In this context, in 2009, the French National Cancer Institute, a National Health and Science Agency dedicated to cancer, in collaboration with the French society(More)
CONTEXT Prostate cancer stratification is based on tumour size, pretreatment PSA level, and Gleason score, but it remains imperfect. Current research focuses on the discovery and validation of novel prognostic biomarkers to improve the identification of patients at risk of aggressive cancer or of tumour relapse. OBJECTIVE This systematic review by the(More)
The Standards, Options, and Recommendations (SOR) project undertaken by the French National Federation of Cancer Centers (FNCLCC) to develop and disseminate clinical practice guidelines in oncology has now been taken over by the French National Cancer Institute. In 2007, the SOR updated the information related to the use of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents(More)
Prostate cancer is the most common malignant disease in men. Several therapeutic agents have been approved during the last 10 years. Among them, radium-223 dichloride (Xofigo®) is a radioactive isotope that induces irreversible DNA double-strand breaks and consequently tumor cell death. Radium-223 dichloride is a calcium-mimetic agent that specifically(More)

Dans le cancer du sein, le développement des marqueurs biologiques pronostiques ou prédictifs a pour objectif de mieux identifier les patientes pour lesquelles un traitement par chimiothérapie pourrait être évité ou a contrario indiqué. Dans ce contexte, en 2009, l’Institut national du cancer (INCa), agence sanitaire et scientifique de l’État chargée de(More)
