In the present study the Authors have statistically evaluated the influence of the main prognostic factors in 160 women affected by epithelial ovarian cancer. They were sequentially observed at Oncologic Institute of Bari, Italy from december 1981 to december 1989. The prognostic factors (age, stage, grading, histological type, performance status and residual disease), have been evaluted through an actuarial analysis of survival and compared with those reported by many authors in literature. Our data confirm the relevance, among all, of the grading, the clinical stage and residual disease as traditional parameters. Furthermore it is proposable the use of new prognostic factors such as nuclear ploidy and proliferative activity (S-phase, labeling index).
