UNLABELLED Using a proteomic analysis of human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), we identified the overexpression in 4 tumors of RuvB-like 2 (RUVBL2), an ATPase and putative DNA helicase known to interact with beta-catenin and cellular v-myc myelocytomatosis viral oncogene homolog (c-myc). RUVBL2 expression was further analyzed in tumors with quantitative(More)
PURPOSE For the last few years wafers of Gliadel have been inserted into the operation cavity in patients with glioblastoma multiforme. This is followed by concurrent radio-chemotherapy with temozolomide (TMZ) according to the Stupp protocol. Only a few studies have investigated this kind of treatment regimen and the impact in terms of survival and toxicity(More)
Biological activities of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) have been studied extensively in endothelial cells (ECs), but few data are available regarding its effects on pericytes. In murine embryoid body cultures, VEGF-induced expression of desmin and alpha-smooth muscle actin (alpha-SMA) in CD-31+ cells. The number of CD-31+/desmin+ vascular chords(More)
Layer-by-layer biofabrication represents a novel strategy to create three-dimensional living structures with a controlled internal architecture, using cell micromanipulation technologies. Laser assisted bioprinting (LAB) is an effective printing method for patterning cells, biomolecules, and biomaterials in two dimensions. "Biopapers," made of thin polymer(More)
BACKGROUND Influenza vaccination is recommended to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, but vaccine coverage remains low. During the 2009 influenza pandemic, French recommendations were to vaccinate immunocompromised patients with two doses of adjuvanted vaccine. This study aimed to evaluate vaccine immunogenicity in cancer patients receiving(More)
Fibroblast growth factors such as FGF-2 are potent mitogens for endothelial cells and induce their assembly into vascular-like structures in culture and in in vivo assays. However, their putative functions during physiological vascularization are poorly documented. In this study, the eye was used as a model for analyzing the vascular defects caused by(More)
Blocking angiogenesis is an attractive strategy to inhibit tumor growth, invasion, and metastasis. We describe here the structure and the biological action of a new cyclic peptide derived from vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). This 17-amino acid molecule designated cyclopeptidic vascular endothelial growth inhibitor (cyclo-VEGI, CBO-P11)(More)
4132 Background: Gemcitabine-based chemotherapy (CT) is a standard of 1st-line CT in advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma (PAC) and 5-FU/oxaliplatin combination is an option for second-line (Oettle, J Clin Oncol 2005). Data suggested a potential efficacy of 5-FU/irinotecan CT (FOLFIRI) as 1st-line treatment (Taïeb, Ann Oncol 2007) or in(More)
AIM Interleukin (IL)-17 pathway is being clinically targeted in immune-mediated diseases, most of which are associated with a significant cardiovascular risk. We investigated the relationship between serum levels of IL-17 and the risk of cardiovascular events in patients with acute myocardial infarction. METHODS AND RESULTS We used data from 981 patients(More)
The importance of protein glycosylation in the interaction of pathogenic bacteria with their host is becoming increasingly clear. Neisseria meningitidis, the etiological agent of cerebrospinal meningitis, crosses cellular barriers after adhering to host cells through type IV pili. Pilin glycosylation genes (pgl) are responsible for the glycosylation of(More)
