Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Everolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well everolimus works in treating patients with relapsed or metastatic endometrial cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Endometrial Cancer Drug: everolimus Phase 2

Detailed Description:



  • Estimate the rate of non-progression after 3 months of treatment with everolimus in patients with relapsed or metastatic endometrial cancer.


  • Evaluate the partial and complete response rate after 3 months of treatment with everolimus in these patients.
  • Evaluate the duration of response in these patients.
  • Evaluate the clinical benefit after 6 months of treatment with everolimus in these patients.
  • Evaluate the time to progression in these patients.
  • Evaluate the progression-free and overall survival of these patients.
  • Evaluate the nature, frequency, and severity of side effects of everolimus in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral everolimus daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed monthly for 3 months and then every 3 months thereafter.
