If the metastasis is more serious, select platinum-based combined chemotherapy and actively take Chinese medicine for treatment.
3. Targeted therapy for ovarian cancer can be selected. The targets mainly include oncogenes, tumor suppressor genes, and cancer cell surface receptors. Targeting preparations mainly include matrix metalloproteinase inhibitors, polyadenylate diphosphate ribose polymerase inhibitors, CA125 targeting antibodies, and the like.
