Detailed Description:



  • To validate the clinicopathologic associations and prognostic significance of ATR mutation in endometrioid endometrial cancer cases with defective DNA mismatch repair.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

DNA extracted from previously collected tumor samples is analyzed to validate the clinicopathologic associations and prognostic significance of ATR mutation.


Genders Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No


  • Women who were eligible and evaluable for the GOG-0210 molecular staging protocol in women with endometrial cancer

    • Women who were registered during the unrestricted enrollment period (through 9/23/07) will automatically qualify
    • Women who were registered during the restricted enrollment period (after 9/23/07) will only be considered if needed
  • Women who had histologically confirmed endometrioid endometrial adenocarcinoma regardless of stage or grade
  • Women who have defective DNA mismatch repair and are microsatellite instability positive (MSI+ and MSI-low)
  • Women who consented to allow their specimens and clinical data to be used for future cancer research
  • Women who have sufficient high-quality genomic DNA from tumor available for mutation analysis of ATR
