Help us validate an early detection test for ovarian cancer

UNSW Sydney is partnering with CAMILLA AND MARC through the ‘Ovaries. Talk About Them.’ campaign to support the validation of an early detection test for ovarian cancer. Unlike other cancers, there is no early detection test for ovarian cancer. 75% of ovarian cancer is diagnosed at stage III or IV. In 2019, 1,613 new cases of ovarian cancer will be diagnosed; and 1,069 women will die.

 

At UNSW, we have developed a test that will change how ovarian cancer is diagnosed and if successful will result in tumours being diagnosed before they have spread, meaning they can be entirely removed by surgery, with no further treatment required.

 

Your gift will make a direct impact on research and educational support for our cancer scientists and health professionals to improve the lives of those impacted by cancer. By supporting ovarian cancer research at UNSW, you will be helping us to validate an early detection test and save lives.

A/Prof Caroline Ford leads the Gynaecological Cancer Research Group which aims to understand why gynaecological cancers develop, how and why they spread throughout the body, and how best to treat them.

 

“Gynaecological cancer” encompasses all cancers of the female reproductive system, though current research focuses on ovarian and endometrial cancer.

 

UNSW is committed to making cancers with poor outcomes our priority. We’re seeking better ways to find, treat and manage these cancers, paying special attention to the advanced stages of disease.
