Metastasis is the primary cause of death from solid cancers, especially in endometrial cancer.

In most patients it is impossible to know without radical surgery who is suffering from metastasis. This project will develop a diagnostic method utilizing latest mass spectrometry technology to determine these patients.

The new diagnostic method will save lives and spare patients unnecessary interventions which are associated with significant morbidity and loss of quality of life.
