Immunotherapy with interleukin 2 (IL-2) is not an effective anti-cancer treatment in the majority of patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC), suggesting that the activation of cytotoxic T cells or NK cells may be impaired in vivo in these patients. The production of immunosuppressive factors by RCC was investigated. Using immunohistochemistry, IL-10 was(More)
Prediction of survival for patients with metastatic breast cancer is often inaccurate and may be helped by new biological parameters. Tumour growth being angiogenesis-dependent, it has been hypothesised that the assessment of angiogenic factor production might reflect the clinical behaviour of cancer progression. This study was designed to investigate the(More)
Sarcomas are divided into a group with specific alterations and a second presenting a complex karyotype, sometimes difficult to diagnose or with few therapeutic options available. We assessed if miRNA profiling by TaqMan low density arrays could predict the response of undifferentiated rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) and osteosarcoma to treatment. We showed that(More)
Desmoid tumor is a rare connective tissue tumor with locoregional aggressiveness but unpredictable behavior. The miRNA profile was ascertained for 26 patients included in the Desminib phase II trial and an independent validation cohort of 15 patients. Predictive and prognostic supervised analysis on the Desminib cohort failed to identify miRNAs(More)

The mass assembly of galaxies leaves various imprints on their surroundings, such as shells, streams and tidal tails. The frequency and properties of these fine structures depend on the mechanism driving the mass assembly: e.g. a monolithic collapse, rapid cold-gas accretion followed by violent disk instabilities, minor mergers or major dry / wet mergers.(More)
Arp 105 is an example of a collision between an infrared luminous spiral (NGC 3561A) and an elliptical (NGC 3561B) galaxy in a cluster of galaxies. Duc & Mirabel (1994) reported in this system the genesis of star–forming tidal dwarf galaxies at the ends of the tidal tails emanating from the spiral. In this paper, the gas distribution in Arp 105 is analyzed(More)
Specific mesenchymal markers are retained and hematopoietic markers are not up-regulated by a 30 Gray-irradiation on infant foreskin fibroblasts that still respond to pro-inflammatory cytokines. (A) After 3-5 passages, the expression of surface markers was analyzed by flow cytometry on γ-FFs that were cultured for 24 h under an identical seeding(More)
Patients with metastatic neuroblastoma are rarely curable with currently available therapy, and the search for new treatment options, which include the use of inhibitors of tumor angiogenesis, is warranted. Here, we have evaluated the efficacy of one of the most promising natural inhibitors of angiogenesis described to date, endostatin, in a human(More)
HLA phenotypes were characterized for 79 patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma treated with interleukin 2 (IL-2). HLA-A32 was associated with a clinical response (P = 0.025). The frequency of HLA-A3 and/or A32 was higher among responders than non-responders (P = 0.008). Thus, these results suggest that, in vivo, IL-2 may enhance cellular-mediated(More)
