CART-WHEEL rare cancer database is inviting people from all over the world to submit information about their particular tumor so that more research can be done in these understudied rare tumors.
Patients can easily register and fill out the user-friendly online questionnaire which asks them about their tumor type, treatment received and aspects of family history.
Small cell ovarian cancer (SCCO) is a very rare, highly aggressive type of ovarian cancer. Due to its rarity, not much is known about how best to treat it.
CART-WHEEL.org is facilitating an exciting study for this cancer type.
Two collaborating sites, the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) and Van Andel Research Institute (VARI), are studying the molecular/genetic pathways driving small cell ovarian cancer, and hope to translate this information into effective treatments for women with SCCO.
If you are diagnosed with small cell ovarian cancer and want to be part of this important study, please join CART-WHEEL and fill out the online questionnaire. Please provide us with your written consent to contact you and we will be able to connect you with TGen.
