The DETECT Study: Discovery and Evaluation of Testing for Endometrial Cancer in Tampons

May 20th, 2022 - BACKGROUND: Endometrial cancer is the most common and second deadliest gynecological cancer in women in the United States, with over 63,000 new cases and 11,000 deaths expected to occur in 2018. Unlike most cancers, endometrial cancer incidence and mortality are increasing, due to increases in risk factors such as obesity and population aging. Racial disparities in endometrial cancer incidence ...

Genome Expression in Lymphoma, Leukemia and Multiple Myeloma

May 20th, 2022 - Current diagnosis of the lymphoid malignancies relies upon the morphological appearance of the cancer cells supplemented by a few molecular markers. Within a diagnostic category, the clinical courses and responses of patients to therapy are variable, suggesting that the existing diagnostic categories may harbor more than one disease entity. Recent genomic technologies allow a comprehensive mole...
