A study of 13,321 women with ovarian cancer diagnosed from 1999 to 2006 in California found only 37% received treatment that conformed to established guidelines. Researchers found 35% of women with advanced disease survived at least five years if their care met the guidelines, compared with 25% of women whose care did not follow the guidelines. The findings were presented at the Society of Gynecologic Oncology meeting.
