A study published this week in PLOS Medicine suggests that epigenetic modification of the HAND2 gene plays a critical role in the development of endometrial cancer. HAND2 is active in the healthy endometrium (the tissue lining the uterus) where it antagonizes the growth-inducing effects of estrogen.

Discovery Lab team and collaborators at UCLA. Like tumors of the breast and prostate, endometrial cancer is regulated by hormones. Unlike therapies for breast and prostate cancer, where drugs are given to block hormone signaling, in...

Diaz-Arrastia, director of gynecologic oncology and associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at BCM. When caught in the early stages, endometrial...
