CGB investigators are studying the etiologic heterogeneity of ovarian cancers and the roles that inflammation and endogenous hormones play in carcinogenesis. They have also been testing novel sampling strategies for collecting endometrial samples. Selected studies include:
A feasibility study to assess the use of alternative sampling techniques and molecular assays to detect endometrial and ovarian cancer
A study to investigate the association of risk factors with molecular changes in the ovaries and endometrium
A case-control study nested within a retrospective cohort of women diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia
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).
