OTTA is conducting two types of large-scale research projects.
Collections of archival ovarian tumor tissue are arrayed and centralized to allow for staining of key candidate biomarkers. Biomarker data are then evaluated with respect to ovarian cancer histotype and clinical outcomes.
Gene expression platforms have been custom designed for targeted testing in tumor RNA samples. This work is also done in a centralized manner and enables evaluation of ovarian cancer histotype and clinical outcome.
