Abstract: Clinicopathological features and chemotherapy can influence the quality of life (QOL), women with ovarian cancer. This study aimed to evaluate the physical and functional well-being, and ovarian cancer-specific effects scores reported from QOL questionnaire among women with ovarian cancer at the time of in their initial diagnosis and access the scores trajectory of women receiving neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy. This prospective study used cross-sectional analysis at baseline and longitudinal analysis from baseline to 12-month post-chemotherapy. QOL was evaluated at the baseline, at sixth cycle and 12-month post-chemotherapy using FACT-O questionnaire. Clinicopathological features and chemotherapy regime were evaluated and tested for associations with QOL measures. Of the 38 women enrolled in this study, 27 (80.1%) completed the questionnaire for 12 months. The multivariate linear regression results suggest, at the baseline, women with advance stage and presence of post-surgery residual disease showed lower scores in physical and functional well-being, ovarian cancer-specific effects, and FACT-O TOI domains (p < 0.05). Longitudinal analysis spanning over 12 months showed an improvement in mean physical well-being, functional well-being, and ovarian cancer-specific effects scores, independent of chemotherapy received (p < 0.05). At the baseline, the clinicopathological features such as stage, presence of post-surgery residual disease, and type of chemotherapy correlated with on QOL scores. At one-year follow-up, women who underwent chemotherapy showed improvement in QOL regardless of the type of chemotherapy they received. Future prospective study with a larger group is recommended
