There is genetic predisposition associated with >=10% of all cancer of the prostate (CaP). By means of a genomewide search on a selection of 47 French and German families, parametric and nonparametric linkage (NPL) analysis allowed identification of a locus, on chromosome 1q42.2-43, carrying a putative predisposing gene for CaP (PCaP). The primary(More)
Resolution of racemic tiaprofenic acid (TA) has been performed using immobilized human serum albumin as the stationary phase. The eluent was phosphate buffer-acetonitrile-n-octanoic acid (90:10:0.015, v/v). Detection was achieved at 305 nm. The pharmacokinetics of the enantiomers were studied following oral administration into humans and after subcutaneous(More)
Polymorphisms in the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene have been analyzed in several studies for an association with prostate cancer (PCA) and odds ratios (OR) > or = 3 have been observed in study populations from North America. We studied three polymorphisms in the VDR gene (poly-A microsatellite, TaqI and FokI RFLPs) in 105 controls and 132 sporadic PCA cases(More)
Alleles of the CAG and the GGC repeat in the first exon of the human androgen receptor (AR) gene have been shown to be associated with the risk of (advanced) prostate cancer. These studies had been carried out in the United States. We have analysed these polymorphisms in a French-German collection of 105 controls, 132 sporadic cases, and a sample of(More)
BACKGROUND Familial prostate cancer (CaP) accounts for 15-20% of all CaP, and hereditary CaP for 5-10% of patients. Few data are available concerning their clinical and biological features. METHODS We compared diagnostic modalities, age, clinical stage, PSA, and tumor grade at diagnosis in CaP patients according to familial CaP profile: hereditary (HR) (>(More)
Genetic predisposition accounts for >/=10% of all cancer of the prostate (CaP) and is therefore considered a major risk factor, together with age and ethnic origin. Several epidemiological studies have suggested that familial clustering of CaP may be associated with an increased frequency of breast and other cancers among relatives. In order to correlate(More)
On the basis of the theoretical distinction between self-centeredness and selflessness (Dambrun and Ricard, 2011), the main goal of this research was to develop two new scales assessing distinct dimensions of happiness. By trying to maximize pleasures and to avoid displeasures, we propose that a self-centered functioning induces a fluctuating happiness in(More)
Human serum albumin is known to have two major and selective drug binding sites, termed sites I and II. The fluorescent probes, dansylamide and dansylsarcosine selectively interact with sites I and II, respectively. However, the binding site of the fluorescent probe dansylglycine on human serum albumin is not clear from the literature. This study(More)
Serum hyaluronic acid (HA) may provide a good marker for the severity of joint disease in the rat since a positive correlation was observed in experimental models of arthritis. However, little is known about its physiological variation in rats. In the present work, we do not find any circadian rhythm of HA in healthy Sprague-Dawley rats in contrast to that(More)
The effects of human recombinant interleukin-1 beta (HrIL-1 beta) were investigated in arthritic rats sensitized with type II collagen (CII) and muramyl dipeptide (MDP). When administered subcutaneously (sc) daily during established arthritis, low (0.02 micrograms) and medium (0.2 micrograms) HrIL-1 beta doses exerted paradoxical beneficial properties on(More)
