We performed quantitative determination of the distribution of hyaluronan (hyaluronic acid, HA) and the HA-binding protein, hyaluronectin (HN), 2 components of the extracellular matrix of tumor desmoplasia, within 71 human breast carcinomas. Results showed that HA and HN were more elevated in tumoral than in non-tumoral adjacent tissue, and that the(More)
From October 1977 to December 1983, estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) levels were measured in 645 tumors from women with primary, unilateral, nonmetastatic breast cancer. All of them were treated surgically. Some received adjuvant radiotherapy, adjuvant chemotherapy, or adjuvant hormonotherapy. A level of greater than 5 fmol/mg cytosolic(More)
Between October 1977 and December 1983, 379 consecutive patients have been treated for unilateral, non-metastatic breast cancer, either with conservative (n = 205) or radical surgery (n = 174), with axillary dissection in all the cases. None of them had histologically proved lymph node involvement. Oestrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR)(More)
Very little data have been published on cytogenetic abnormalities in Hodgkin's disease (HD) and their correlation with clinicopathologic features are scanty. We have performed chromosomal analysis of lymph nodes from 60 previously untreated HD patients and obtained analyzable metaphases in 49 patients (82%). Chromosomal abnormalities were found in 33(More)
One hundred and seventy-eight patients with non metastatic inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) have been treated at the Centre H. Becquerel. Median follow up is 67 months (6-178). Every patient received neoadjuvant chemotherapy (mean number of cycles = 4; range: 2-8), followed by a loco regional treatment (radiotherapy = XRT or modified radical mastectomy =(More)
15 stellar types breast lesions were reviewed and classified according their etiology (fibrosing adenosis, dysplasia, dystrophy, radial scar of Aschoff, fat necrosis). Radio-anatomical confrontation allowed to understand the images given by the varying appearances of the connective skeleton surrounded by adipose lobules. The authors study the diagnosis of(More)
Some recurrent chromosomal abnormalities have recently been found to be associated with distinctive histologic subtypes of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). In a study of 62 patients with NHL whose karyotypes was determined at diagnosis, 3 patients were found to have a deletion of the long arm of chromosomes 14 at band 22 (del[14][q22]). All had a diffuse(More)
This study concerns 645 patients first treated with surgery for unilateral, non metastatic, invading breast cancer. Intratumoral estrogen receptor and progesterone level were determined in every case. Level greater than 5 fmoles/mg cytosolic protein was considered as positive for both receptors. Univariate analysis has pointed out a significant linkage(More)

None of them had histologically proved lymph node involvement. Adjuvant radiotherapy was given in 268 cases. Estrogen(More)
