We engaged in a number of major activities to achieve our goals. First, we obtained IRB approval and began building relevant data sets. Second, we began conducting statistical analyses and writing up the findings for three pre-specified hypotheses using existing data testing whether PTSD is associated with 1 higher risk of ovarian cancer development, 2 diet low in flavonoid and poor in quality, and 3 HT use. Third, we identified and selected samples on which to obtain novel biomarker assays, and sent these samples to the laboratory to be assayed. Fourth, we began cleaning the data and identifying and analyzing information on existing biomarkers. Details on these major activities are summarized in the annual progress report.
