AbstractNinety-one patients with adenocarcinoma of the endometrium were studied for the presence of suspicious cells in the bloodstream during treatment. Thirteen per cent of the samples in the cancer group were found to have suspicious cells as compared with a 3 per cent incidence in 139 control patients. No correlation was found with the stage of the disease, but there did seem to be a correlation with the differentiation of the tumor. The prognostic significance of the finding of these abnormal cells in the bloodstream in these patients must await long-term follow-up.
