The Collaborative Group on Epidemiological Studies of Endometrial Cancer conducts pooled analyses of international data on endometrial cancer. Set up in 2005, the collaboration currently includes data on over 27,000 women with endometrial cancer from 36 studies worldwide.

The Collaboration first met in Oxford in 2007 and their initial paper, on the risk associated with oral contraceptives, showed that use of oral contraceptives confers long-term protection against endometrial cancer (Lancet Oncology, 2015). Other current and planned work includes detailed analyses of the use of hormonal replacement therapy on the risk of endometrial cancer, as well as investigations into the role of reproductive and other factors on the risk of the disease.
