BACKGROUND To improve the outcome of endometrial cancer patients, a more accurate prognostic assessment is mandatory. The aims of the study were to evaluate the role of flow cytometric DNA ploidy as an independent prognostic factor in patients with endometrial cancer and to verify if ploidy was able to distinguish patients with different prognosis into homogeneous subgroups for grade of differentiation and stage. METHODS In a prospective study, DNA ploidy was evaluated from fresh tumor… CONTINUE READING
