New hope for ovarian cancer
 
03:33
A decade ago, women diagnosed with ovarian cancer had few options for treatment. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation were standard practice. Those therapies are still in use today, but, thanks to research and new technologies, ovarian cancer patients have additional, and sometimes more effective, options for treatment.

Ovarian Cancer: Progression and Treatment Options
 
04:41
Dr. Matt McDonald discusses the progression of ovarian cancer and how it is treated. Matt McDonald, MD: Unfortunately in this day and age, the majority of ovarian cancers present at the late stage. Statistically 80% of all ovarian cancers present at an advanced stage either stage 3 or 4. Treatment options for those patients usually requires a combination of a surgery and chemotherapy. New advances in ovarian cancer at this point in time really rely upon what we call adjuvant treatment for ovary cancer and what I mean by that is surgery for ovarian cancer as for several, several decades, its main goal is to what we call surgically remove the cancer and what that means is remove all of the macroscopic or all of the disease that we can see or touch at the time of surgery. Many times we can't remove every single piece of cancer that we can see or feel, but the goal is to leave as little a nodule of cancer behind following surgery and what we strive to do is leave any cancer behind that will be smaller than 1 cm that's the goal and from a surgical standpoint that may require removal of parts of the intestinal tract or urinary tract, etc. The surgery's goal is to remove the large pieces of cancer and leave the smallest amount of residual tumor behind as we can and that's what chemotherapy is for. Chemotherapy works better on small implants of cancer than it does on large implants of cancer. For many patients, we are employing something called intraperitoneal chemotherapy which is when a patient receiving chemotherapy receives a combination of some intravenous chemotherapy which is a standard traditional approach and some patients will receive a combination where they also receive intraperitoneal chemotherapy or a lot of patients consider this a belly wash chemotherapy where there is a port implanted in the abdomen where we infuse chemotherapy directly into the abdominal cavity and in patient that can tolerate and be administered intraperitoneal chemotherapy, it has been shown that these patients actually do better and have a longer survival rate. And so on this day and age that's what most of us strive to do is to have an excellent surgical result followed by a combination intravenous and intraperitoneal chemotherapy. The challenge to the medical environment is to catch ovarian cancer at an earlier stage and there are some new blood tests that are doing a better job with that than we did ten years ago. There are some new screening algorithms or triage algorithms for an ovarian mass that help patients get to a trained professional such as GYN oncologist for their initial operation which in this time still is the most important aspect of a woman's care with ovarian cancer is that her initial diagnosis and initial management is performed by a GYN oncologist. Most notably there are some blood tests. One's called the OVA 1, which is a blood test that screens for five different analytes in a woman's blood to help us dictate whether or not an ovarian mass is cancer or not and that test does do a better job than some of the other more traditional approaches that we use. Again another challenge to women that have been found to have an ovarian mass is to definitely seek out the right physician. The good news is a vast majority of an ovarian mass that is seen on CT scan or ultrasound is benign. It is not a cancer, the vast majority of a time. The challenge for a medical team is to weed out who are those cancers and who is not and certainly seek second opinions, seek out GYN oncologists, if you have an ovarian mass for a second opinion or a surgical consultation, because it's important that you get the best preoperative evaluation in the event that it is a cancer that you are taking care of by the right medical professional.

Memorial Sloan Kettering experts discuss the importance of annual Pap smear tests and how cervical cancer is diagnosed. {partial transcript} Can we talk a little bit about cervical cancer? Worldwide it’s significant problem. It’s a bigger problem in this country, thanks to the PAP test. Can you let me know how you see this becoming a real cancer problem as opposed to something that is treated when it’s still in it’s pre-cancerous stage. Fortunately, the pap smear is a very effective tool for the cervix. We have to remember that we are not screening the uterus that sits above it, it’s not testing anything related to the status of the ovaries or fallopian tubes, and it’s truly a screening test for the cervix. The reason it’s such an effective screening tool is because it will pick up abnormal cells of the cervix before they have the opportunity to become invasive cancers.

But other things sometimes grow there, too—including cancerous cells. Endometrial cancer affects more than 635,000 women in the U.S., but there's no standard screening test designed to catch it. "Pap smears don't check for or find endometrial cancer, and most women who get it have normal Paps," says Nita Karnik Lee, MD, associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Chicago Medicine. In order to detect the disease, your doctor would have to order a transvaginal ultrasound or CT scan (along with a biopsy)—which of course isn't standard or advisable unless there's a strong reason to suspect you might have cancer.

