Innovative Ovarian Cancer Research in the United States
Leading the Charge for Better Ovarian Cancer Research
Ovarian Cancer Institute was established to fund promising new approaches to ovarian cancer research throughout the United States. We seek new approaches to early diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer and emphasize innovative research strategies. We hope to revolutionize the care of ovarian cancer patients through novel approaches not continuously funded by other agencies. These other organizations have categorized these emerging options as “high risk.” OCI wants to help fill this gap in research and development. Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions about our research or would like to donate to our advancement of ovarian cancer research.
Information About Ovarian Cancer in the United States
In the United States alone, there are over 22,000 cases of ovarian cancer diagnosed each year. Since no early screening methods are available, it often comes as quite a shock to patients and their loved ones. Also, diagnosis happens in the much later stages, giving medical teams little to work with in developing substantial treatment plans. Those who receive a diagnosis in Stage 1 have over a 90% chance of survival thanks to early detection. Below are some of the subtle symptoms you can look out for when considering visiting your doctor:
- Cramping Abdominal Pain
- Loss of Appetite
- Urinary & Bowel Discomfort
State-of-the-Art Technology for Ovarian Cancer Research
Technology has always been at the forefront regarding advancing medical research. At OCI, we utilize modern advances in the medical field to conduct and facilitate new research developments. Our hope is to further ovarian cancer research to help with swifter detection and how to treat it better once the cancer has developed. There are many patients all over the United States and beyond who would benefit from this research, and our team dedicates themselves to moving the needle in a positive way for them.
