Abstract

 In post-menopausal women, the role of Es­trone sulphate (E1S) has not been clearly defined, and few data are available in the literature. The present study concerns the plasma E1S levels in post-menopausal women with and without endometrial cancer; the results showed that the E1S levels are related to body size but not to endometrial cancer as the free estrogens.
