Thanks for posting, most interesting. I had the immunotherapy drug avelumab as part of the Javelin 200 trial and had a very good response initially. Regrettably, only for six months before growth. However, I have a different type of ovarian cancer from that mentioned in the article.

Things are progressing in this field.
