OBJECTIVE DNA repair mechanisms, environment-mediated drug resistance and cancer initiating cells (CIC) are three major research concepts that can explain the chemoresistance of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). The objective was to test if changes in the expression of potential markers associated with drug resistance before and after chemotherapy would(More)
Conventional methods used for histologic classification and grading of endometrial cancer (EC) are not sufficient to predict lymph node metastases. microRNA signatures have recently been related to EC pathologic characteristics or prognosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether microRNA profiles of grade 1-2 endometrioid adenocarcinomas can be(More)
Foetal microchimeric cells (FMCs) traffic into maternal circulation during pregnancy and persist for decades after delivery. Upon maternal injury, FMCs migrate to affected sites where they participate in tissue healing. However, the specific signals regulating the trafficking of FMCs to injury sites had to be identified. Here we report that, in mice, a(More)
OBJECTIVE Lymphovascular space involvement (LVSI) is a major prognostic factor in type 1 endometrial cancer (EC). However, its use has been criticized because of poor subjectivity. MicroRNA signatures have recently been linked to EC pathologic characteristics. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether microRNA profiles of type 1 EC can be related to(More)
OBJECTIVE Pregnancy is known to alleviate the symptoms of endometriosis and is also known to be a pro-angiogenic condition affecting blood and lymphatic vessels. However, angiogenesis actively participates in the development of endometriosis. The objective of our study was to study the impact of pregnancy on endometriotic tissue. Study design We performed a(More)
Insulin-like growth factor 1 (Igf1) is important for skin development and homoeostasis. However, overexpression and inactivation studies have produced variable findings regarding its role in hair follicle (HF) biology. Here, we studied a conditional and inducible knockout of the Igf1 receptor (Igf1r) in keratin 15-expressing bulge cells. Deletion of Igf1r(More)
