Endometrial and acute myeloid leukemia cancer genomes characterizedPosted: May 1, 2013
The characterization of acute myeloid leukemia and endometrial cancer are the latest results of The Cancer Genome Atlas Research Network’s efforts to sequence the genomes of 20 major cancers.
Study establishes basis for genomic classification of endometrial cancers; proper categorization is important for choosing the best treatmentPosted: May 1, 2013
A comprehensive genomic analysis of nearly 400 endometrial tumors suggests that certain molecular characteristics – such as the frequency of mutations – could complement current pathology methods and help distinguish between principal types of endometrial tumors, as well as provide insights into potential treatment strategies.
