  • Ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer

Study Name

GOG-0225 Can Diet and Physical Activity Modulate Ovarian, Fallopian Tube and Primary Peritoneal Cancer Progression-Free Survival?


The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether a change in diet and exercise in women with ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer has an effect on the length of time patients are cancer-free following initial treatment. The study will also examine whether the changes in diet and exercise improve overall quality of life and the ability to be physically active.

Half of the participants will follow a diet and physical activity intervention and will receive focused lifestyle coaching. The other participants will continue their usual diet and physical activity and will not be asked to change what they are doing; these women will also receive general lifestyle coaching.
