About the research
Every 3 minutes, a woman dies of ovarian cancer somewhere in the world. "Ovarian cancer is very sneaky. Most of the patients respond positively to the therapies initially provided to them and it appears that the cancer is gone. But eventually, the cancer comes back and is much more aggressive. As a result one in two ovarian cancer patients die within 5 years after diagnosis." But what if we were able to treat ovarian cancer with a new therapy using our cells? That's what Aarushi Caro (VUB - KU Leuven - FWO) and her colleagues are hoping to achieve.
