BACKGROUND Ipilimumab is a recently approved immunotherapy that has demonstrated an improvement in the overall survival (OS) of patients with metastatic melanoma. We report a single-institution experience in patients treated in a compassionate-use program. PATIENTS AND METHODS In this prospective study, patients were treated between June 2010 and(More)
n engl j med 365;18 nejm.org november 3, 2011 1747 ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT00811889), was designed to provide an initial assessment of the safety and efficacy of bardoxolone methyl and to determine the dose for further studies. We found that bardoxolone methyl significantly increased the estimated GFR, a finding of great interest for the target(More)
The aim of personalized medicine is to improve our understanding of the disease at molecular level and to optimize therapeutic management. In this context, we have developed in vivo and ex vivo preclinical strategies evaluating the efficacy of innovative drugs in melanomas. Human melanomas (n = 17) of different genotypes (mutated BRAF, NRAS, amplified cKIT(More)
BACKGROUND Skin toxicity during low-dose methotrexate therapy is rare, ill described, and reported to have nonspecific histologic characteristics. Thus, misdiagnosis is common in patients with mucosal ulcers and/or skin erosions related to low-dose methotrexate. OBJECTIVE We sought to describe the features of skin toxicity induced by low-dose(More)
The anti-cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen-4 (anti-CTLA-4) antibody ipilimumab is the first treatment that significantly improved the survival rates of metastatic melanoma patients, marking a new era in the treatment of melanoma. During its development, a hallmark of ipilimumab therapy was the extended duration of response, achieved in 20% of patients. The(More)
EMMPRIN is known to promote tumor invasion through extracellular matrix (ECM) degradation. Here we report that EMMPRIN can regulate melanoma cell adhesion to the ECM through an interaction with β1 integrin involving kindlin-3. In this study, EMMPRIN knockdown in the human melanoma cell line M10 using siRNA decreased cell invasion and significantly increased(More)
Scleromyxedema is a generalized skin disease mostly associated with monoclonal gammopathy. In its chronic course, it can lead to systemic disorders related to mucin deposits in organs. We describe here specific lymph node involvement, hitherto not reported in scleromyxedema. A 68-year-old man with a 1-year history of micropapular eruption and skin sclerosis(More)
KIT mutations are frequent in acral, mucosal and chronic sun-damage (CSD) melanoma, but little is known about the mechanisms driving the transformation of KIT-mutated melanocytes into melanoma cells. We showed that exposition of melanocytes harboring the (L576P)KIT mutation to a hypoxic environment induced their transformation into malignant cells.(More)
The cyclic AMP (cAMP) signaling pathway is critical in melanocyte biology for regulating differentiation. It is downregulated by phosphodiesterase (PDE) enzymes, which degrade cAMP itself. In melanoma evidence suggests that inhibition of the cAMP pathway by PDE type 4 (PDE4) favors tumor progression. For example, in melanomas harboring RAS mutations, the(More)
