Scientists are researching a process called DNA methylation, specifically in the area of ovarian cancer. This work has implications for understanding how ovarian cancer develops and progresses. Understanding better how and when DNA methylation goes awry may lead to new therapeutic approaches for ovarian cancer treatment. Researchers are working to develop a more sensitive, effective, reliable test for the early diagnosis of ovarian cancer, while studying the factors that influence the development of women's cancers.
