Potential for earlier diagnosis of ovarian cancer

Researchers have identified biochemical changes that commonly occur in the DNA of women with ovarian cancer, which may help diagnose the cancer at an earlier stage in the future.

Using whole genome DNA profiling methods, the scientists have identified a panel of six genes that are affected by an epigenetic process known as “DNA methylation” in ovarian cancer.

The findings are published in the journal Cancer Letters.
