The extracellular matrix (ECM) plays an instrumental role in determining the spatial orientation of epithelial polarity and the formation of lumens in glandular tissues during morphogenesis. Here, we show that the Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER)-resident protein anterior gradient-2 (AGR2), a soluble protein-disulfide isomerase involved in ER protein folding and(More)
ROS1 fusions are rare mutations that preferentially concern young and non-smoker women. The ROS1-rearranged protein conserves an intact tyrosine kinase domain, leading to the constitutive activation of the ROS1 tyrosine kinase function and of its downstream pathways, that are known to be involved in tumorigenesis. These molecular abnormalities have shown(More)
The use of targeted therapy (TT) has radically changed the outcome of various cancers and introduces the era of personalised medicine. Elderly patients (≥65 years) represent the majority of cancer diagnoses and deaths by age group with an increase expected over the next decade. This group of patients is heterogeneous with three categories of patients: fit,(More)
INTRODUCTION Antiangiogenic therapy is considered to be the backbone of treatment strategy in metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC). New, more focused, targeted drugs are emerging, while other targeted drugs oriented toward resistance or alternative mechanisms are under development. AREAS COVERED Antiangiogenic agents include two types of agents: the(More)
Immune checkpoint inhibitors, including targeting programmed cell death 1, programmed cell death ligand 1, and cytotoxic T lymphocyte antigen 4 pathways, are a new type of cancer treatment. This approach of targeting the immune system has demonstrated dramatic efficacy for several cancers, and various drugs have been approved by health authorities and are(More)
