Ovarian Cancer Antibodies

Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancers are a relatively rare diagnosed cancer in the United States, with about 1.3% of new cancer cases classified as ovarian yet contributing 2.4% of cancer deaths yearly. As of 2011, there were approximately 189,000 women living with ovarian cancer in the United States. Those diagnosed with ovarian cancer have a 5 year survival rate of 44.6%. Over the last 10 years, both the new cancer case rate and the death rate have dropped 1.1% and 2.0% per year, respectively. Biocare Medical is proud to offer key ovarian antibodies that may aid in the identification of their respective proteins by IHC in FFPE tissues.
