National Institutes of Health (NIH) Researchers Identify Novel Genes That May Drive Rare, Aggressive Form of Uterine Cancer


10/29/2012 7:42:46 AM

Researchers have identified several genes that are linked to one of the most lethal forms of uterine cancer, serous endometrial cancer. The researchers describe how three of the genes found in the study are frequently altered in the disease, suggesting that the genes drive the development of tumors. The findings appear in the Oct. 28, 2012, advance online issue of Nature Genetics. The team was led by researchers from the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), part of the National Institutes of Health.
