PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying fulvestrant to see how well it works in treating patients with recurrent, persistent, or metastatic endometrial cancer.
- Compare the probability of clinical response in estrogen receptor (ER)-positive vs ER-negative patients with recurrent, persistent, or metastatic endometrial cancer treated with fulvestrant.
- Compare the relationship between response rate and intensity of receptor expression in patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the frequency and intensity of toxicity of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive fulvestrant intramuscularly on day 1. Treatment repeats every 28 days for at least 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.

The purpose of this study is to find out what effect the combination of fulvestrant (Faslodex) and dasatinib (Sprycel) has on advanced breast cancer compared to fulvestrant alone.
The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of the combination of abemaciclib and fulvestrant in treating this type of cancer and to determine the types and severity of sid...
This is a randomized two arm phase II study to further evaluate the efficacy of fulvestrant plus enza compared to single agent fulvestrant in postmenopausal women with locally advanced AR+...
The clinical efficacy of fulvestrant and/or palbociclib in the population of patients with metastatic lesions harboring ESR1 mutations was reported. In the PALOMA 3 study, the combination ...
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...
Increasing evidence has shown that the dysregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) is associated with drug resistance. Fulvestrant and tamoxifen represent the major endocrine drugs for the treatment of breast...
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...
Buparlisib plus fulvestrant versus placebo plus fulvestrant for postmenopausal, hormone receptor-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative, advanced breast cancer: Overall survival results from BELLE-2.
Buparlisib, a pan-phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) inhibitor, plus fulvestrant in the BELLE-2 study significantly improved progression-free survival (PFS) in patients with hormone receptor-positiv...
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.
