All women and all cancers are different. As a result, there are many different therapies for ovarian cancer. Since individuals have different genetics, health histories, diets, habits, and allergies, people may react differently to available therapies. For example, women with kidney or liver disease may be less able to tolerate the standard first-line therapy for ovarian cancer. Alternate therapies may be needed to ensure safety. Since each person’s cancer is as unique as they are, not all cancer responds to the standard therapy.
