So much information is available on the Internet. When you search ‘carcinosarcoma’ or ‘ovarian or uterine carcinosarcoma,’ there is an overwhelming amount of information. I have found it difficult to access what is relevant, so I asked Dr. Birrer to provide carcinosarcoma resources on the latest research.
This page and the blog will be updated as more research is published and more information becomes available.
