David Barrington, MD, obstetrics & gynecology specialist at Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses the next steps for oncologists treating patients with stage 1B, grade 3 endometrial cancer.

The future of this space will rely heavily on evaluating results from various clinical trials to provide more guidance and recommendations for treatment options.
