1.2 To make available summary information (in an anonymous form) regarding the subjects in this registry to Consortium members, and other investigators, who can use these data to plan research projects and evaluate the feasibility of such projects,

1.3 To make available summary information (number of new patients seen in the clinic, number of mutations, number of preventive surgeries, average age of patients seen) to the Lynne Cohen Foundation for Ovarian Cancer Research, in order to document the numbers of subjects who utilize their supported clinics.
