Summary of "Risk reducing early salpingectomy and delayed oophorectomy as a two staged alternative for primary prevention of ovarian cancer in increased risk women: a commentary."

Ovarian cancer (OC) is the leading cause of death from gynaecological malignancies in the UK. Despite considerable funding to develop new treatments, 10-year survival remains poor at ~30%. This translates into 4,271 deaths annually in the UK, 42,700 in Europe and 152,000 deaths annually worldwide. High (e.g.-BRCA1/BRCA2) and moderate (e.g.-RAD51C/RAD51D/BRIP1) penetrance gene-mutations account for most of the known hereditary-risk of OC. At least 10% of women with epithelial-OC carry these germline mutations. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
