Endometrial cancer is the most common cancer of the female reproductive tract and the fourth most common cancer overall in women, accounting for an estimated 43,470 new cases and 7,950 deaths in the United States in 2010. [1] Recurrent and advanced endometrial cancer remains a treatment dilemma. However, patients diagnosed with advanced disease continue to have a dismal prognosis with a 17% 5-year survival [2].
