Overall health

With all of this data in hand, the research team set out to determine what role the overall health of patients played in predicting whether or not treatment would be successful. Most patients that receive treatment for ovarian cancer undergo some kind of tissue removal of the affected area as well as chemotherapy treatment using platinum based drugs. Since the treatment method for ovarian cancer patients is pretty consistent, it is easier to track the effect of overall health in the prognosis of these patients.
