This paper presents an implementation study of a wireless communication network in Printed Circuit Board (PCB) context. First, we point out the needs and the constraints in term of communication for a Wireless Interconnect Network-on-Board (WiNoB). Then, we present the electrical characteristics of the chosen dipole and “Vivaldi” antennas for(More)
In this paper we introduce MULTIVOC, a real-world text-to-speech product geared to the French language. Starting from a ordinary French text, MULTIVOC generates in real-time a high quality speech using a synthesis-by-diphone method. The processing is divided into 3 main transformations (phonetization, automatic prosody and rhythm marking, and generation of(More)
Antiestrogens, such as tamoxifen, have a direct antitumor action and are widely used in cancer therapy. The direct antitumor action of GnRH analogs has been documented in bothin vitro and clinical studies. GnRH analog direct action could therefore provide an alternative approach in postmenopausal patients developing antiestrogen resistance, a frequent cause(More)
Among diffuse gliomas, oligodendrogliomas may account for 25% of cases. They have a better prognosis and chemosensitivity as compared to astrocytomas. Genetic studies have shown a correlation between oligodendrocyte phenotype and presence of 1p/19q deletions. In addition, these deletions are of prognostic value. The aim of the present study was to describe(More)
A well-suited model to simulate cellular population dynamics is the two-dimensional cellular automaton model, which consists of a lattice of sites, the value ai,j of each site being updated in discrete time steps according to an identical deterministic rule depending on a neighbourhood of sites around it. A cellular automaton is described which mimics cell(More)
Histopathologic features (tumor cell density, histological type, and histoprognostic grade) were analyzed in 314 breast cancers investigated for estrogen (E) and progestin (P) receptors (R). The presence of PR is associated with the presence of ER. A relationship was found between the acinoductal differentiation of the lesions and the presence of SR: the(More)
This paper presents measurement and simulation results of a wireless communication network in Printed Circuit Board (PCB) context. First, we point out the needs and the constraints in term of communication for a Wireless Interconnect Network-on-Board (WiNoB) and we explain why we have chosen “Vivaldi” antennas for this application. Then, we(More)
OBJECTIVE To try and identify a molecular signature for pathological staging and/or grading. through microarray analysis. PATIENTS AND METHODS We performed a prospective multicentre study between September 2007 and May 2008 that included 108 bladder tumours (45 pTa, 35 pT1 and 28>pT1). Microarray analysis was performed using Agilent Technologies Human(More)
PURPOSE Molecular classification of gliomas is a major challenge in the effort to improve therapeutic decisions. The plasminogen activator system, including plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1), plays a key role in tumor invasion and neoangiogenesis. Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is involved in the control of proliferation. The(More)
In 503 cases of human breast cancer, the stroma reaction of elastosis was investigated with respect to histological differentiation, pathological and biochemical prognostic factors, and steroid receptor (SR) content. Unlike perivascular elastosis, gland-related (ductal + interstistial) elastosis was not related to the age, menopausal status, and number of(More)
