Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is one of the most common causes of cancer related death. Despite the advances in understanding of the molecular pathogenesis, pancreatic cancer remains a major unsolved health problem. Overall, the 5-year survival rate is less than 5% demonstrating the insufficiency of current therapies. Most cytotoxic therapies(More)
Understanding the molecular pathogenesis of inflammatory liver disease is essential to design efficient therapeutic approaches. In hepatocytes, the dimeric transcription factor c-JUN/AP-1 is a major mediator of cell survival during hepatitis, although functions for other JUN proteins in liver disease are less defined. Here, we found that JUNB was(More)
Primary heart tumors are an extremely rare oncological entity with primary cardiac sarcomas usually representing 20% of all primary cardiac tumorous lesions [Shanmugam: Eur J Cardiothorac Surg 2006;29: 925-932; Orlandi et al.: J Thorac Oncol 2010;5: 1483-1489]. Angiosarcoma is the most prevalent histology and despite a multidisciplinary approach tends to(More)
