Combination Strategy Could Hold Promise for Ovarian Cancer December 5, 2017 Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center researchers demonstrated that mice with ovarian cancer that received drugs to reactivate dormant genes along with other drugs that activate the immune system had a greater reduction of tumor burden and significantly longer survival than those [...]

Researchers advance technique to detect ovarian cancer November 30, 2017 Researchers at Rice University and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have refined and, for the first time, run in vivo tests of a method that may allow The noninvasive technique relies on single-walled carbon nanotubes that can be optically [...]
Decoding the molecular mechanisms of ovarian cancer progression November 28, 2017 Identifying critical lncRNA in ovarian cancer EMT. a Ovarian cancer patients (n = 320) with genomic and molecular profiling data that classified into epithelial (Epi; n = 231) or mesenchymal (Mes; n = 89) subtypes were selected for analysis. b Heatmap of 386 genes that were differentially expressed in the mesenchymal subtype [...]
New Blood Test Developed to Diagnose Ovarian Cancer October 31, 2017 Investigators from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute are leveraging the power of artificial intelligence to develop a new technique to detect ovarian cancer early and accurately. The team has identified a network of circulating microRNAs – small, [...]
Scientists track ovarian cancers to site of origin: Fallopian tubes October 23, 2017 A genomic study suggests that most ovarian cancers originate in the fallopian tube. Credit: Carolyn Hruban Some scientists have suspected that the most common form of ovarian cancer may originate in the fallopian tubes, the thin fibrous [...]
