The need of foreseeing the prognosis of ovarian cancer beyond the limits of classical methods based on clinical and histopathological staging has recently caused great interest in a large number of biologic prognostıc markers. Studies concern proliferation associated proteins, suppressor genes, abnormal expressions of growth factors, cytokins and many more. Here some of the most recent and promising factors being studied are described together with their significance for future clinical application.
