A Snapshot of Endometrial Cancer
Information on trends in incidence, mortality, and NCI funding for endometrial cancer; examples of related NCI initiatives and selected research advances.
Endometrial and acute myeloid leukemia cancer genomes characterized
The characterization of acute myeloid leukemia and endometrial cancer are the latest results of The Cancer Genome Atlas Research Network’s efforts to sequence the genomes of 20 major cancers. The photo above shows technicians from The Genome Institute at Washington University in St. Louis.
Study establishes basis for genomic classification of endometrial cancers; proper categorization is important for choosing the best treatment
A comprehensive genomic analysis of nearly 400 endometrial tumors suggests that certain molecular characteristics – such as the frequency of mutations – could complement current pathology methods and help distinguish between principal types of endometrial tumors, as well as provide insights into potential treatment strategies.
