Prof. Sehouli Discusses Unmet Needs in Ovarian Cancer

January 08, 2018

Jalid Sehouli, MD, professor, director of the Clinic Campus Virchow and Campus Benjamin Franklin Charité Center Gynecology, Charité – Universitatsmedizin Berlin, discusses the unmet needs for patients with ovarian cancer.

There are many unmet needs, says Sehouli, because patients with ovarian cancer live longer but the cure rate still remains low. Increasing the standard of care could improve patient outcomes since not all patients receive the adequate treatment, explains Sehouli.

Further biomarker development could improve the identification of patients who need a maintenance approach.
