Patient Video - Alicia’s story: How did genetic and biomarker testing impact your options for ovarian cancer clinical trials?
Alicia describes how genetic and biomarker testing has significantly impacted the treatment of her ovarian cancer because the results have opened doors for clinical trial participation. She qualified for a clinical trial focused on BRCA-negative, HRD-positive patients. Alicia shares that her ongoing experience in the trial has been great and that she has a lot of confidence in it, as her cancer has not recurred in 4 years.
