Extranodal natural killer (NK)/T-cell lymphoma of nasal type (NKTCL) is a malignant disorder of cytotoxic lymphocytes of NK or more rarely T cells associated with clonal Epstein-Barr virus infection. Extranodal NKTCL is rare in Western countries, but in Asia and Central and South America it can account for up to 10% of non-Hodgkin's lymphomas. It is an(More)
BACKGROUND Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic disease of unknown etiology characterized by a disproportionate Th1 granulomatous immune response in the organs involved. Plasmatic hypergammaglobulinemia and B cell accumulation in granulomatous lesions suggest the possible role of humoral immune responses in the pathogenesis of sarcoidosis. The purpose of this(More)
It is now widely accepted that polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis of cutaneous T-cell clonality is of diagnostic value in cutaneous T-cell lymphomas (CTCLs) and most helpful in the diagnosis of mycosis fungoides (MF). However, the diagnostic and prognostic value of circulating clonal T cells remains unclear. We studied T-cell clonality in the(More)
The soluble TNF-like weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK, TNFSF12) binds to the fibroblast growth factor-inducible 14 receptor (FN14, TNFRSF12A) on the cell membrane and induces multiple biological responses, such as proliferation, migration, differentiation, angiogenesis and apoptosis. Previous reports show that TWEAK, which does not contain a death domain in(More)
BACKGROUND Atopic dermatitis (AD) is known to predate asthma and other atopic disorders described under the term "atopic march". However, this classic sequence is not always present and only a few studies have addressed children at risk of developing asthma. The objective of this study is to define early-onset AD phenotypes leading to asthma. METHODS We(More)
Diffuse eosinophilic fasciitis (Shulman disease) is a rare sclerodermiform syndrome that, in most cases, resolves spontaneously or after corticosteroid therapy. It has been associated with hematologic disorders, such as aplastic anemia. The clinical features and long-term outcomes of patients with eosinophilic fasciitis and associated aplastic anemia have(More)
The distinction between Sézary syndrome (SS) and benign erythrodermic inflammatory diseases (EID) is difficult to make both clinically and on skin biopsies, since histomorphology can provide nonspecific results. New markers of circulating malignant Sézary cells have been recently described, especially CD158k/KIR3DL2 and T-plastin, but it has not been yet(More)
BACKGROUND The MC1R gene implicated in melanogenesis and skin pigmentation is highly polymorphic. Several alleles are associated with red hair and fair skin phenotypes and contribute to melanoma risk. OBJECTIVE This work aims to assess the effect of different classes of MC1R variants, notably rare variants, on melanoma risk. Methods. MC1R coding region(More)
The incidence of cutaneous malignant melanoma, tumors arising from melanocytes, has increased markedly over the past few years in many countries. Although early melanoma is curable through surgical excision, the prognosis of advanced melanoma is very poor, this tumor being resistant to current therapies. Thus there is a need for new therapies to improve the(More)
