#iPGN: Scientists discover new treatment for ovarian cancer

Scientists at the University of Arizona Cancer Center at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, United States of America, on Friday, discovered a new treatment for ovarian cancer.

According to sciencelive.com, a science website, the discovery can improve response rates (increase the rate of tumour shrinkage) and prolong the time until the cancer recurs.

“This is a new, exciting, target medication in treating recurrent ovarian cancer.  Recurrent ovarian cancer is almost always fatal and new treatments are desperately needed.

“The breakthrough showed a trend in improving survival, although these data are not yet matured” the report added.

Ovarian cancer occurs when a tumour forms in one or both of a woman’s ovaries. Ovarian cancer is often termed a silent killer because its symptoms are not obvious until it gets to an advanced stage.
