A woman with no previous genetic disposition to developing cancerous tumors was diagnosed with malignant cancer in her gynecological tissue, causing her to sue the manufacturers of a talcum powder product, alleging the talc was the only possible explanation to her development in cancer in light of her genetic profile. The opinion of a gynecologic oncologist who had previously done research or published in the field of fallopian tube carcinoma was sought to expound on the potentiality of talc as a precursor for ovarian cancer.

Question(s) For Expert Witness

Expert Witness Response E-081079

I routinely treat patients with ovarian or fallopian tube cancer. I am a gynecologic oncologist at an academic university. I have also done research on fallopian tube cancer. Specifically, I have published my research on identifying p53 mutations in vaginal samples of women with ovarian and fallopian tube cancer as a possible screening test. I have also written a review article regarding the fallopian tube in the origin of ovarian cancer.
