Paris Descartes University - Sorbonne Paris Cité , also known as "Paris V", is a public research university in Paris, France. It belongs to the leading academic alliance Sorbonne Paris Cité. It was established in order to succeed the medicine department of the world's second oldest academic institution, the University of Paris , shortly before the latter officially ceased to exist on December 31, 1970, as a consequence of the French cultural revolution of 1968, often referred to as "the French May". It is one of the best and the most prestigious French universities, mainly in the areas of medical science, biomedical science, law, computer science, economics and psychology.Headquartered in the historic École de Chirurgie in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, the university strongly focuses on medical science , biomedical science , social science , mathematics, computer science and law .A major pole of research and learning, Paris Descartes - Sorbonne Paris Cité is one of the most prestigious universities in France and the best one in its main domains. On that basis among others, it was rated by the 2013 QS World University Ranking 51-100th in Pharmacy and Pharmacology , 101-150th in Biological science , 100th in Medicine , 151-200th in Psychology , 151-200th in Linguistics , and 151-200th in Law .The University Paris Descartes supports a modern approach of social science on the basis of fieldwork, participant observation and ethnography . The dual master's degree in partnership with other important French academic institutions such as the École Normale Supérieure emphasizes opportunities offered as far as research is concerned.Faculty members have included eminent jurists, doctors and politicians.

Assessing the severity of cancer and its probability of reccurence are essential for properly staging and treating patients. The present inventors demonstrated that it is possible to predict a patients prognosis by measuring the expression level of various miRNA clusters. Accordingly, the present invention relates to a method for predicting the outcome of a cancer in a patient comprising a step consisting of determining the expression level of a miRNA cluster in a tumour sample obtained from said patient, wherein said miRNA cluster comprises:- miR.29a or,- miR.609 or,- miR.518c or,- miR.520f or,- miR.220a or,- miR.362 or,- miR.660 or,- miR.603 or,- miR.558 or,- miR519bor,- miR.494 or,- miR.130a or,- miR.639. Typically, the expression level of said miRNA clusters is determined by quantitative or semiquantitative RT-PCR.

The application relates to Listerin monocytogenes, more particularly to the determination of the clone to which a L. monocytogenes isolate belongs. The means of the application involve primers and/or probes, more particularly multiplex primers. The means of the application are notably useful to assess the invasivity that said L. monocytogenes isolate might show in a human being.