Ovarian Cancer After Hysterectomy Is it Possible
 
06:04
Ovarian Cancer After Hysterectomy Is it Possible. Ovarian tumor and hysterectomies. On the off chance that you've had a hysterectomy, you may expect that you can't be determined to have ovarian disease. Much of the time, one or the two ovaries are left set up after a hysterectomy. While having your uterus evacuated diminishes your danger of creating ovarian growth, it is as yet conceivable. Ovarian growth is malignancy that creates from the ovarian cells. The ovaries are the place eggs are created and are the fundamental wellspring of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. Most ovarian diseases begin in the epithelial cells that cover the external surface of the ovary. Growth can likewise create inside the germ cells that deliver eggs or in the hormone-creating stromal cells. A hysterectomy is a surgical technique in which your uterus is expelled. There are various types of hysterectomies: *partial or supracervical hysterectomy: The uterus is expelled however the cervix is left in place. *total or dish hysterectomy: The uterus and the cervix are evacuated. *radical hysterectomy: The uterus and the cervix are expelled alongside the tissue on the two sides of the cervix and the upper piece of the vagina. In these methods, the ovaries are left set up. Sorts of hysterectomies. As per the American Cancer Society (ACS), having a hysterectomy (notwithstanding when the ovaries are left set up) may decrease the shot of ovarian tumor by 33%. Some of the time the Fallopian tubes and the two ovaries are evacuated amid a hysterectomy. This is known as a respective salpingo-oophorectomy or BSO. Without ovaries, your danger of creating ovarian malignancy is lower, yet there's still some hazard. That is on the grounds that ovarian cells can relocate to the perineum, which is the territory between the vagina and butt. On the off chance that this relocation occurred before your ovaries were expelled, those cells stay behind. These staying ovarian cells can wind up destructive simply like the ovaries can. Also, in the event that they do, it is as yet thought to be ovarian malignancy regardless of whether the ovaries are evacuated before the tumor creates. Growth can likewise create from cells in the peritoneum, the tissue covering the mass of your midriff and keeping in mind that this isn't ovarian malignancy it acts similarly as ovarian tumor and is dealt with comparably. What would i be able to do to avoid having ovarian tumor?. A few ladies are hereditarily inclined to create ovarian tumor. All things considered, you may consider taking preventive measures. One choice is to have your ovaries evacuated. At the point when this is done preventively, it's called prophylactic reciprocal oophorectomy. Without ovaries, you can in any case be determined to have ovarian growth, yet your hazard is altogether lower. In the event that you convey BRCA1 or BRCA2 quality transformations, it can decrease your hazard by 80 to 90 percent, as per the Mayo Clinic. Ladies who convey these qualities are likewise at an expanded danger of bosom growth, so expelling the ovaries before menopause can likewise bring down your danger of hormone-positive bosom tumors. What are the side effects of ovarian malignancy?. Regardless of what kind of hysterectomy you have, you should even now have standard examinations. In any case, there's no normal screening test for ovarian malignancy. Indications of ovarian malignancy can appear to be fairly dubious and gentle at first.

The Ultimate Guide to Ovarian Cancer by Dr. Benedict Benigno
 
02:01
Twenty-five thousand American women will get ovarian cancer this year. No screening test exists for this disease, and the symptoms are often vague and mistaken for other illnesses. This cancer is almost always diagnosed in advanced stages, thus requiring extensive surgery and heavy doses of chemotherapy. The recurrence rate is close to 80%, which means most ovarian cancer patients will need additional chemotherapy and sometimes more surgery. In this breakthrough book, Dr. Benedict B. Benigno offers a compassionate, easy-to-understand in-depth look into standard and out-of-the-box ovarian cancer treatments and a thorough examination of the basic science research that will eventually cause a revolution in the way all cancers will be treated. His own patient experiences are interwoven with the stories of survivors who beat the odds. The evolution of a simple, new diagnostic test is described in detail-a test which may prove to be 100% accurate and which may offer women a way to be screened for ovarian cancer when it is at its earliest stage. The cure rate for a stage one ovarian cancer is over 90%! In this book you will: • Learn what symptoms to look for to help diagnose ovarian cancer earlier. • Get clear facts about current modalities of diagnosis and treatment. • Gain an insight from a board certified gynecologic oncologist into new forms of therapy not yet standard of care for ovarian cancer. • Discover how basic science is the key to new ovarian cancer therapy and why molecular biologists will soon replace oncologists. • Find out how advances in genetic research will eradicate many current forms of cancer treatment. The Ultimate Guide to Ovarian Cancer is the one book you want to read if your life has been even remotely touched by ovarian cancer.

British institute develops new cancer screening test
 
01:49
Low cost blood test to detect and assess the efficacy of cancer treatment. Cambridge research institute developed a method that's capable of detecting the most common forms of cancerous cells without surgery or biopsy, making it safer and cheaper. This innovative method is a simple blood test that could identify defective fragment of DNA shed into the bloodstream by cancer cells as they die. The test is being dubbed as a 'liquid biopsy', and it can follow up on the progress of the tumor and its response to the treatment. Tim Forshaw one of the researchers at Cambridge research institute explains that many sensitive tests have been developed to look for one or just a few changes in genes that cause cancer, but what we have been able to do is screen for many of the potential changes, which would not be possible previously. In fact, researchers sequenced 20,000 possible mutations in six cancer-related genes, a technique to read genetic code, to look for genetic faults in the bloodstream and are not picked up by current screening methods. This is the first time entire genes have been analyzed from a blood samples given by 20 women with ovarian cancer. Doctor Mohamed Murtaza a leading researcher at the cancer institute said: this type of blood test has the potential to revolutionize the way cancer diagnosed and treated, adding: as more genetic faults are discovered in different type of cancer, more treatment will be developed to address them. Once we have a catalogue of such faults we could actually screen patients for them just by this simple blood test and potentially address them with one of many drugs. This low cost blood test could play a major role in fighting cancer and in the near future patients could be given treatments based on the results of this quick blood test rather than having a tissue sample surgically removed for analysis.

