Despite advances in the management of epithelial ovarian cancer, it remains the most lethal of gynecological malignancies in the UK. Ovarian cancer is a complex disease, both in its molecular and clinical behavior. Targeted therapies have yet to show an improvement in five-year survival when added to standard cytotoxic chemotherapy.
