Using the complete, multicentric Registry of organ transplantation in France, from 1970 to 1992, including 26,485 transplantations (kidney, heart, heart-lungs, lungs, liver), we studied four statistical parametres: 1. movement on the waiting list; 2. mean waiting time; 3. actuarial survival of the graft for the kidney, heart and liver; 4. number of(More)
We analysed the action, in rats in vivo, of the protein isoprenylation inhibitor perillyl alcohol (POH) and that of vitamin A, alone or in association, on m-RNA and protein expression of farnesyltransferases (FTases alpha and beta subunits) and their protein substrates RhoA and RhoB, in isolated hepatocytes. Combined administration of POH and vitamin A(More)
The matrix metalloproteinase family has been a pharmaceutical target for most of the last three decades, but success has been hampered by unwanted side effects caused by lack of selectivity, poor oral bioavailability and decreased potency in vivo. The surface-expressed metalloproteinases ADAM10 and ADAM17, the latter also referred to as TACE, play important(More)
The proto-oncogene RET is the major gene responsible for Hirschsprung's disease (HSCR), with RET mutations also implied in different pathologies. A variety of mutations of the RET proto-oncogene have been detected in HSCR patients. Special attention should be paid to rare patients who carry mutations of one of the critical cysteine residues of these exons,(More)
