Ovarian cancer: beyond resistance

Vol. 527 No. 7529_supp ppS217-S219
  • In this Supplement

  • Ovarian cancer is the seventh most common cancer worldwide and one of the hardest to treat. As this Nature Outline and animation show, this is largely because many tumours develop resistance to first-line treatment: platinum-based chemotherapy. The good news is that experimental therapies in development could help to deliver a knockout blow to the deadly tumours.
