Diffusion of Intraperitoneal Therapy for Ovarian Cancer

The overall goal of this project is to examine the use of combined intravenous and intra-peritoneal chemotherapy for advanced ovarian cancer in Cancer Research Network (CRN) sites. The study will rely on the use of automated data from the Virtual Data Warehouse (VDW) to track treatment patterns, and will collaborate and coordinate with a parallel National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) study.

The CRN sites involved in this study will: 1) use automated VDW data to identify ovarian cancer cases; 2) collect information on tumor characteristics, stage, and treatment patterns as available; 3) validate these data against a random sample of chart reviews in order to determine the accuracy of our automated data to define stage and treatment patterns before and after the clinical announcement.
