Detailed Description:

General Objectives -To identify the efficacy of the nutritional supplement Ocoxin-viusid to increase the quality of life of patients with epithelial advanced or metastatic ovarian cancer. Specific Objectives - Identify the influence of the research product on the nutritional status and quality of life of patients. - Describe the toxicity of the research product. - Identify the adverse reactions to the chemotherapy scheme and quantify the interruptions to it by acute toxicity.

Quality of life. It will be measured as: - EORTC Questionnaire QLQ-C30 (Score of each item and general score). Measurement time: at the beginning and 3 weeks after the 3rd cycle of QT - EORTC Questionnaire QLQ-OV28 (Score of each item and general score). Measurement time: at the beginning and 3 weeks after the 3rd cycle of QT - Karnofsky index (Score of 0-100 points at intervals of 10). Measurement time: at the beginning, in each cycle of QT and 3 weeks after the 3rd cycle of QT

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ocoxin-Viusid®
Ocoxin-Viusid® before, during and after the Chemotherapy treatment.
Dietary Supplement: Ocoxin-Viusid
Ocoxin-Viusid group (Experimental): Oral solution Ocoxin-Viusid (30 ml vials) were used at a rate of 60ml / day (1 vial every 12 hours), preferably administered after breakfast and dinner. The treatment will start a week before start Chemotheray treatment (CT) and, It will maintenance until 3 weeks after finished the last cycle of CT (3 cycles of CT of Carboplatin/Paclitaxel or Cisplatin/ Paclitaxel with neoadjuvant intent).

    Karnofsky index (Score of 0-100 points at intervals of 10)

  3. Quality of life [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    EORTC QLQ-OV28 (Points of every item and final points)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Nutritional State [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
    Body mass index
