Objectives. To investigate the expressions of survivin and Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), and their possible correlations in the development of endometrial adenocarcinoma (EC). We also looked at their association with classical prognostic factors in EC. To our knowledge, this is the first time survivin expression is investigated in terms Of its relation to COX-2 in the developmental pathway of EC.
