Diagnostics & Management


Ovarian cancer is among the most deadly cancer types. Diagnosis is commonly made at later stages where treatment options are limited, leading to a 5-year survival rate of only 28%. AOA’s innovative test offers the promise of earlier detection of Ovarian cancer when symptoms first present, and early detection saves lives. As an impact investment, CANCER FUND sees AOA Dx as a potential breakthrough in improving early cancer detection and opening up more effective treatment options for patients.
