We continue to work toward improving improving outcomes in the treatment of gynecologic cancers by novel and innovative therapies. Our goal is to not only improve survival but also to improve quality of life. Multiple clinical trials involving new, experimental treatments are ongoing in addition to trials using standard therapies in unique schedules and applications to improve outcomes. Currently, we have trials involving novel therapies in ovarian (inluding primary peritoneal and fallopian tube), uterine (endometrial and sarcomas), cervical and vulvar cancer. We continue to study improved surgical techiques with safer, more exact and better recovery in robotic surgeries. Many of the above trials are supported by the NCI, GOG and investigator initated process.
