Hormonal therapy with a levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine device (LNG-IUD) led to a high pathological complete response (pCR) rate in women with early-stage endometrial cancer, according to the feMMe trial presented at SGO 2021 Meeting.
In patients with advanced endometrial cancer with prior platinum chemotherapy exposure, a combination of lenvatinib + pembrolizumab improved survival compared with physician’s choice of treatment (TPC), results of the phase III Study 309/KEYNOTE-775 trial showed.
The addition of radiation therapy to chemotherapy does not provide a relapse-free survival (RFS) advantage over chemotherapy only in stage III or IVA endometrial cancer, according to the phase III GOG 258* trial.
Use of tamoxifen does not appear to increase the risk of endometrial cancer in women with endometrial polyps, a study has found. Risk factors include abnormal uterine bleeding, older age and nulliparous status.
Use of standard-dose aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) appears to confer protection against the risk of endometrial cancer in overweight and obese women, according to a meta-analysis.
