Rebecca C. Arend, MD, assistant professor, UAB School of Medicine, UAB Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses targeted therapies in endometrial cancer.

There was a gynecologic study that showed that the combination of the mTOR inhibitor everolimus (Afinitor) and letrozole provided prolonged benefit in a patient with an mTOR mutation.

Regimens of EZH2 inhibitors in patients with ARID1A mutations, as well as MEK inhibitors, are also in the pipeline and are worth consideration, says Arend.
