Treatment Clinical Trials for Uterine Sarcoma
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are for uterine sarcoma treatment. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.
NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.
Olaparib and Temozolomide in Treating Patients with Advanced, Metastatic, or Unresectable Uterine Leiomyosarcoma
This phase II trial studies olaparib and temozolomide in treating patients with uterine leiomyosarcoma (LMS) that has spread to other places in the body (advanced or metastatic) or cannot be removed by surgery (unreserctable). Olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving olaparib and temozolomide may work better than giving either drug alone in treating patients with LMS.

Nivolumab in Treating Patients with Metastatic or Recurrent Uterine Cancer
This phase II trial studies how well nivolumab works in treating patients with uterine cancer that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic) or come back after a period of improvement (recurrent). Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as nivolumab, may help the body’s immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread.

Short Course Vaginal Cuff Brachytherapy in Treating Patients with Stage I-II Endometrial Cancer
This randomized phase III trial studies short course vaginal cuff brachytherapy to see how well it works compared with standard of care vaginal cuff brachytherapy in treating patients with stage I-II endometrial cancer. Short course vaginal cuff brachytherapy, also known as internal radiation therapy, uses (over a shorter period) radioactive material placed directly into or near a tumor in the upper portion of the vagina to kill tumor cells.
