AIM The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of Lanreotide Autogel 90 mg PR to prevent lymphorrhea after axillary dissection in breast cancer. METHODS A Phase III double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial was performed between April 1st, 2008, and December 31st, 2010. The primary endpoint was the lymphorrhea volume (ml) in the axillary(More)
UNLABELLED The procedure known as sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) under local anesthesia (LA) allows surgical teams to avoid the uncertainties of frozen tissue examination and to perform axillary dissection on patients who have been informed of the risks of lymph node invasion prior to the procedure. OBJECTIVE In the absence of studies that assess the(More)
Human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a heterogeneous population of fibroblast-like cells, which are present in different locations, including bone marrow, adipose tissue, extra-foetal tissues, gingiva and dermis. MSCs, which present multipotency capacities, important expansive potential and immunotolerance properties, remain an attractive tool for tissue(More)
AIMS To evaluate the feasibility of excision of the sentinel lymph node under local anaesthesia in early-stage breast cancer. METHODS Sentinel lymph node detection under local anaesthesia was carried out on all patients presenting with breast cancer at Stage T0, T1 or T2 < 3 cm and N0, M0. The lymph node was mapped using a radioisotope and patent blue dye(More)
The aim of this work was to evaluate the value of contrast enhanced MRI for determination of response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy (type FEC) in breast cancer according to two parameters: size of the enhancing tumor and the maximum relative enhancement curve (MRC) in the same tumor area. Twenty women with breast cancer (15 invasive ductal carcinomas and 5(More)
BACKGROUND The urokinase-type plasminogen activator (UPA) and its main inhibitor plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) are involved in tumor interactions with the microenvironment. The UPA/PAI-1 content in tumor tissue can be used to identify populations at low-or high-risk of recurrence of breast cancer, even without other standard prognostic markers.(More)
A patient is described in whom a segment of colon used to construct an artificial vagina was therefore removed from intestinal continuity and was affected by typical idiopathic ulcerative colitis. The onset of disease was simultaneous in this loop of colon and in the rectum. There was no evidence of local infection. An increased ratio of IgE-plasma cells(More)
Numerous researchers have confirmed the diagnostic relevance of the sentinel lymph node (SLN) examination in breast carcinoma. Many technical problems are analyzed which are correlated with the intraoperative examination of the SLN and its sensitivity and specificity. In order to avoid the incidence of false positive or false negative intraoperative(More)
