Mortality in patients with SEOC is frequently due to the effects of disseminated abdominal disease on vital organs such as the gastrointestinal tract and is secondary to distant metastasis. The latter may be present at the time of diagnosis (stage IV disease) or can arise following relapse. The GEM models described here not only recapitulate intraperitoneal spreading from a primary ovarian tumor but also the most common sites of distant metastases found in humans: pleura, lung, and liver (26). Human ovarian tumors harboring mutations in both p53 alleles were more likely associated with high-grade SEOC, lymph node metastasis, and the development of distant metastasis (41). In agreement with these data, the progression to stage III/IV SEOC pathology in the GEM models was dependent on biallelic mutation/inactivation of p53. While there was no obvious difference between complete loss or stabilization of mutant p53, future studies will explore  whether   any   difference   in  ethiology   or   response  to  therapy  results  from
