Study Description

Study Looking at Biomarkers in Ovarian Cancer

This is a sample study that will collect biological samples (blood, tumor tissue, ascites, and/or other fluids) from gynecological cancer patients for biomarker research. In addition, the results of the testing done on the samples will be given to the participant's treating physician who may use the information to guide treatment decisions.

Procedure - Tumour tissue collection

Tumour tissue will be taken from samples already removed from surgery or biopsy or by new tumour biopsies: At the time of diagnosis or progression Any surgical procedures for management of tumour related medical conditions At each subsequent relapse or disease progression

Procedure - Blood sample collection

Blood samples will be taken: At the time of first diagnosis About 1 week after starting any treatment At each radiological response assessment At each subsequent relapse or disease progression

Procedure - Ascites Collection

Ascites will be collected if paracentesis is required during any of the following time points: At the time of diagnosis or progression Any surgical procedures for management of tumour related medical conditions At each subsequent relapse or disease progression

Procedure - Fluid Collection

Additional fluid will be collected at any time a procedure for clinical management that involves the drainage of fluid (i.e. thoracentesis, or drainage of cystic lesion) is required.
