Molecular Classification and Risk Stratification Endometrial Cancer” with Jenny Mueller and Bill Zammarrelli

In this rebroadcast episode of the IJGC podcast, Editor-in-Chief Dr. Pedro Ramirez is joined by Drs. Jenny Mueller and Bill Zammarrelli to discuss molecular classification and risk stratification in endometrial cancer. Jenny Mueller, MD, is a gynecologic oncologist and assistant attending in the department of surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She leads the endometrial cancer research team at MSKCC with an emphasis on prospective, translational, and collaborative efforts within and across institutions. Bill Zammarrelli, MD, currently works as a gynecologic oncology fellow at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. He is a commissioned officer in the US Army and completed his residency at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. His current research focuses on the genetics of endometrial cancer.    Highlights: --PORTEC-1 and GOG-99 risk classifications are discordant for stage I grade 3 endometrioid endometrial carcinoma (EEC). --Stage I grade 3 EECs of CN-high molecular subtype have a worse 3-year progression-free survival compared to non-CN-high molecular subtypes. --Molecular classification in combination with clinicopathologic factors may provide improved prognostic information.
