Patients with dMMR endometrial cancer may benefit from immunotherapy1

Endometrial cancer has the highest rate of mismatch repair deficiency (dMMR) across tumor types2,3

  • 25%-30% of endometrial cancer patients have dMMR tumors3,4

dMMR endometrial cancer tumors can be associated with:

a higher
recurrence rate5

Icon: Distant recurrences

a higher rate of distant

Icon: Lynch syndrome

Lynch syndrome, a germline mutation that increases the risk
of other cancers1

Tumors with dMMR are more likely to respond to anti–PD-1 therapies like JEMPERLI6

  • Increased mutations promote antitumor immune cell reaction and increased tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes

Test your endometrial cancer patients for dMMR1,6-8

Determine MMR status using immunohistochemistry (IHC)

  • IHC is a reliable and accurate testing method to determine if a tumor is dMMR and identify patients who may benefit from immunotherapy6,7
  • There is an IHC-based, FDA-approved test that can confirm patient eligibility for JEMPERLI7,8

For recurrent/advanced endometrial cancer, National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) recommends dMMR testing if not previously done

Testing for dMMR using IHC helps identify patients who may be appropriate for JEMPERLI

    The dMMR tumor cell journey 

    dMMR upregulates PD-1/PD-L19

    JEMPERLI is a PD-1–blocking antibody7

    • JEMPERLI binds to PD-1 to block interactions between PD-1 and PD-L1 or PD-L2
    • This releases the PD-1 pathway-mediated inhibition of the anti-tumor immune response to kill cancer cells*

    Blockage of the PD-1 receptor can restore T cell function10,11

    Inhibited T Cell

    Inhibited T Cell10,11

    • Cancer cells can increase expression of PD-L1 on their surface, which binds to PD-1 on T cells
    • This reduces the immune system's ability to identify and attack the cancer cells

    Activated T Cell With JEMPERLI7,10,11

    • JEMPERLI binds to PD-1 receptors on the T cells, blocking PD-L1 or PD-L2 interactions
    • This enables the T cell to identify and attack cancer cells by restoring cytotoxic activity in the T cell

Recurrent/advanced endometrial cancer patients need effective and durable treatment options8,12,13

Most patients with recurrent or advanced endometrial cancer have a poor prognosis, with ORR dropping to <20% on 2L single-agent chemotherapy8,12†

Chart: ORR for 1L and 2L single-agent chemotherapy

ORR up to 27% has been reported in patients treated with paclitaxel who have been previously exposed to the treatment.14

1L=first-line; 2L=second-line.

2L chemotherapy in patients with recurrent or advanced endometrial cancer, historically, has shown a median duration of response of less than 1 year (4.2 to 11 months)14,15

Median Duration of response less than one year
  • There is no generally accepted standard of care within the oncology community for the treatment of recurrent or advanced endometrial cancers that have progressed on or after platinum-based therapy12,13
  • Only 3 therapies or combinations of therapies for endometrial cancer have been approved by the FDA since 201716,17