When doctors treat ovarian cancer patients, they know that at least 20 percent will not respond to standard treatment. A new test designed by a Pittsburgh-based company lets doctors predict which ovarian cancer patients will not benefit from standard treatment, and pick the best combination of drugs to kill the cancer. Allegheny Health Network gynecologic oncologist Dr. Thomas Krivak tells KDKA-TV that each person's cancer has characteristics unique to that person. ChemoFX, designed by South Side-based Precision Therapeutics, lets Dr. Krivak determine which patients will not respond to platinum-based therapy and give them more effective, targeted treatment earlier in the course of this insidious disease.

While the other group means that you won’t get any treatment. Is that the case in cancer? The answer is no. There are different types of clinical trials. The one that Dr. Gomez mentioned is a phase 3 trial. Usually, phase 3 trials are comparing one type of treatment to another. They are designed to forward the standard of care. At the end of the day, the trial will show what one group did or did not do better in terms of survival or cancer recurrence. In the end, that will change the standard of care. The groups are comparing the current standard of care, plus something else. In pediatric cancers sometime it is a little bit minus something else because you are curing so many acute leukemia in kids that you’re trying to decrease the cognitive or growth development changes.

Blood test can detect eight different cancers in their early stages
 
04:54
A liquid biopsy is far less invasive than a standard biopsy, where a needle is put into a solid tumour to confirm a cancer diagnosis. Credit: shutterstock.com Researchers have developed a blood test that can detect the presence of eight common cancers. Called CancerSEEK, the blood test detects tiny amounts of DNA and proteins released into the blood stream from cancer cells. This can then indicate the presence of ovarian, liver, stomach, pancreatic, oesophageal, bowel, lung or breast cancers. Known as a liquid biopsy, the test is distinctly different to a standard biopsy, where a needle is put into a solid tumour to confirm a cancer diagnosis. CancerSEEK, is also far less invasive. It can be performed without even knowing a cancer is present, and therefore allow for early diagnosis and more chance of a cure. The test has been shown to reliably detect early stage and curable cancers. It has also been found to rarely be positive in people who don’t have cancer. This prevents significant anxiety and further invasive tests for those who don’t need them. Several cancers can be screened for at once, and the test can be performed at the same time as routine blood tests, such as a cholesterol check. But the test is still some years away from being used in the clinic. How the test works Often long before causing any symptoms, even very small tumours will begin to release minute amounts of mutated DNA and abnormal proteins into blood. While DNA and proteins are also released from normal cells, the DNA and proteins from cancer cells are unique, containing multiple changes not present in normal cells. The newly developed blood-based cancer DNA test is exquisitely sensitive, accurately detecting one mutated fragment of DNA among 10,000 normal DNA fragments, literally “finding the needle in the haystack”. We used CancerSEEK in just over 1,000 people with different types of early stage cancers. It was shown to accurately detect the cancer, including in 70% or more of pancreas, ovary, liver, stomach and esophageal cancers. For each of these tumour types there are currently no screening tests available – blood based or otherwise. Along with cancer detection, the blood test accurately predicted what type of cancer it was in 83% of cases. Published in the journal Science, the research was led by a team from John Hopkins University, with collaboration from Australian scientists at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute. Why it’s important Steady progress continues to be made in the treatment of advanced cancers, including major gains in life expectancy. But this can come at significant physical and financial cost. Early diagnosis remains the key to avoiding the potentially devastating impact of many cancer treatments and to reducing cancer deaths. However, where there are proven screening tests that lead to earlier diagnosis and better outcomes, such as colonoscopy screening for bowel cancer, these are typically unpleasant. They also have associated risks, only screen for one cancer at a time and population uptake is often poor. And for many major tumour types there are currently no effective screening tests. There are characteristic patterns of mutations and altered proteins that differ among cancer types. So CancerSEEK can not only detect that there is a cancer somewhere in the body but can also suggest where to start looking. For example, if the pattern suggests a bowel cancer, then a colonoscopy is a logical next step. When blood samples were taken from over 800 apparently healthy controls, less than 1% scored a positive test. This means the test is rarely positive for people who don’t have cancer, thereby reducing the problem of overdiagnosis. Overall, these results appear to be in stark contrast to previously developed blood-based tests for cancer screening. Currently the only widely used one of is the prostate specific antigen (PSA) test for prostate cancer. This has multiple limitations and some would argue the jury is still out on whether PSA based testing does more good than harm. What next? Large trials are now underway in the US, with CancerSEEK testing being offered to thousands of healthy people. Cancer incidence and outcomes in these people will be compared to a control group who do not have testing. Study results will be available in the next three to five years.
