The article discusses research being done on the expression of the ERCC5 gene. It references a study published in the 2008 issue of the "Journal of Clinical Oncology." Study researchers conducted a whole-genome analysis in patients with ovarian cancer, who received cytoreductive surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy with platinum-based regimen. They found that ERCC5 gene expression can be a possible biomarker in ovarian cancer.
