Description

The primary objective is to determine if the addition of metformin to the standard regimen of carboplatin and paclitaxel prolongs progression-free survival (PFS) in women with advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer (Phase II).  To determine if the addition of metformin to the standard regimen of carboplatin and paclitaxel prolongs overall survival (OS) in the same population if a phase III study is conducted.  Both clinical trials (Phase II and III) will utilize OS as a primary endpoint if a phase III trial is opened.
