Further study details as provided by Dick Domanik, CytoCore, Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the accuracy potential of the P2X7 (protein and mRNA levels) for the detection of uterine endometrial cancers in women. [ Time Frame: Upon review of the assays. ]

Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: November 2006
Study Completion Date: February 2008
Primary Completion Date: April 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: P2x7 Assay
Compare assay results with biopsy
Other: P2x7 assay
compare P2X7 assay to biopsy

Detailed Description:
The present study aims at developing an accurate, simple and cost-effective method for screening and early detection of uterine cancers in women using novel inventions and biotechnology methods for collection and assay of uterine cells. Results of P2X7 assays using tissues obtained from women with known uterine cancer and from women with histologically normal endometrium will be compared. These data will also serve as basis for future studies to test the predictive value of the method in population-based studies.
