Patent
Assistance Publique Hopitaux De Marseille and Aix - Marseille University | Date: 2010-11-19

The invention relates to an in vitro method for determining the ability of a patient with cancer to respond to a monochemotherapy or to a polychemotherapy involving the administration of at least one chemotherapeutic agent the liver elimination of which involves cytidine deaminase (CDA), or to be treated by at least one such chemotherapeutic agent, which method comprises determining the CDA activity in a biological sample of the patient, wherein a CDA activity above 6 U/mg of serum sample total protein is indicative of the inability of the patient to respond to the chemotherapy, a CDA activity between 1.1 U/mg and 6 U/mg of serum sample total protein is indicative of the ability of the patient to be treated by the chemotherapeutic agent when said agent is administered in the context of a monochemotherapy, and a CDA activity between 1.4 U/mg and 6 U/mg of serum sample total protein is indicative of the ability of the patient to be treated by the chemotherapeutic agent when said agent is administered in the context of a polychemotherapy.

Association Francaise Contre Les Myopathies Afm, Assistance Publique Hopitaux De Marseille and University of Oviedo | Date: 2014-12-18

The invention relates to the use of a hydroxymethylglutaryl-coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitor and of a farnesyl-pyrophosphate synthase inhibitor, or of one of their associated physiologically acceptable salts, in the preparation of a composition, particularly a pharmaceutical composition, for use in the treatment of human or animal, pathological or nonpathological situations related to the accumulation and/or the persistence of prenylated proteins in cells, such as during progeria (Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome), restrictive dermopathy or physiological ageing.


Patent

The present invention relates to the use of matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP2) as a predictive biomarker of response to antiangiogenic therapy and survival after antiangiogenic therapy in cancer patients, and to related methods for predicting or monitoring the response to an antiangiogenic treatment and the survival after said treatment of a cancer patient.


Patent
Assistance Publique Hopitaux De Marseille and Aix - Marseille University | Date: 2010-04-30

The present invention concerns a method of detection and preferably of quantification of DNA, preferably comprising prokaryotic DNA, extracted from a stool sample of an individual, especially for the molecular determination of the composition of the intestinal flora in the stool. According to the invention, one controls the quality of the DNA extraction by verifying whether one detects a specific DNA of The present invention provides a method for carrying out the extraction of prokaryotic DNA in stools.
