Low-dose oral contraceptives are as protective against ovarian cancer as are older, high-dose pills, find University of Pittsburgh researchers
Low-dose contraceptives currently on the market are just as effective as the older, high-dose preparations in protecting women from ovarian cancer, according to investigators from the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health (GSPH) in a paper published in the August 1 issue of the American Journal of Epidemiology.
