Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
No intervention(s) will be made, but we will take tumour tissue sample from participants either by biopsy, or use archived formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue from previous surgery, in addition to a blood sample. A single sample of each blood and tumour will be taken at the time of consent. We will perform a comprehensive genetic screen with a next-generation sequencing panel to help us identify changes in the genes and proteins within the cancer. Initially, our work will focus on getting a better understanding of the specific types of changes in ovarian cancer. Over time we hope to use that information to design and implement better treatments for women with ovarian cancer.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 294606 0
Determination of the mutations involved in participants' tumours, compared with germline DNA extracted from blood using a customised next generation sequencing panel screening 30 genes associated with ovarian cancer for primary patient management

six to eight weeks after sample receipt
Secondary outcome [1] 313707 0
Clinical followup information and the genetic data from participants will be studied for patterns of mutations and drug responses by performing data linkage to patient medical records.

Other design features
Upon consenting, participants are assigned a study number. The laboratory technicians undertaking the genetic analysis and the pathologists approving the reports see only this study number and our internal laboratory number. The project manager re-identifies patients for the clinical report generation.

Type of endpoint(s)
Efficacy
Statistical methods / analysis
As this is not a clinical trial involving the conventional test/placebo model, but a study making a novel genetic diagnostic panel available to participants, there are no statistical analyses performed, and there is no minimum number of participants to achieve study objectives.

Summary
Brief summary
This study aims to identify changes in the genes and proteins within the ovarian cancer tissues. Who is it for? You may be eligible to join this study if you are a female aged 18 years or above presenting at Royal Women's Hospital or the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre with recurrent epithelial ovarian cancer (including peritoneal and fallopian tube cancers), regardless of histological subtype. Study details: All participants in this study will be required to undergo a biopsy procedure on a single occasion to obtain a tumour tissue sample, or have archived formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tumour tissue retrieved from pathology laboratory archives. A blood sample will also be drawn. The samples will then be analysed using a next generation sequencing panel targeted to ovarian cancer. Initially, our work will focus on getting a better understanding of the specific types of changes in ovarian cancer. Over time we hope to use that information to design and implement better treatments for women with ovarian cancer. No treatments will be administered as part of this study. This study was designed to enable women with advanced ovarian cancer to be rapidly selected for clinical trials of targeted therapies.
