Abstract

Patients with primary metastatic/recurrent endometrial cancer have poor prognosis and available therapeutic options are limited. Current treatment is mainly based on platinum-based chemotherapy. Recently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted approval for the combination of pembrolizumab and lenvatinib for endo-metrial cancer patients without microsatellite instability (MSS) progressing on a previous line of therapy while European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved the combination for all comers patients failing previous platinum treatment. Anti programmed cell death protein-1 (PD-1) dostarlimab (TSR-042) was approved as monotherapy in patients with advanced, microsatellite instable (MSI) endometrial cancer progressing to platinum treatment. Phase II-III clinical trials in metastatic endometrial cancer are mainly focused on target therapies and immu-notherapy as single agents or in combination. Unfortunately, most of these trials are lacking of predictive bio-markers of response to select patients most or at least likely to benefit from those treatments.
