Purpose

This randomized phase II trial studies how well temsirolimus with or without megestrol acetate and tamoxifen citrate works in treating patients with endometrial cancer that has spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment, has returned after a period of improvement, or is persistent. Temsirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Estrogen can cause the growth of endometrial cancer cells. Hormone therapy using megestrol acetate and tamoxifen citrate may fight endometrial cancer by blocking the use of estrogen by the tumor cells. It is not yet known whether temsirolimus is more effective when given alone or together with megestrol acetate and tamoxifen citrate in treating endometrial cancer.
