Endometrial cancer (EC), also known as cancer of the uterus, is the most common gynecologic cancer in the U.S. In approximately 30% of cases, EC has increased levels of a protein called HER2. Cancers with HER2 tend to be more aggressive and have poorer outcomes. A trial led by Hoyoung M. Maeng, M.D., Associate Research Physician in the Vaccine Branch, is studying the use of combination drug and vaccine therapy for certain patients with HER2-expressing endometrial cancer.

The trial will take place at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and there is no cost for participation.
