Brief Summary:
This study will evaluate the impact of low dose aspirin on normal fallopian tube fimbriae in women who have surgery to have their fallopian tubes removed. Participants will take a low dose of aspirin for 2 weeks before their surgery. A portion of the removed fallopian tubes will also be collected for future research and routine pathology purposes.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Fallopian Tube Cancer Fallopian Tube Infection Drug: Aspirin 81 mg Early Phase 1

Detailed Description:
Subjects in this study will receive low dose aspirin for 14 days before undergoing surgery to remove fallopian tubes removed to determine whether aspirin decreases inflammation in the fallopian tube. Subjects will also submit blood samples at their initial visit with their oncologist, at the time of surgery and at the pre-operative visit to measure inflammation markers and blood counts. A portion of the subject's fallopian tube will be collected for future research studies.

Drug Information available for: Aspirin

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Aspirin
Subjects will take 81mg tablets of aspirin daily for 14 days prior to surgery for removal of fallopian tubes.
Drug: Aspirin 81 mg
Subjects will take aspirin daily for 14 days leading up to surgery to determine whether it impacts inflammation of fallopian tubes.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of subjects who exhibited alterations in the fallopian tube immune microenvironment [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Immuno-cellular assays and percentages of specific immune cells will be compared to control tissue samples.

  2. Number of subjects who exhibited less carcinogenic potential than control specimens [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Ciliate cells from specimens will be isolated and the number of colony forming units will be compared to control samples.

  3. Number of subjects who exhibited changes in transcriptome profile compared to control specimens [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    Normal fallopian tube fibria will be compared to ovarian cancer specimens to identify novel biomarkers for diagnosis, targets for prevention and better treatment strategies.
