Non-thermal plasma (NTP) is generated by ionizing neutral gas molecules/atoms leading to a highly reactive gas at ambient temperature containing excited molecules, reactive species and generating transient electric fields. Given its potential to interact with tissue or cells without a significant temperature increase, NTP appears as a promising approach for(More)
Clinical studies have shown a large interindividual variability in rituximab exposure and its significant influence on clinical response in patients receiving similar doses of antibody. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of tumor burden on dose-concentration-response relationships of rituximab. Murine lymphoma cells (EL4, 8 x 10(3)),(More)
Olfactory receptors (ORs) are expressed in the olfactory epithelium, where they detect odorants, but also in other tissues with additional functions. Some ORs are even overexpressed in tumor cells. In this study, we identified ORs expressed in enterochromaffin tumor cells by RT-PCR, showing that single cells can co-express several ORs. Some of the receptors(More)
Human small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) is the most aggressive type of lung cancer but no clinically relevant animal model has been developed to date. Such a model would be valuable to study the molecular aspects of tumour progression and to test the effectiveness of new treatment agents. We generated a reproducible and reliable nude mouse orthotopic model(More)
A new paclitaxel (Ptx) prodrug was designed by coupling a single terpene unit (MIP) to the hydroxyl group in position 2' of the drug molecule. Using a squalene derivative of polyethylene glycol (SQ-PEG) as surface active agent, the resulting bioconjugate (PtxMIP) self-assembled in water leading to the formation of stable nanoparticles (PtxMIP_SQ-PEG NPs)(More)
Regional chemotherapy has been proposed as a treatment modality in a number of cancer settings. In primary or metastatic lung cancer, administration of chemotherapy via inhalation could increase exposure of lung tumor to the drug, while minimizing systemic side effects. Several proof of concept studies in animal models of metastatic or primary lung cancer(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) have poorly defined defects in biliary function. We evaluated the effects of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) deficiency on the enterohepatic disposition of bile acids (BAs). METHODS Bile secretion and BA homeostasis were investigated in Cftr(tm1Unc) (Cftr-/-) and CftrΔF508(More)
Pancreatic tumors are the gastrointestinal cancer with the worst prognosis in humans and with a survival rate of 5% at 5 years. Nowadays, no chemotherapy has demonstrated efficacy in terms of survival for this cancer. Previous study focused on the development of a new therapy by non thermal plasma showed significant effects on tumor growth for colorectal(More)
OBJECTIVES We have developed a relevant preclinical model associated with a specific imaging protocol dedicated to onco-pharmacology studies in mice. MATERIALS AND METHODS We optimized both the animal model and an ultrasound imaging procedure to follow up longitudinally the lung tumor growth in mice. Moreover we proposed to measure by photoacoustic(More)
Tissue factor pathway inhibitor-2 (TFPI-2) is a potent inhibitor of plasmin which activates matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) involved in degradation of the extracellular matrix. Its secretion in the tumour microenvironment makes TFPI-2 a potential inhibitor of tumour invasion and metastasis. As demonstrated in aggressive cancers, TFPI-2 is frequently(More)
