Ovarian cancer clinical trials are carefully designed research studies that utilize volunteers to evaluate new treatment options. Researchers carry out ovarian cancer clinical trials to discover ways of improving medical care and treatment for those who have the disease. The purpose of a clinical trial is to determine whether a treatment option is safe and effective. A clinical trial may study new ways to prevent, diagnose and/or treat ovarian cancer.
