To compare preoperative intestinal trefoil factor 3 (TFF3), allograft inflammatory factor-1 (AIF-1) and calgizzarin (S100-A11) serum levels in patients with endometrial cancer, endometrial hyperplasia and in healthy female controls. Serum levels of TFF3, S100- A11 and AIP-1 were analyzed in 98 consecutive patients with histologically verified endometrial cancer, in 43 patients with endometrial hyperplasia diagnosed during hysteroscopy and 24 controls with benign disease. Results were correlated

S100-A11, and AIF-1 levels were higher in endometrial hyperplasia patients than in controls, and also significantly higher in endometrial cancer than in patients with endometrial hyperplasia. Serum concentrations of TFF3 and S100-A11 were associated with tumor stage and lymph node status. TFF3 exhibited positive correlation with age, IL-6, vitamin D, kynurenine, urinary neopterin/creatinine ratio and kynurenine/tryptophan ratio. S100-A11, as well as AIF-1 correlated positively with Il-6 and TFF3. TFF3, S100-A11 and AIF-1 represent potential biomarkers in patients with endometrial cancer. TFF3 and S100-A11 increase with tumor stage and lymph node involvement, reflecting higher tumor mass that is also associated with increased concentration of biomarkers of immune dysfunction.
