DCEG researchers conduct studies on cancers of the endometrium and uterus, known as endometrial and uterine cancer. Endometrial cancer forms in the tissue lining the uterus, and most endometrial cancers are adenocarcinomas. Selected studies include:
A feasibility study to assess the use of alternative sampling techniques and molecular assays to detect endometrial and ovarian cancer
A case-control study nested within a retrospective cohort of women diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia
Retrospective cohort studies of women treated for infertility with ovulation-stimulating drugs to evaluate risk of breast and gynecologic cancers
A study to investigate the association of risk factors with molecular changes in the ovaries and endometrium
A study of common inherited variation associated with risk of ovarian cancer, carried out using data and biospeciments from a population-based case-control study of ovarian and endometrial cancer conducted among female residents of Warsaw and Lodz (Poland).
A nested case-control study of endometrial and ovarian cancers assessing the roles of estrogens, estrogen metabolites, androgens, and androgen metabolites in the etiologies of these cancers
