Title
(EN) MARKERS FOR ENDOMETRIAL CANCER
Abstract
(EN)

The invention relates to the surprising finding that biomarkers corresponding to ACAA1, AP1M2, CGN, DDR1, EPS8L2, FASTKD1, GMIP, IKBKE, P2RX4, P4HB, PHKG2, PPFIBP2, PPP1R16A, RASSF7, RNF183, SIRT6, TJP3, EFEMP2, SOCS2, and DCN are differentially expressed in control samples as compared to samples from patients having endometrial cancer and are therefore useful for detecting endometrial cancer. In particular these biomarkers having excellent sensitivity, specificity, and/or the ability to separate affected from non affected individuals. Furthermore, the inventors found that the differential expression of these biomarkers in primary endometrial cancer tumor tissue is correlated to their expression level in uterine fluid samples as compared to control values. Thus these biomarkers are robust in that they are found to be differentially expressed in several different types of samples from affected and individuals.
