I had my surgery at Mayo Rochester within the last year. Stage IIIC. Were my cells preserved so I am eligible for the Avatar study…or is it too late entirely?

If you enrolled in Mayo’s tissue/blood repository for ovarian cancer when you had your surgery, a portion of your tumor was retained for research purposes. The contact person and phone number for more information is on your informed consent form. You can also contact the study coordinator through Mayo’s Cancer Center Clinical Trial Office at 855-776-0015 (toll-free) or at http://www.mayo.edu/research/clinical-trials.

If you signed consent in 2014 or 2015, we are working hard to include as many patients as possible. If everything works out as I hope, someone may contact you about the Ovatar trial if certain criteria are met.
