Dr. David Samadi, prostate cancer expert, discusses the new drug, Avastin, for treatment of ovarian cancer. The non-FDA-approved medication has shown effective in delaying ovarian cancer tumor progression by 3 months, though it does not provide any major survival benefit. Dr. Samadi explains the high risk nature of ovarian cancer, a very aggressive cancer that spreads quickly and is difficult to diagnose. Like some other cancer drugs, such as Provenge for prostate cancer, Avastin is very costly and the side effects are unknown. Avastin was denied FDA approval for breast cancer treatment in 2011.
