PURPOSE A crucial event in lung adenocarcinoma progression is the switch from an aerogenous spread toward an infiltrating tumor. Loss of RhoB expression has been suggested to be critical for lung cancer invasion. Here, we tested RhoB expression as a prognostic biomarker in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with a special focus on lepidic pattern. (More)
Non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide, which is mainly due to its high risk of metastatic dissemination. One critical point of this process is the ability of cancer cells to detach from the primary tumor and migrate through the extracellular matrix; however, the underlying molecular mechanisms are not yet(More)
Inactivation of the tumor suppressor gene RASSF1A by promoter hypermethylation represents a key event underlying the initiation and progression of lung cancer. RASSF1A inactivation is also associated with poor prognosis and may promote metastatic spread. In this study, we investigated how RASSF1A inactivation conferred invasive phenotypes to human bronchial(More)
The identification of oncogenic driver alterations that underlie sensitivity to small inhibitors has led to growing interest in identifying additional targetable oncogenes in nonsmall cell lung cancer. Although the therapeutic impact of the discovery of these alterations has now been widely demonstrated, the epidemiological data associated with each of(More)

Metastatic dissemination is the cause of death in the vast majority of cancers, including lung cancers. In order to metastasize, tumor cells must undergo a well-known series of changes, however the molecular details of how they manage to overcome the barriers at each stage remain incomplete. One critical step is acquiring the ability to migrate through the(More)
Although lung cancer patients harboring EGFR mutations benefit from treatment with EGFR-tyrosine kinase inhibitors (EGFR-TKI), most of them rapidly relapse. RHOB GTPase is a critical player in both lung carcinogenesis and the EGFR signaling pathway; therefore, we hypothesized that it could play a role in the response to EGFR-TKI In a series of samples from(More)
