Register Your DNA

Thank you for your interest in helping to save the lives of women everywhere through continued and needed ovarian cancer research. If you meet the criteria below, we strongly encourage you to register for the Familial Ovarian Cancer Registry by filling out our short pre-screen form questionnaire.

Typical Eligibility Criteria:

  • A family history of two or more cases of ovarian cancer.
  • A family history of three or more cases of cancer on the same side of your family with at least one being ovarian cancer.
  • A family history of three or more cases of cancer on the same side of your family with at least one being ovarian cancer.
  • A family history of at least one female with two or more primary cancers with one of the primaries being ovarian cancer.
  • A family history of two or more cases of cancer with at least one being ovarian cancer diagnosed at an early age of onset (45 years old or younger).

Because everyone’s medical and family history is different, your answers will allow us to review your particular case and family background to determine if your DNA and family history profile will be a match for our Registry’s goals. After submitting your pre-screening form and our staff determines you are a good candidate for inclusion in the registry, you will be asked to complete a family history questionnaire and sign a consent document. From there, we will work with you and your doctors to obtain a blood sample.

*Ovarian cancers include cancers of the ovaries, omentum, fallopian tubes and primary peritoneal area.
