OBJECTIVE By regulating the cellular cholesterol efflux from peripheral cells to high-density lipoprotein, the ABCA1 protein is suspected to play a key role in lipid homeostasis and atherosclerosis. Twenty-six polymorphisms of the ABCA1 gene were genotyped and tested for association with plasma levels of ApoA1 and myocardial infarction (MI) in the ECTIM(More)
We genotyped five polymorphisms, including two polymorphisms with known effects on transcriptional activity, in a large cohort of 427 Alzheimer disease (AD) cases and 472 control subjects. An association between rs463946 (-3102 G/C) and AD was found and was confirmed in a replication sample of a similar size. By contrast, analysis of three recently(More)
Alzheimer's disease is a genetically complex disorder, for which new putative susceptibility genes are constantly proposed in the literature. We selected 16 candidate genes involved in biological pathways closely related to the pathology, and for which a genetic association with Alzheimer's disease was previously detected: ACE, BACE1, BDNF, ECE1, HSPG2,(More)
INTRODUCTION The primary objectives of this phase I study were to evaluate the safety and maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of SAR245409, a pan-class I phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitor, combined with erlotinib in patients with advanced solid tumors. METHODS Forty-six patients with advanced solid tumors were enrolled.(More)
Recent epidemiological, biological and genetic data indicate a relationship between cholesterol and Alzheimer's disease (AD) including the association of polymorphisms of ABCA1 (a gene that is known to participate in cholesterol and phospholipid transport) with AD prevalence. Based on these data, we postulated that genetic variation in the related and(More)
OBJECTIVE When numerous single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been identified in a candidate gene, a relevant and still unanswered question is to determine how many and which of these SNPs should be optimally tested to detect an association with the disease. Testing them all is expensive and often unnecessary. Alleles at different SNPs may be(More)
BACKGROUND This phase I study evaluated the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), and pharmacodynamics of pilaralisib (SAR245408), an oral pan-class I phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) inhibitor, in combination with erlotinib, an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor. METHODS In a 3 + 3 dose-escalation study, patients(More)
The thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI) is a key mediator in the regulation of endogenous fibrinolysis, down-regulating clot lysis by degrading the C-terminal lysine residues from fibrin, which are important for binding and activating plasminogen. Elevated TAFI antigen levels have been suggested to be associated with promoter variants and the(More)
GPR88, coding for a G protein-coupled orphan receptor that is highly represented in the striatum, is a strong functional candidate gene for neuropsychiatric disorders and is located at 1p22-p21, a chromosomal region that we have previously linked to bipolar disorder (BD) in the Sardinian population. In order to ascertain the relevance of GPR88 as a risk(More)
Polymorphisms in the Nicastrin (NCSTN) gene have recently been associated with familial early-onset Alzheimer's disease (AD). The authors genotyped four NCTSN polymorphisms in a large cohort of 489 AD cases (including 158 sporadic early-onset AD cases and 95 familial early-onset AD cases) and 386 controls but failed to replicate the association between(More)
