NCI's Ovarian Cancer Biomarkers Test

Five research groups are searching for ovarian cancer biomarkers using blood samples from the Prostate,Lung, Colorectal and Ovarian (PLCO) cancer screening trial. PLCO , which ran from 1993 to 2001, is a trial in which women between 55 and 74 were randomly assigned to two groups an arm in which women received annual CA-125 test and one in which women had transvaginal ultrasounds.

The current research may show which markers found in participant's blood can detect OC.
