In brief: Depends

This really depends on the stage (extent of disease) and histology (specific type) of the endometrial cancer.
That having been said one of the more common chemotherapy regimens that is used for endometrial cancer patients is Carboplatin and taxol (paclitaxel).

In brief: Chemo for uterine CA

This typically consists of two drugs, Carboplatin and paclitaxel.
However, some clinicians may prescribe the three-drug combination of cisplatin, doxorubicin, and Paclitaxel (tap). This may be alone, or in combination with radiation and/or hormone therapy, among other treatment protocols that are used.
