Abstract

Background: Adrenomedullin (AM) is a pluripotent peptide first discovered from human pheochromocytoma. AM expression has been shown in various cancer types including endometrium cancer. Bcl-2 is an antiapoptotic protein which might be regulated by AM in hypoxic conditions. The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of AM and Bcl-2 expressions in carcinogenesis of type-1 endometrium cancer.
