Personalized Genetic Medicine to Prevent Invasive Uterine Cancer and Unnecessary Hysterectomies
The purpose of the study is to learn if molecular testing of endometrial biopsies from women diagnosed with pre-invasive complex “hyperplasia” can show who will or will not respond to progestin treatment with placement of the Levonorgestrel Intrauterine Device (LNG IUD).
There is no way to differentiate cases of endometrial hyperplasia that will or will not respond to progestin treatment. If this test is proven to be useful, it may prevent unnecessary hysterectomies in women without the genetic markers, and expedite definitive treatment in women who will not respond to progestins and should have a hysterectomy.
