- Uterine serous carcinoma (USC) is an aggressive subtype of endometrial cancer. Multimodality treatment with surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy is commonly used, given its propensity for extrauterine spread, distant recurrences, and poor prognosis. However, the use of molecularly-based therapy is expanding. Here, we review key molecular features of USC, discuss current management, and assess the landscape of novel therapies and combinations.
- The COVID-19 pandemic has consumed considerable resources and has impacted the delivery of cancer care. Patients with cancer may have factors which place them at high risk for COVID 19 morbidity or mortality. Highly immunosuppressive chemotherapy regimens and possible exposure to COVID-19 during treatment may put patients at additional risk. The Society of Gynecologic Oncology convened an expert panel to address recommendations for best practices during this crisis to minimize risk to patients from deviations in cancer care and from COVID-19 morbidity.
