Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to try and understand if there is added benefit or increased harm when antioxidant nutritional supplements are added to traditional chemotherapy in the treatment of ovarian cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ovarian Cancer Dietary Supplement: Oral Ascorbic Acid Drug: Paclitaxel Drug: Carboplatin Drug: Sodium Ascorbate Dietary Supplement: Oral Mixed natural Carotenoids with Vitamin A Dietary Supplement: Vitamin E Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

The subjects are randomized to 2 study groups. Group 1 receives standard chemotherapy prescribed by the cancer doctor (carboplatin and paclitaxel)with a possible choice to extend chemotherapy for up to an additional 12 months.

Group 2 receives standard chemotherapy in the same manner as group 1. In addition, they receive 12 months of oral or IV nutritional supplements.
