The Science of Promise.

We believe that science is the key to curing ovarian cancer in all women. The science employed in clinical trials compares the currently recognized, best available standard of care with a new treatment that holds the promise of being safer or more effective, offering alternatives for those with ovarian cancer.

Though clinical trials are an important part of research and care of women with ovarian cancer, many have misconceptions about what these trials are, and the types of treatments available. We encourage you to learn about the options available to you as early as possible during treatment.
