It is now clearly established that proteolytic enzymes, including plasminogen activator (uPA), play an important role in breaking down the extracellular matrix, which is considered to be a step in metastasis formation. Plasminogen activators are controlled at various levels. Two inhibitors, PAI-1 and PAI-2, have been identified, the latter being more(More)
The concentrations of cathepsin D (Cath D), urokinase (uPA) and two plasminogen activator inhibitors (PAI-1 and PAI-2) were analysed in the cytosols of 130 human mammary tumours (43 benign tumours and 87 primary and unilateral breast carcinomas). uPA, PAI-1 and PAI-2 levels were measured by antigenic immunoassays and Cath D by immunoradiometric assay. The(More)
BACKGROUND Dystroglycanopathies are a group of congenital muscular dystrophies (CMDs) with autosomal recessive inheritance, often associated with CNS and ocular involvement. They are characterized by the abnormal glycosylation of alpha-dystroglycan, and caused by mutations in at least six genes encoding enzymes: FKTN, POMGNT1, POMT1, POMT2, FKRP, and LARGE.(More)
Inherited prion diseases are characterized by mutations in the PRNP gene encoding the prion protein (PrP). We report a novel missense mutation in the PRNP gene (resulting in a G114V mutation in PrP) in members of a Uruguayan family with clinical and histopathologic features of prion disease. Affected individuals were characterized by an early age at onset,(More)
UNLABELLED In French hospitals, medical diagnosis coding with the ICD10 is commonly performed and the use of effective tools would help coders in their task. AIM OF THIS WORK: To ameliorate an existing coding help system. This system, which already consists of the ICD10 analytical index, would be increased with the terms of the alphabetical index that(More)
The present study investigates the temperature and specimen geometry dependence of cleavage fracture micromechanisms of a French pressure vessel steel (A508 Cl.3) over a temperature range which covers the lower shelf up to the DBT fracture toughness range. Notched tensile (NT) specimens with 3 different radii and CT specimens with two different thicknesses(More)
OBJECTIVE Computerized tools may be useful in speeding up and facilitating the laborious task of coding patient information. This paper describes a method of objectively evaluating their efficiency. DESIGN 38 study subjects were randomly assigned to a manual coding group or an automated coding group, with stratification according to two variables (used to(More)
Urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) is a potentially important prognostic factor in breast cancer for identifying patients at high risk of recurrence. This retrospective study assessed two enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) methods measuring uPA antigen levels in 499 primary breast cancer cytosols. Both uPA methods were applied to cytosols(More)
