Study establishes basis for genomic classification of endometrial cancers

by admin on May 1, 2013

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. In addition, the study, led by investigators in The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Research Network, revealed four novel tumor subtypes, while also identifying genomic similarities between endometrial and other types of cancers, including breast, ovarian, and colorectal cancers.
