Tumor cells interact with stromal cells via soluble or cell-bound factors stimulating the production of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), a group of enzymes largely involved in the extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling in tumor invasion. Among these factors, extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN) has been shown to stimulate in vitro the(More)
Tumor invasion and metastasis are multistep processes which require extracellular matrix remodeling by proteolytic enzymes such as matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). The production of these enzymes is stimulated by many soluble or cell-bound factors. Among these factors, extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN) is known to increase in vitro(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the most important event in malignant transformation of human cervical epithelium. We analysed in cervical smears, HPV genotypes with a focus on single/multiple infections, then characteristics of HPV-16 infections (presence of other genotypes, viral load and physical state) according to the grade of histological(More)
High-risk human papillomaviruses (HR-HPV) are the necessary cause of cervical carcinomas and there is an increasing interest in using HR-HPV DNA detection in adjunction to cytological examination for primary cervical screening. To determine whether women with a normal smear negative for HR-HPV DNA detection with the Hybrid Capture II assay might represent a(More)
The aim of this study on a series of biopsies diagnosed as normal, metaplastic, low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LSILs), and high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSILs) was dual: to determine the chronology of cell cycle and proliferation abnormalities after human papillomavirus infection during the development of squamous intraepithelial(More)
The aim of the present work was to evaluate the usefulness of high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) testing for the follow-up of women with untreated low grade cervical squamous cell lesions (LSIL). For that, 412 women with a cytological diagnosis of LSIL at entry were monitored by cytology, HR-HPV testing with the Hybrid Capture II assay (HC-II) and(More)
A fraction of oropharyngeal cancer (OPC), especially in the tonsil, is caused by human papillomavirus (HPV), mainly HPV16. Noninvasive diagnostic methods to detect precancerous lesions in the tonsil would be useful, e.g., liquid-based cytology (LBC). However, ill-characterized precancerous lesions may be hidden in the depth of the tonsillar crypts. We(More)
BACKGROUND The Bethesda system classifies smears that suggest an underlying cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) as ASC (atypical squamous cell) smears. ASC smears are subdivided into ASCUS (of undetermined significance) and ASCH (cannot exclude a high-grade lesion). Today the management of ASCUS is a triage with HR-HPV testing and colposcopy is(More)
The NC1 domain of alpha3 chain of type IV collagen, namely tumstatin, has been shown to display specific anti-angiogenic properties by inhibiting endothelial cells' proliferation and inducing their apoptosis via an interaction with alphavbeta3 integrin. Until now, the tumstatin anti-angiogenic effect has only been shown by in vitro studies or mouse(More)
