Ovarian cancer is the seventh most common cancer in women worldwide and 18 most common cancer overall. Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is the leading cause of death in women with gynecological malignancy. Due to inadequate screening tools and a lack of early clinical symptoms, approximately 70% of women with EOC are diagnosed with advanced stage of disease, which is associated with high morbidity and mortality.
