Endometrium and Metabolism

What is the purpose of this trial?

We are investigating the effect of metabolism on endometrial growth and its possible role in abnormal proliferation of the endometrium. There are concerns that cancer cells are able to use the body’s metabolic pathways to their advantage, and we are hoping to understand this process better. Eligible women are invited to participate, and we explain the study, potential risks, and benefits. Women who choose to join the study participate in metabolic tests and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as well as donate a small piece of their endometrial tissue. We compare results between women who are diagnosed with endometrial cancer or hyperplasia, and women who have benign endometrium.
