BACKGROUND In two phase III vaccine trials immunisation of women previously uninfected by herpes simplex virus provided protection against genital herpes disease. In deciding policy, an evaluation of the epidemiological impact of the partial protection provided by the vaccine should be considered. METHODS A sex and sexual activity stratified deterministic(More)
In Morocco, breast cancer is the most prevalent cancer in women and a major public health problem. Several Moroccan studies have focused on studying this disease, but more are needed, especially at the genetic and molecular levels. It is therefore interesting to establish the genetic and molecular profile of Moroccan patients with breast cancer. In this(More)
Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is defined as a type of breast carcinoma that is negative for expression of oestrogene and progesterone hormone receptors (ER, PR) and HER2. This form of breast cancer is marked by its aggressiveness, low survival rate and lack of specific therapies. Recently, important molecular characteristics of TNBC have been(More)
BACKGROUND Breast cancer in young women is quite uncommon and shows more aggressive characteristics with major disparities between worldwide populations. Prognosis and outcome of breast cancer in young patients are widely studied, but still no consensus is available. METHODS We retrospectively included 716 cases of breast cancer women diagnosed in 2009 at(More)
BACKGROUND As the publication of the sequence of the factor VIII gene (FVIII) in 1984, a large number of mutations that cause hemophilia A (HA) have been identified. Thanks to the advances in the detection of mutations, it is now possible to identify a putative FVIII sequence alteration in the vast majority of patients with HA. OBJECTIVES Our main(More)
The mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) like sequences have been reported to be present in some human breast cancers, but their association with breast cancer development is still controversial. In this retrospective study, we investigated the status of MMTV-like in 42 tumor biopsies and 18 paired normal tissues from Moroccan patients with breast cancer.(More)
