Tumour suppressor genes in sporadic epithelial ovarian cancer

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

Ovarian cancer is the most frequent cause of death from gynaecological malignancies in the western world, and sporadic epithelial ovarian cancer is its most predominant form. The aetiology of sporadic ovarian cancer remains unknown. Genetic studies have enabled a better understanding of the evolution of tumour progression. A major focus of research has been to identify tumour suppressor genes implicated in sporadic ovarian cancer over the past decade. Several tumour suppressor genes have been identified by strategies such as positional cloning and differential expression display. Further research is warranted to understand fully their contribution to the pathogenesis of sporadic ovarian cancer.
