We report the results of a chemotherapy regimen combining oxaliplatin, 5-fluorouracil, and folinic acid in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. The objective of this pilot study was to define the potential efficacy of this second-line combination in patients previously treated with interleukin-2 alone or in combination with interferon alpha.(More)
The keratin 18 (K18) gene is expressed at a normal level in cells of nontumorigenic clones derived from the SW613-S human colon carcinoma cell line, but is overexpressed in cells of tumorigenic clones. A high level of expression was also found in the cells from 10 of 15 other human colon carcinoma cell lines. The expression of the gene is downregulated in(More)
PURPOSE Gemcitabine and vinorelbine are active drugs with broad spectrum of activity and manageable toxicity in clinical trials. The aims of this study were to describe the toxicity, to determine the dose-limiting toxicity, and to define the doses of gemcitabine and vinorelbine to be recommended for phase II studies in patients with advanced cancers.

Granular pastes are dense dispersions of non-colloidal grains in a simple or a complex fluid. Typical examples are the coating, gluing or sealing mortars used in building applications. We study the rupture of a thick layer of mortar paste in a simple pulling test where the paste is confined between two flat surfaces. It is shown that, depending on the(More)
Based on previous data on free immunoglobulin light chains in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), we evaluated free kappa and lambda light chains in the CSF from 3 patients groups: (a) 42 with MS, (b) 16 with other neurological inflammatory diseases (ONID) and (c) 42 with non inflammatory neurological diseases (NIND) used(More)
Granular pastes are dense dispersions of non-colloidal grains in a simple or a complex fluid. Typical examples are the coating, gluing or sealing mortars used in building applications. We study the cohesive rupture of thick mortar layers in a simple pulling test where the paste is initially confined between two flat surfaces. After hardening, the morphology(More)
Ifosfamide is an analogue of cyclophosphamide active in the treatment of numerous tumours. Although its use by continuous infusion seems to be responsible for less toxicity, differences of efficacy and toxicity, observed according to its doses and schedules of administration, still remain debated. The objective of this study was to assess the toxicity of(More)
