Cure Research discussion for Ovarian Cancer:

Genes and Disease by the National Center for Biotechnology (Excerpt)

So far, the best opportunity to reduce mortality is through early detection (general screening of the population for BRCA1 and BRCA2 is not yet recommended). However, new strategies to find anticancer drugs are constantly being developed. The latest, called "synthetic lethal screening" looks for new drug targets in organisms such as yeast and fruit flies. In the same way that studies in yeast recently helped to identify the functions of BRCA1 and BRCA2, it is thought that drugs that work in more primative organisms will also be applicable to humans.

What You Need To Know About Ovarian Cancer: NCI (Excerpt)

Scientists are studying ways to detect ovarian cancer before symptoms develop. They are exploring the usefulness of measuring the level of CA 125 , a substance called a tumor marker , which is often found in higher-than-normal amounts in the blood of women with ovarian cancer. They also are evaluating transvaginal ultrasound , a test that may help detect the disease early. (Source: excerpt from What You Need To Know About Ovarian Cancer: NCI)
