Study Eligibility

Eligible studies are those that include either:


  1. At least 200 cases of ovarian cancer and 200 controls, with DNA samples available for genotyping. The controls must be broadly from the same population as the cases. Cases may be selected by age or family history.
  2. At least 200 invasive cases with follow-up and data on overall survival.


Studies are considered to be participants in OCAC when they have taken part in an OCAC genotyping and contributed genotype or covariate data to the OCAC database. Attendance at an initial meeting is at own expense.


Ideally, the case-control sets will have phenotypic and epidemiological covariate data listed in the core variable list. Studies with more limited data may also be acceptable (e.g. those with limited data for controls): Core Epi Variable Data Dictionary (May 2012)

If you are interested in participating in OCAC, please see contact details.
