  • Description: Epithelial ovarian cancer is diagnosed at late disease stage in more than 70% of patients. Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of gynaecological cancer mortality worldwide with a 5-year overall survival of 3039%. It has long been recognised by clinicians that ovarian cancer is a set of heterogeneous diseases. NUOC-1 cell line represents a novel ovarian cancer cell line derived from the ascites of a chemotherapy nave patient with a primary mixed endometrioid/ clear cell/ high grade serous ovarian cancer
