Measure Description: Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) performed at baseline. PS described as 0=Fully active, able to carry on all pre-disease performance without restriction; 1=Restricted in physically strenuous activity but ambulatory and able to carry out work of a light or sedentary nature, e.g., light house work, office work; etc.

Measure Description: Endometrioid cancer grade based on how much cancer forms glands that look similar to glands found in normal, healthy endometrium. In lower-grade cancers, more of the cancerous tissue forms glands while higher-grade cancers have more of the cancer cells arranged in a disorganized way and do not form glands: Grade 1 tumors: 95%/> of cancerous tissue forming glands; Grade 2: 50% - 94% cancerous tissue form glands; and Grade 3 tumors have less than half of cancerous tissue forming glands. The higher grade, the more aggressive the cancer.

1.Primary Outcome
Title Participant Responses
Hide Description Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST): Complete Response (CR): disappearance all target & nontarget lesions, absence new lesions, documented by 2 disease assessments 4 weeks apart; Partial response (PR): 30% decrease in sum longest diameter (LD) all measurable target lesions (baseline sum LDs as reference) & absence of progression of nontarget lesions or development of new, documented by 2 disease assessments 4 weeks apart. When only target lesion solitary pelvic mass measurable by physical examination but not radiography, a 50% decrease in LD required to be PR; Progressive disease (PD): 20% increase in sum LDs of target lesions (reference smallest sum of LDs at any assessment) or appearance of new lesions within 9 weeks of study entry, and unequivocal progression of existing nontarget lesions, other than pleural effusions without cytological proof of neoplastic origin within 9 weeks of enrollment; Stable disease (SD): any condition not meeting above CR, PR, or PD.
Time Frame Responses required confirmation by imaging after 4-week+ interval following 3 week (21 day) therapy course.
Hide Outcome Measure Data
Hide Analysis Population Description
Participants who received one or more course(s) of chemotherapy and survived at least 4 weeks were considered evaluable for response; One participant was not evaluable.

2.Primary Outcome
Title Overall Objective Response Rate (CR + PR)
Hide Description Objective response (OR) defined as percentage of participants with RECIST Complete Response (CR) and Partial Response (PR), defined as CR: Disappearance all target and non-target lesions, no evidence of new lesions documented by 2 disease assessments at least 4 weeks apart. Normalization of CA-125, if elevated at baseline, is required; PR: 30% decrease in sum of longest dimensions (LD) of all target measurable lesions reference baseline sum of LD, no unequivocal progression of non-target lesions; no new lesions documented by 2 disease assessments at least 4 weeks apart is required. In the case where the ONLY target lesion is a solitary pelvic mass measured by physical examination, which is not radiographically measurable, a 50% decrease in the LD is required. 21-day cycle assessments or until either disease progression or adverse effects prohibit further treatment.
Time Frame Responses required confirmation by imaging after 4-week+ interval following 3 week (21 day) therapy course.
