About this study
The purpose of this study is to assemble a collection of serial plasma biospecimens from women with ovarian, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer for future research projects to identify changes in levels of various plasma components that occur during the course of ovarian cancer, including changes that occur with debulking surgery, chemotherapy, disease relapse, and subsequent therapy.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
Women 18 years or older diagnosed with epithelial ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer (hereafter referred to as OC).
- Women with a pathologic diagnosis of OC.
- Able to provide informed consent.
- Patients receiving treatment at Mayo Clinic Rochester.
- Borderline tumor or non-epithelial histology (germ cell tumor, carcinosarcoma, etc.).
- Other malignancy within the past five years, other than non-melanoma skin cancers that have been completely resected or cervical carcinoma in situ.
