The phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase (PI3K) pathway is frequently altered in cancer, including ovarian cancer (OC). Unfortunately, despite a sound biological rationale and encouraging activity in preclinical models, trials of first-generation inhibitors of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) in OC have demonstrated negative results. The lack of patient(More)
While investigating cohorts of unclassified sarcomas by RNA sequencing, we identified 19 cases with inactivation of SMARCA4, which encodes an ATPase subunit of BAF chromatin-remodeling complexes. Clinically, the cases were all strikingly similar, presenting as compressive mediastino-pulmonary masses in 30- to 35-year-old adults with a median survival time(More)
Mammary development and function are regulated by systemic endocrine factors and by autocrine mechanisms intrinsic to the mammary gland, both of which act concurrently. The composition of milk includes nutritional and developmental factors that are crucial to the development of the suckled young, but it is becoming increasingly apparent that milk also has a(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW The proven activity of poly ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitors in BRCA-mutated homologous recombination deficient (HRD) ovarian cancer has led to the availability to patients with ovarian cancer of the first targeted therapy with an associated predictive biomarker. Our focus has recently turned towards expanding the clinical utility(More)
Background Lymphocytic infiltration at diagnosis is prognostic in EOC, however, the impact of NACT on tumour infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) or PD-L1 expression remains poorly described. Patients and methods Patients with EOC and sequential samples (pre-NACT, post-NACT or relapse) were retrospectively identified. TILs were evaluated on whole sections;(More)
BACKGROUND The morphological classification of high-risk endometrial cancer is of limited prognostic value. Recent attempts to stratify tumours according to molecular signatures have shown considerable promise. Here we attempted to further refine molecular classifications using markers of the p53 pathway. METHODS We analysed the expression of p53 as well(More)
Endometrial cancer is the fourth cause of cancer in women in France and is the second most common cancer of the gynecologic cancer after breast cancer with 7275 new cases in 2012. The incidence of this neoplasm tends to increase with population aging, diabetes and obesity's augmentation. In rare cases, a hereditary factor has been described: Lynch's(More)
The demonstration of frequent defects in the DNA damage response in high grade ovarian cancer has paved the way for a new therapeutic approach aimed at exploiting this unique vulnerability. The efficacy of poly (ADP) ribose polymerase inhibitors (PARPi) in patients with homologous recombination (HR) DNA repair deficient ovarian cancer (OC) resulting from a(More)
