Trial Information

The Elizabeth Registry for Low Grade Ovarian Cancer


The Registry will be an ongoing research registry that will include patients who have been
diagnosed with low grade ovarian, primary peritoneal or fallopian tube or low malignant
potential (LMP) ovarian, primary peritoneal or fallopian tube cancer.

In order to enroll in the Registry, you will be asked to complete a 65 page questionnaire
that contains questions about your ovarian cancer diagnosis, gynecologic history, family
history, general medical history, and health risk factors. This questionnaire will take
about 1 hour to complete.

In addition, researchers will look at your medical record and pathology samples stored at M.
D. Anderson to get information about your surgeries, treatments, disease course, and tumor
grade. If your original surgery was not performed at M. D. Anderson, you may be asked to
provide tumor specimens from that surgery before enrolling in the Registry.

You will be contacted annually by the Registry Coordinator to update your demographic and
health information.

This is an investigational study. The Registry will eventually enroll both M. D. Anderson
and non-M. D. Anderson patients. The number of registrants is unlimited because the Registry
will be ongoing. This study is partially funded by a research grant from the Elizabeth Fund
for the Study of Low Grade Ovarian Carcinoma.
