Molecular markers in epithelial ovarian cancer: paving the way to innovative therapies

Given the remarkable heterogeneity of ovarian cancer, both at the clinical and the molecular level, a main challenge is to identify prognostic and predictive factors which will aid in selecting those patients that are most likely to benefit from particular (targeted) therapies. In addition, the discovery of genes and pathways that influence disease outcome may reveal novel therapeutic targets. In this thesis, molecular markers associated with response to chemotherapy and prognosis of epithelial ovarian cancer patients were investigated.
