Arizona's BIO5 Institute: Over $1.3M in Grants for Ovarian Cancer Research

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Tue, Oct 16, 2018

Ovarian cancer has a mortality rate of up to 70%. This is partly due to the fact that the disease is rarely detected in its early stages because the symptoms are vague and nonspecific. Currently, there is no accepted screening method for ovarian cancer. Due to the mortality rate, physicians often counsel women at high risk to have their ovaries and fallopian tubes removed as a precaution. Jennifer Barton, director of University of Arizona’s BIO5 Institute wants to change all this. With $863,000 from the United States Army and nearly $500,000 from the NIH in research funding, her plans for a falloposcope that will detect early-stage ovarian cancer is moving forward.

UPitt Establishing Comprehensive Ovarian Biology Research Institute with Assistance from $3M Grant

Posted by Laura Braden on Wed, Oct 25, 2017

Researchers from science institutions around the world study different forms of cancer, to gain better understandings of the diseases to assist with the development of new treatment methods. One of these cancers that is continuously being studied is ovarian cancer, which effects 1 in 75 women, according to the American Cancer Society. The University of Pittsburgh plans to further enhance ovarian cancer research opportunities with the establishment of a new research center dedicated to ovarian cancer and biology research.

The National Cancer Institute is funding a million dollar study at the University of Arizona to help detect ovarian cancer sooner. It is hoped this project will lead to the first effective screening test for a disease that kills 14,000 women a year and often gives little to no warning of its presence until it’s too late.

UCSD Gathers $7.6M for Ovarian Cancer Research

Posted by Robert Larkin on Tue, Jun 09, 2015

According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), ovarian cancer accounts for approximately 3 percent of all cancers in women and is the fifth leading cause of cancer-related death among women in the United States. Ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other female reproductive system cancer, due in part to a lack of symptoms during early stages and a lack of effective screening tests. In 2014, for example, an estimated 22,000 women were diagnosed with ovarian cancer in the United States, and approximately 14,000 died of the disease.
