Ovarian Cancer 

These NCCN Guidelines Insights focus on the major updates to the 2013 NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines) for Ovarian Cancer by describing how and why the new recommendations were made.

Four topics were selected based on recent important updates in the NCCN Guidelines and debate among panel members about recent clinical trials. The topics include:

  1. intraperitoneal (IP) chemotherapy,
  2. CA-125 monitoring for ovarian cancer recurrence,
  3. surveillance recommendations for less common ovarian histopathologies, and
  4. recent changes in therapy for recurrent epithelial ovarian cancer.

The recently published NCCN Guidelines Insights on Ovarian Cancer discuss other topics, including:

  1. screening,
  2. diagnostic tests for assessing pelvic masses,
  3. primary treatment using neoadjuvant chemotherapy,
  4. primary adjuvant treatment using bevacizumab in combination with chemotherapy,
  5. therapy for recurrent disease (mainly epithelial ovarian cancer), and
  6. management of drug/hypersensitivity reactions.
