Decision Resources, Inc., announces the publication of Ovarian Cancer, a new study that evaluates the commercial potential of novel agents to treat this indication. This study presents data on investigational therapies in early- and late-stage development and offers critical strategic analysis to help companies competing in this market to position their products.

We find that monoclonal antibodies constitute a particularly dynamic field of development.
