Additional comments Er waren in 2018 in totaal 1.931 patiënten met een endometriumcarcinoom. Daarvan betrof het in 209 gevallen een carcinoom in stadium 3 en in 189 gevallen een carcinoom van stadium 4. De recurrence rate voor endometrium carcinoom bedraagt ongeveer 10%-20%. Dit zou betekenen dat er in de tweede lijn of later mogelijk 40 tot 80 patiënten in aanmerking komen voor deze behandeling. De uiteindelijke inschatting van experts is dat er 40 tot 50 patiënten in aanmerking zullen komen voor deze behandeling.
