In this webinar Ovacome will be joined by Professor Gordon Jayson BM, BA, Bch, FRCP, PhD, Professor of Medical Oncology at the Christie and University of Manchester.

Professor Jayson will be discussing the use of anti-angiogenic (anti-blood vessel) agents such as bevacizumab (Avastin) in treating ovarian cancer. He will be looking at the effectiveness of these drugs in the first line setting, as well as in the treatment of both platinum-sensitive and platinum-resistant recurrent disease.

Professor Jayson will give information about the new VALTIVE1 study, which is trialling a blood test that will tell doctors and patients early on whether bevacizumab (Avastin) is working. This can then inform further decisions about the right treatment for each individual.

The VALTIVE1 trial is currently recruiting. This Ovacome talk will provide an opportunity for you to ask Professor Jayson questions about the trial and about the use of anti-angiogenic treatments more generally.

Join this session to find out more about rarer ovarian cancer subtypes and to ask any questions that you might about this topic.
