A clinical trial of a study medicine for people with advanced ovarian cancer
The C4161001 study is researching whether a study medicine is safe and effective in the treatment of advanced ovarian cancer.
Unfortunately, current treatment options are limited and may not work for everyone. Doctors are working to find better treatment options for people living with advanced ovarian cancer.
Who may participate
Each clinical study has its own guidelines for who can participate, called eligibility criteria. However, only the research study staff can determine if you qualify to enroll in the study.
What to expect
Phone calls to check in every 2 months
Some studies require the study team to stay in contact with the participant for a period of time after the participant completes the main part of the study. This long-term follow up is to collect additional information on the study drug over time.
