  Purpose

Currently available treatments for endometrial cancer are associated with limited efficacy and significant toxicity. This study will assess the safety and efficacy of letrozole, an aromatase inhibitor, on endometrial cancer.


Condition Intervention Phase
Recurrent and Metastatic Endometrial Cancer
Drug: Letrozole
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A PHASE II STUDY OF LETROZOLE IN PATIENTS WITH ADVANCED OR RECURRENT ENDOMETRIAL CANCER

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Response rates (complete response, partial response, no change, progressive disease) measured by tumor marker assessments and radiologic imaging at week 12 then every 12 weeks x 1 year followed by every 16 weeks

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Duration of clinical response, time to progression of the disease, correlation of tumor response with pretreatment ER/PR status, histological grade and aromatase levels

Enrollment: 36
Study Start Date: January 2000
Primary Completion Date: June 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
