Metastatic melanoma is one of the most aggressive forms of skin cancer and has a poor prognosis. We have previously identified Annexin A1 (ANXA1) as a potential murine melanoma-spreading factor that may modulate cell invasion by binding to formyl peptide receptors (FPRs). Here, we report that (1) in a B16Bl6 spontaneous metastasis model, a siRNA-induced(More)
BACKGROUND Intraoperative fluoroscopy imaging during coronaroplasty or transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt may induce chronic radiodermatitis. Temporary hair loss is a peculiar form of radiodermatitis following endovascular surgery of the cerebral arteries. CASE REPORTS Six patients (2 women, 4 men, age range: 27-47 years old) were seen for a(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of cetuximab, a monoclonal antibody that inhibits the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), as a first-line monotherapy in patients with unresectable squamous cell carcinoma of the skin (SCCS). PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty-six patients received cetuximab (initial dose of 400 mg/m(2) followed by subsequent(More)
There is a growing body of evidence to support the efficacy of topical imiquimod in the treatment of primary skin carcinomas. Conflicting data exist concerning the use of imiquimod for the treatment of skin melanoma metastases. To date, only the impact of imiquimod on cytokines involved in immunological processes has been studied extensively. We report a(More)
BACKGROUND BRAF was identified as an oncogene in skin melanoma in 2002, and since 2011 has been a therapeutic target in the treatment of metastatic melanoma. The role of BRAF mutation in tumour initiation and the disease course remains to be elucidated. OBJECTIVES The main objective of our study was to determine whether there is a relationship between(More)
N-(2-diethylaminoethyl)-2-iodobenzamide (BZA(2)) has been singled out as the most efficacious melanoma scintigraphy imaging agent. Our work was designed to assess the mechanisms of the specific affinity of the radioiodinated iodobenzamide for melanoma tissue. We studied the cellular uptake and retention of [(125)I]-BZA(2) on various cell lines. In vitro,(More)
The prognostic value of the sentinel lymph node in Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) has been examined previously in heterogeneous retrospective studies. The current retrospective study included a homogeneous population of patients with a localized MCC, all staged with sentinel lymph node biopsy. Factors associated with 3-year progression-free survival were(More)
The relationships of pregnancy and melanoma have been debatable. Our aim was to assess the influence of gestation on the course of melanoma in a classic murine model of tumor progression and in women. B16 mouse melanoma cells were injected in nonpregnant or pregnant mice on day 5 of gestation. Animals were evaluated for tumor progression, metastases, and(More)
BACKGROUND The predictive value of regression in melanoma is debated. AIM OF THE STUDY A retrospective single-centre study to evaluate the correlation between regression in primary skin tumor and the presence of micrometastases in sentinel lymph nodes. PATIENTS AND METHODS Histological signs of regression in 84 melanomas (>1 mm) with corresponding(More)
BACKGROUND Features associated with an increased frequency of cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2A (CDKN2A) mutations have been identified in families with 3 or more patients with cutaneous melanoma (CM). However, in families with 2 patients with CM, which represent the majority of familial melanoma, these factors have been rarely studied. OBJECTIVE We(More)
