Pazopanib and lapatinib are two tyrosine kinase inhibitors that have been designed to inhibit the VEGF tyrosine kinase receptors 1, 2 and 3 (pazopanib), and the HER1 and HER2 receptors in a dual manner (lapatinib). Pazopanib has also been reported to mediate inhibitory effect on a selected panel of additional tyrosine kinases such as PDGFR and c-kit. Here,(More)
BACKGROUND Combination of age at diagnosis, stage and MYCN amplification stratifies neuroblastoma into low-risk and high-risk. We aimed to establish whether a microRNA (miRNA) signature could be associated with prognosis in both groups. METHODS Microarray expression profiling of human miRNAs and quantitative reverse-transcriptase PCR of selected miRNAs(More)
BACKGROUND Recombinant tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) combined to melphalan is clinically administered through isolated limb perfusion (ILP) for regionally advanced soft tissue sarcomas of the limbs. In preclinical studies, wild-type p53 gene is involved in the regulation of cytotoxic action of TNF-alpha and loss of p53 function contributes to the(More)
In order to define genetic determinants of primary and metastatic melanoma cell susceptibility to tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL), we have applied oligonucleotide microarrays to TRAIL-sensitive primary T1 cells and TRAIL-resistant metastatic G1 cells treated or not with TRAIL. T1 and G1 cells are isogenic melanoma cell(More)
A 244K genome-wide array based comparative genomic hybridization study was carried out in a familial translocation t(2;6)(p25;p21) balanced in the mother and unbalanced in her daughter. In the past, this translocation has allowed us to localize the HLA multigene cluster to chromosome 6. With microarray technology, confirmation of the chromosome localization(More)
Breast cancer includes high number of molecular entities targetable by specific agents. In this study, array CGH and PIK3CA/AKT1 mutations were used to drive patients into targeted therapy. A prospective molecular analysis was offered to metastatic breast cancer patients for whom samples were collected prospectively or retrospectively either from frozen or(More)
Focal ischemia of the small intestine does not always lead to necrosis and perforation, but may induce fibrous stenosis which is evidenced clinically by acute or chronic intestinal occlusion. Among 8 intestinal stenoses 5 were revealed by the presence of an intestinal occlusion whereas the others were manifested by intestinal occlusions complicated by(More)
