Ovarian Cancer Clinical Trial
Short Term Aspirin on the Biologic and Immunologic Changes of the Fallopian Tube
This study will evaluate the impact of low dose aspirin on normal fallopian tube fimbriae in women who have surgery to have their fallopian tubes removed. Participants will take a low dose of aspirin for 2 weeks before their surgery. A portion of the removed fallopian tubes will also be collected for future research and routine pathology purposes.
Subjects in this study will receive low dose aspirin for 14 days before undergoing surgery to remove fallopian tubes removed to determine whether aspirin decreases inflammation in the fallopian tube. Subjects will also submit blood samples at their initial visit with their oncologist, at the time of surgery and at the pre-operative visit to measure inflammation markers and blood counts. A portion of the subject's fallopian tube will be collected for future research studies.
