Can Diet and Physical Activity Modulate Ovarian or Primary Peritoneal Cancer Progression-Free Survival?

The purpose of this study is to find out if a change in diet and exercise in women with recurrent ovarian, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer has an effect on the length of time they are cancer free following initial treatment. Results from past studies suggest diet and exercise may improve survival for cancer patients, but to date, no studies have been conducted to show if these changes in diet and exercise can have an effect on cancer returning in women treated for ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer. Other goals include; finding out if changes in diet and exercise will improve both overall quality of life and ability to be physically active. In addition, if patients are one of the first 200 to enter the study, researchers plan to test some blood to measure carotenoid levels. These levels will tell researchers which types of foods patients are eating.
