10/19/2005 5:12:49 PM

BALTIMORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 23, 2005-- Baltimore Researchers Seeking New Standard of Care for Advanced Ovarian Cancer For the majority of patients with advanced ovarian cancer, the current standard of care and front-line treatments - surgery and chemotherapy - are not enough to control the high recurrence rate. Researchers at the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Cancer Institute at Franklin Square are further evaluating OvaRex(R) MAb (oregovomab), an investigational therapy, to determine the extent of remission in patients who have a favorable response to surgery and chemotherapy. They are also assessing survival, quality of life, immune response, and safety. Women with stage III or IV ovarian cancer, who qualify to participate in the ongoing clinical research, must begin taking the study medication within four to 12-weeks of completing their last dose of initial chemotherapy.
