Treatment Options for Recurrent or Persistent Ovarian Epithelial Cancer

Treatment of recurrent ovarian epithelial cancer may include the following:

  • Chemotherapy using one or more anticancer drugs, with or without surgery.
  • A clinical trial of surgery.
  • A clinical trial of targeted therapy.

Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with recurrent ovarian epithelial cancer. For more specific results, refine the search by using other search features, such as the location of the trial, the type of treatment, or the name of the drug. General information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site.
