Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR), or dioxin receptor, is a transcription factor that induces adaptive metabolic pathways in response to environmental pollutants. Recently, other pathways were found to be altered by AhR and its ligands. Indeed, developmental defects elicited by AhR ligands suggest that additional cellular functions may be targeted by this(More)
The contribution of environmental pollutants to liver fibrosis is an important and poorly explored issue. In vitro studies suggest that the environmental pollutant 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) and other aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) ligands induce several genes that are known to be upregulated during liver fibrosis. Our aim was to determine(More)
INTRODUCTION Symptomatic postoperative lymphocysts (SPOLs) and lower-limb lymphedema (LLL) are probably underestimated complications of lymphadenectomy for gynecologic malignancies. Here, our objective was to evaluate the incidence and risk factors of SPOLs and LLL after pelvic and/or aortocaval lymphadenectomy for gynecologic malignancies. METHODS(More)
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of superselective embolization of the uterine arteries in a postpartum hemorrhage. Between November 2004 and January 2011, a total of 44 consecutive women (median ± standard deviation age 34 ± 3 years, range 23–41 years) were referred to our institution for postpartum intractable hemorrhage management. All patients were(More)
OBJECTIVE We report the long-term results of the SENTI-ENDO study evaluating the impact of sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy on management and survival in patients with early stages of endometrial cancer (EC). METHODS Patients with FIGO stage I-II EC underwent pelvic SLN biopsy after cervical dual injection (technetium and patent blue) and systematic(More)
AIMS The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic performance of 3-D contrast-enhanced power Doppler ultrasonography (3-D CEPDUS) for differentiating benign and malignant adnexal masses. MATERIAL AND METHODS Consecutive patients with adnexal masses were included prospectively and underwent 2-D ultrasonography and 3-D CEPDUS in a tertiary centre in(More)
The purpose of this prospective multicenter study was to assess one-step nucleic acid amplification (OSNA) for intraoperative sentinel lymph node (SLN) metastasis detection in breast cancer patients, using final histology as the reference standard. OSNA results were also compared to intraoperative histology SLN evaluation and to standard clinicopathological(More)
Caput succedaneum often occurs at birth, especially in vaginal delivery. It is a cranial subcutaneous serohematic extravasation, with a good prognosis, and spontaneous regression is the rule within a few days. In the literature, it has been mainly described in the neonatal period. We report a case of caput succedaneum detected in utero by ultrasound after(More)
Son of Sevenless (SOS) was discovered in Drosophila melanogaster. Essential for normal eye development in Drosophila, SOS has two human homologues, SOS1 and SOS2. The SOS1 gene encodes the Son of Sevenless 1 protein, a Ras and Rac guanine nucleotide exchange factor. This protein is composed of several important domains. The CDC25 and REM domains provide the(More)
OBJECTIVES The main study objective was to describe the distribution of sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) and the prevalence of SLN micrometastases in patients with early cervical cancer. The secondary objective was to confirm the SLN detection rate and negative predictive value found in our preliminary study. PATIENTS AND METHODS We prospectively included 25(More)
