RATIONALE: Screening tests may help doctors detect cancer cells early and plan more effective treatment for ovarian cancer.
PURPOSE: Screening trial to determine the significance of cancer antigen 125 (CA125) levels in detecting ovarian cancer in participants who have a high genetic risk of developing ovarian cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Ovarian Cancer||Other: Early detection|
Show Detailed Description
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||2430 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||Ovarian Cancer Screening Pilot Trial in High Risk Women|
|Study Start Date :||May 2002|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||December 2013|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||December 2014|
Other: Early detection
CA125 is measured in blood and the longitudinal results interpreted with a statistical algorithm to determine if there has been a significant increase from baseline.
- Sensitivity of early detection for ovarian cancer [ Time Frame: Up to one year since last blood test ]
- Specificity of early detection [ Time Frame: Up to one year from last blood test ]
