RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as oxaliplatin, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
- Determine the antitumor activity of oxaliplatin in terms of response rate in patients with persistent or recurrent endometrial carcinoma that is refractory to curative or established therapy.
- Determine the nature and degree of toxicity of this treatment regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive oxaliplatin IV over 2 hours on day 1. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 19-51 patients will be accrued for this study.

The investigators hypothesize that glutamine significantly reduces the incidence and severity of peripheral neuropathy in patients receiving oxaliplatin for metastatic colorectal cancer, d...
Oxaliplatin is a diaminocyclohexane platinum compound, with a mechanism of action similar to that of cisplatin. Oxaliplatin has a more manageable toxicity profile than cisplatin, with no r...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as oxaliplatin, S-1, and capecitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them...
The aim of this study is to compare the activity and safety of Oxaliplatin and S-1 (OS) and Oxaliplatin and Capecitabine (XELOX) in patients with advance or recurrent colorectal cancer.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy such as oxaliplatin use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Bortezomib may stop the growth of cancer cells ...
To evaluate the Risk of Endometrial Cancer (REC) scoring system for the prediction of high and low probability of endometrial cancer (EC) in women with postmenopausal bleeding (PMB).
Evidence on the association between BMI, height, and endometrial cancer risk, including by subtypes, among Asian populations remains limited. We evaluated the impact of BMI and height on the risk of e...
Digestive tract cancer patients treated with oxaliplatin are often associated with the development of peripheral neuropathy. The aim of the present study is to identify the influence of single-nucleot...
Oxaliplatin, a chemotherapeutic agent for colorectal cancer, has been associated with pathological evidence of sinusoidal endothelial injury in the liver. However, esophagogastric varices are a poorly...
Black women with endometrial cancer are more likely to die from their disease compared to white women with endometrial cancer. These survival disparities persist even when disproportionately worse tum...
Neoplasms of the endometrial stroma that sometimes involve the MYOMETRIUM. These tumors contain cells that may closely or remotely resemble the normal stromal cells. Endometrial stromal neoplasms are divided into three categories: (1) benign stromal nodules; (2) low-grade stromal sarcoma, or endolymphatic stromal myosis; and (3) malignant endometrial stromal sarcoma (SARCOMA, ENDOMETRIAL STROMAL).
A hereditary disease characterized by multiple ectodermal, mesodermal, and endodermal nevoid and neoplastic anomalies. Facial trichilemmomas and papillomatous papules of the oral mucosa are the most characteristic lesions. Individuals with this syndrome have a high risk of BREAST CANCER; THYROID CANCER; and ENDOMETRIAL CANCER. This syndrome is associated with mutations in the gene for PTEN PHOSPHATASE.
The extension of endometrial tissue (ENDOMETRIUM) into the MYOMETRIUM. It usually occurs in women in their reproductive years and may result in a diffusely enlarged uterus with ectopic and benign endometrial glands and stroma.
Tumors or cancer of ENDOMETRIUM, the mucous lining of the UTERUS. These neoplasms can be benign or malignant. Their classification and grading are based on the various cell types and the percent of undifferentiated cells.
Benign proliferation of the ENDOMETRIUM in the UTERUS. Endometrial hyperplasia is classified by its cytology and glandular tissue. There are simple, complex (adenomatous without atypia), and atypical hyperplasia representing also the ascending risk of becoming malignant.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
