In the United States there are over 40000 new endometrial cancers detected annually. Fortunately many of these women will survive past 5years following standard treatments of surgery and surgery combined with radiation or chemotherapy. However, about 8000 women are not as fortunate and will succumb to their disease despite good clinical care. Data from our lab and others has documented that endometrial cancers may share some similarities or molecular signatures with the traditional pathologic and clinical definitions of these tumors. However, these cancers are in reality quite individual, and those certain cancers that follow an aggressive clinical course are likely the result of underlying molecular changes that account for these cancers behaviors.
