Cytotoxicity of Hypo-osmolar Lavage Fluid on Ovarian Cancer Cells In vitro

Abstract

Objective: Ovarian cancer is difficult to diagnose early and many patients present with advanced disease. The presence of exfoliated ovarian cancer cells in the peritoneal cavity after debulking surgery is a poor prognostic indicator. Sterilization of the peritoneum during surgery may have clinical benefit in reducing tumor burden. Several studies have… (More)
