Study Review

The purpose of this study was to identify genes that may contribute to the effect that chemotherapy has on a woman’s ovaries. The researchers wanted to enroll up to 5,000 volunteers from the Army of Women (AOW) from anywhere in the U.S. The Call to Action for this study was sent to AOW members on December 16, 2015. The researchers closed enrollment on March 14, 2017, after the AOW provided them with 882 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
