: MY MOTHER GOES FOR A CATSCAN AND BLOOD WORK THIS MONTH TO SEE IF HER OVARIAN CANCER IS STILL IN REMISSION.
: IF NOT, WHAT SHOULD WE DO? DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT CHEMO AND/OR CLINICAL TRIALS WILL WORK THE BEST?topotecan is the newest state of the art chemo drug recently approved for ovarian cancer. if she isn't in remission, and hasn't tried that yet ask her doc. any doc should have acess to that. if you have approved drugs you still can use they have an advantage as they have proven to be somewhat effective, as the clinical drugs are still in question. if you have used this already there are lotts of trials for ovarian cancer.
