PURPOSE We explored the clinical usefulness of serum carbonic anhydrase 9 as a potential biomarker for conventional renal cell cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study included 91 patients with conventional renal cell cancer and 32 healthy individuals. Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay was used to measure the carbonic anhydrase 9 level. A followup (median(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the predictive value of seminal inhibin B and anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) on the outcome of testicular sperm extraction (TESE) in patients with nonobstructive azoospermia. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Reproductive biology department. PATIENT(S) Forty-seven normospermic, 28 oligozoospermic, and 68 azoospermic patients. (More)
AIM The aim of this study is to evaluate the S100A1 and KIT as gene markers for the differentiation of common subtypes of renal tumours. METHODS Fifty-five tissue samples (15 clear cell RCCs, 15 papillary RCCs, 7 chromophobe RCCs, 8 oncocytomas and 10 normal renal tissues) were studied The gene expressions of S100A1 and KIT were analysed by one-step(More)
Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is a rare subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) with extranodal location affecting only the CNS, meninges and eye, without visceral or lymph node involvement. Its incidence has increased sharply over the past three decades, especially in immunocompetent subjects. Most PCNSL cases are diffuse large B-cell(More)
BACKGROUND Solid renal masses are found increasingly. Further analysis of the characteristics of solid renal masses is useful for optimal treatment. METHODS A retrospective analysis of all solid renal masses was conducted from December 1998 to May 2003 at the Urology Department, Central University Hospital of Saint-Etienne, France. A total of 162 solid(More)
Carbonic anhydrase 9 (CA9) is a transmembrane member of the carbonic anhydrase family. It catalyses the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide into bicarbonate and a proton, thus enabling tumour cells to maintain a neutral pH despite an acidic microenvironment. CA9 is not expressed in healthy renal tissue but is expressed in most clear cell renal cell(More)
About 30–40% of patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) will develop metastasis after curative nephrectomy. There is a strong need to identify the early metastasis with conventional and molecular risk factors. The present study aimed to test if analysis of the CA9 gene can provide useful information to predict early metastasis after nephrectomy. This study(More)
OBJECTIVE Small solid renal tumors are increasingly encountered. It is important to determine the malignancy of solid renal tumors for the choice of treatment. MN/CA9 is expressed in malignant renal cells but absent in normal cells. MN/CA9 is one of the most powerful gene markers available for RCC. The objective of this pilot study is to utilize MN/CA9 gene(More)
INTRODUCTION The expression of CXCR4 is implicated in the metastatic dissemination of different cancers. The information on its prognostic value has been very limited in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC). Our objective was to explore the prognostic value of CXCR4 in ccRCC. MATERIALS AND METHODS 104 patients with a ccRCC were studied. There were 69(More)
Malignant Langerhans cell tumor is a rare malignant proliferation of Langerhans cells, with a negative prognosis due to its dissemination throughout the body, leading to death within 1 year. This disease has to be distinguished from Langerhans cell histiocytosis. The favorable evolution of a case of Langerhans cell tumor, characterized by the absence of(More)
