Khabele D. Differential cyclooxygenase expression levels and survival associations in type I and type II ovarian tumors. Journal of ovarian research. 2018 Feb 27;11(11). 17 p. PMID: 29482584 [PubMed] PMCID: PMC5828488
High cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 expression in ovarian tumors has been associated with poor prognosis, but the role of COX-1 expression and its relation to survival is less clear. Here, we evaluated COX expression and associations with survival outcomes between type I (clear cell, mucinous, low grade endometrioid and low grade serous) and type II (high grade serous and high grade endometrioid) ovarian tumors.
