Gynecologic Cancers

In this interview we discuss a joint statement from MD Anderson and 68 other NCI-designated cancer centers that calls for increased HPV vaccination for the prevention of cancer.

Low-grade serous ovarian cancer is a rare, slow-growing cancer that is generally resistant to cytotoxic chemotherapy. In the upfront setting, treatment recommendations mimic those of high-grade serous ovarian cancer.

Elevated levels of neopterin were found to be significantly associated with poorer survival outcomes in patients with ovarian cancer.

A small study has found an increased risk for serous or serous-like endometrial carcinoma among women with BRCA1 mutations after undergoing risk-reducing salpingo-oophorectomy without hysterectomy.

A large, prospective analysis showed that risk factors for ovarian cancer demonstrate substantial heterogeneity in their associations with histologic subtypes of the disease.

Researchers were able to molecularly classify endometrial cancers with distinct survival differences using a new classification tool called ProMisE that uses clinically applicable methods.

A concurrent chemotherapy and radiotherapy regimen with cisplatin and paclitaxel yielded a good response rate and strong long-term survival outcomes in patients with locally advanced or recurrent cervical cancer.
