PURPOSE To determine safety and feasibility of adjuvant ipilimumab following resection of high-risk melanoma and to identify surrogate markers for benefit. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN In this phase II trial, 75 patients with resected stage IIIc/IV melanoma received the CTLA-4 antibody ipilimumab every 6 to 8 weeks for 1 year. Eligible patients received further(More)
Ipilimumab induces long-lasting clinical responses in a minority of patients with metastatic melanoma. To better understand the mechanism(s) of action and to identify novel biomarkers associated with the clinical benefit and toxicity of ipilimumab, baseline characteristics and changes in CD4+ and CD8+ T cells from melanoma patients receiving ipilimumab were(More)
Histone deacetylases (HDAC) may have a prominent role in the development of cancer and the response to anticancer therapy. However, the therapeutic relevance and tissue specificity of individual HDAC enzymes remain largely unknown. HDAC inhibitors may function as sensitizing agents to chemotherapies that target DNA through their effects on chromatin(More)
Previous plastic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation or reduction mammoplasty can potentially alter the lymphatic drainage of the breast. The purpose of this study is to determine the success rates of sentinel node lymphatic mapping in patients with previous plastic surgical procedures of the breast. A total of 83 patients with a history of(More)
Clinical effectiveness of group cognitive-behavioral therapy (GCBT) versus fluoxetine in obsessive-compulsive disorder outpatients that could present additional psychiatric comorbidities was assessed. Patients (18-65 years; baseline Yale-Brown Obsessive-Compulsive-Scale [Y-BOCS] scores ≥ 16; potentially presenting additional psychiatric comorbidities) were(More)
In spite of the efficacy of the psychodynamic psychotherapies, the number of young psychiatric residents interested in psychodynamic therapies is decreasing. Our psychoanalytical group, Genden (Genève-Denver), explored the possible reasons for psychiatric residents' hesitation to get psychoanalytic training. Five psychoanalytical psychotherapists met weekly(More)
A three-dimensional imaging system is described that optically dissects a real object into cross sections by illuminating it with a thin plane of light made to scan across its depth. An image-dissector camera with its axis perpendicular to the thin plane of light rapidly scans the cross sections so produced in real time. The images are displayed on a(More)
