CTCA at Midwestern Regional Medical Center announced a ground-breaking clinical trial of an ovarian cancer vaccine called o-Vax that uses cells taken from an individual patient's tumor to stimulate immune cells to attack the existing cancer. Patients continue to be accepted for this clinical trial.

"CTCA offers a powerful combination of traditional and innovative therapies provided by a team of cancer experts who work with each patient individually, to determine the appropriate combination of therapies to fight cancer," Dr. Williams says.

Ovarian cancer is the ninth most common cancer among women, and the leading cause of death due to cancer of the female reproductive system. According to the American Cancer Society, it is estimated that there will be 21,550 new cases of ovarian cancer in the U.S. in 2009 and 14,600 cancer-related deaths. A woman's risk of getting invasive ovarian cancer during her lifetime is about one out of every 71 women.

Patients interested in the clinical trial may contact a CTCA Oncology Information Specialist at 877-98-TRIAL.
