  • Cancer type: Ovarian clear cell carcinoma
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Description: Ovarian cancer is a significant cause of death in women worldwide with the majority of ovarian cancers forming in women under the age of 65. Due to late stage diagnosis and a lack of reliable screening tests, survival rates after 5 years are below 50% in developing counties. Ovarian cancer can spread to tissues in close proximity to the ovaries, including the lining of the abdomen, lungs, lymph nodes and liver. Ovarian cancer has a number of histological subtypes and ovarian clear cell carcinomas generally respond poorly to chemotherapy
