Clinical trials

    Rona's story

    "I would absolutely recommend women to take part in trials if they feel it is right for them. Certainly I was very keen to take part in it because I want to try and increase the different drugs that are available for use with ovarian cancer."

    Find clinical trials for your patients, and keep up to date with research news through our dedicated Clinical Trials Information Centre. Please notify us of new trials by contacting info@targetovariancancer.org.uk

  • Research shows that participation in a clinical trial improves long-term survival, yet only seven per cent of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer enter a clinical trial each year. We believe that all women diagnosed with ovarian cancer should be informed about clinical trials. Find out more in our clinical trials manifesto.

Our guides are an invaluable tool for supporting women at all stages of ovarian cancer. You can use our order form to order printed copies of the guides, to give to the women you work with. All guides are information standard compliant.
