Although progress continues to be made in the treatment of ovarian cancer, making clinical decisions remains a challenge due to the many treatment options available in several different settings. Selective inhibitors of the VEGF/PDGF/FGF pathways have shown activity in patients with ovarian cancer in phase II and III clinical trials either as monotherapy or in combination with other chemotherapy. Community and academic oncologists who treat patients with ovarian cancer need to stay abreast of the latest research that can affect treatment decisions and patient outcomes.
As controversy still exists regarding how and when to incorporate the use of antiangiogenic agents into the treatment paradigm for ovarian cancer patients, this case-based activity developed by expert faculty will provide clinicians with the practical application of new data into community and academic practice settings.
