Oophorectomy clinical trials at UCSF

1 research study open to eligible people

An oophorectomy is a surgery to take out one or both ovaries. At UCSF, we're comparing two such surgeries for those with BRCA1 mutations. The research aims to see which surgery reduces ovarian cancer risk the most.

  • Two Surgical Procedures in Individuals With BRCA1 Mutations to Assess Reduced Risk of Ovarian Cancer

    open to eligible females ages 35-50

    This clinical trial studies how well two surgical procedures (bilateral salpingectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy) work in reducing the risk of ovarian cancer for individuals with BRCA1 mutations. Bilateral salpingectomy involves the surgical removal of fallopian tubes, and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy involves the surgical removal of both the fallopian tubes and ovaries. This study may help doctors determine if the two surgical procedures are nearly the same for ovarian cancer risk reduction for women with BRCA1 mutations.
