ASU researchers find potential clues to ovarian cancer

Karen Anderson, a researcher at the Biodesign Institute, started out with about 10,000 possible biomarkers for ovarian cancer.

Arizona State University researchers said they have identified three promising biological signals that could help detect ovarian cancer before patients display any symptoms. Researchers from the Biodesign Institute said identifying the biomarkers – a type of blood-born signal – is another step toward early detection. ASU’s new study is the first use of high density… Read More →

While women are busy caring for their children, their clients or both, there’s one important individual they tend to neglect — themselves. More frequently than not, women don’t make their own health a… Read More →

Study reveals genomic similarities between breast cancer and ovarian cancers

by in Business News | Healthcare

One subtype of breast cancer shares many genetic features with high-grade serous ovarian cancer, a cancer that is very difficult to treat, according to researchers. The findings suggest that the two cancers are of similar molecular origin, which may facilitate the comparison of therapeutic data for subtypes of breast and ovarian cancers. The researchers, using… Read More →

by in Events | Prevention

The Anne Rita Monahan Foundation’s 4th annual Tea For Teal event will raise money for ovarian cancer research. The American Cancer Society projects that 22,280 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012. Statistically, 15,500 of them will die. The Anne Rita Monahan (ARM) Foundation wants to change those numbers. The foundation is run… Read More →
