    How health-related quality of life assessment should be used in advanced colorectal cancer clinical trials.
    Ann Oncol 2017 Apr 18. Epub 2017 Apr 18.
    Institut Hospitalier Franco-Britannique, Levallois-Perret, France.
    Traditionally, the efficacy of cancer treatment in patients with advance or metastatic disease in clinical studies has been studied using overall survival (OS) and more recently tumor-based endpoints such as progression-free survival, measurements of response to treatment. However, these seem not to be the relevant clinical endpoints in current situation if such endpoints were no validated as surrogate of OS to demonstrate the clinical efficacy. Appropriate, meaningful, primary patient-oriented and patient-reported endpoints that adequately measure the effects of new therapeutic interventions are then crucial for the advancement of clinical research in metastatic colorectal cancer to complement the results of tumor-based endpoints.

    Pathogenesis of immune thrombocytopenia.
    Autoimmun Rev 2017 Jun 17;16(6):620-632. Epub 2017 Apr 17.
    INSERM 1098, Dijon, France; University of Bourgogne/Franche-Comté, Dijon, France; Department of Internal Medicine, Competence Center for Autoimmune Cytopenia, François Mitterrand University Hospital, Dijon, France.
    Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is a rare autoimmune disease due to an abnormal T cell response, notably supported by splenic T follicular helper cells, that stimulates the proliferation and differentiation of autoreactive B cells. The antiplatelet autoantibodies they produce facilitate platelet phagocytosis by macrophages, essentially in the spleen. Macrophages contribute to the perpetuation of the auto-immune response as the main antigen-presenting cell during ITP. Read More

    The treatment of fatigue by non-invasive brain stimulation.
    Neurophysiol Clin 2017 Apr 11;47(2):173-184. Epub 2017 Apr 11.
    EA 4391, faculté de médecine de Créteil, université Paris Est Créteil, Créteil, France; Department of Neurology, Philipps University, Marburg, Germany; Department of Neurology, Center for Neurorehabilitation, Valens, Switzerland.
    The use of non-invasive brain neurostimulation (NIBS) techniques to treat neurological or psychiatric diseases is currently under development. Fatigue is a commonly observed symptom in the field of potentially treatable pathologies by NIBS, yet very little data has been published regarding its treatment. We conducted a review of the literature until the end of February 2017 to analyze all the studies that reported a clinical assessment of the effects of NIBS techniques on fatigue. Read More

    IL4-induced gene 1 promotes tumor growth by shaping the immune microenvironment in melanoma.
    Oncoimmunology 2017 13;6(3):e1278331. Epub 2017 Jan 13.
    Inserm, U1016, Institut Cochin, Paris, France; Cnrs, UMR8104, Paris, France; Université Paris Descartes, Sorbonne Paris Cité, Paris, France.
    Amino acid catabolizing enzymes emerged as a crucial mechanism used by tumors to dampen immune responses. The L-phenylalanine oxidase IL-4 induced gene 1 (IL4I1) is expressed by tumor-associated myeloid cells of most solid tumors, including melanoma. We previously provided the only evidence that IL4I1 accelerates tumor growth by limiting the CD8(+) T cell mediated immune response, in a mouse model of melanoma cell transplantation. Read More

    Ombitasvir, paritaprevir, and ritonavir plus ribavirin in adults with hepatitis C virus genotype 4 infection and cirrhosis (AGATE-I): a multicentre, phase 3, randomised open-label trial.
    Lancet Gastroenterol Hepatol 2016 Sep 16;1(1):25-35. Epub 2016 Jun 16.
    AbbVie Inc, North Chicago, IL, USA.
    Background: Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotype 4 infection is most commonly reported in sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East; however, prevalence is increasing worldwide through immigration. HCV genotype 4 accounts for 20% of all infections, but clinical trial data for treatment remain limited. We assessed the combination of two direct-acting antivirals, ombitasvir (NS5A inhibitor) and paritaprevir (NS3/4A protease inhibitor; co-dosed with ritonavir) plus ribavirin in patients with HCV genotype 4 infection and compensated cirrhosis.

    Embodied emotion impairment in Huntington's Disease.
    Cortex 2017 Mar 18;92:44-56. Epub 2017 Mar 18.
    École Normale Supérieure, Institut d'Étude de la Cognition, Paris, France; Inserm U955-E01, Institut Mondor de Recherche Biomédicale, Créteil, France; Université Paris Est Créteil, Medical Faculty, Créteil, France; Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, Huntington's Disease Reference Center, Groupe Henri-Mondor Albert-Chenevier, Créteil, France.
    Theories of embodied cognition suggest that perceiving an emotion involves somatovisceral and motoric re-experiencing. Here we suggest taking such an embodied stance when looking at emotion processing deficits in patients with Huntington's Disease (HD), a neurodegenerative motor disorder. The literature on these patients' emotion recognition deficit has recently been enriched by some reports of impaired emotion expression. Read More

    Tackling psychosocial maladjustment in Parkinson's disease patients following subthalamic deep-brain stimulation: A randomised clinical trial.
    PLoS One 2017 11;12(4):e0174512. Epub 2017 Apr 11.
    Inserm U 1127, CNRS UMR 7225, Sorbonne Universités, UPMC Univ Paris 06 UMR S 1127, Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière, ICM, Paris, France.
    Background: Subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation (STN-DBS) is an effective treatment for the motor and non-motor signs of Parkinson's disease (PD), however, psychological disorders and social maladjustment have been reported in about one third of patients after STN-DBS. We propose here a perioperative psychoeducation programme to limit such social and familial disruption.

    Methods: Nineteen PD patients and carers were included in a randomised single blind study. Read More

    Nab-paclitaxel plus either gemcitabine or simplified leucovorin and fluorouracil as first-line therapy for metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma (AFUGEM GERCOR): a non-comparative, multicentre, open-label, randomised phase 2 trial.
    Lancet Gastroenterol Hepatol 2017 May 28;2(5):337-346. Epub 2017 Feb 28.
    Department of Oncology, Institut Mutualiste Montsouris, Paris, France.
    Background: Nab-paclitaxel plus gemcitabine has become a standard treatment regimen in patients with metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma; however, retrospective data suggest that gemcitabine might be inefficient in 50-60% of patients and thus not an optimum regimen in combination with nab-paclitaxel. We did a phase 2 trial to assess the activity and safety of a new regimen of nab-paclitaxel plus simplified leucovorin and fluorouracil.

    Methods: We did a non-comparative, multicentre, open-label, randomised phase 2 trial in 15 hospitals and institutions in France. Read More

    Natural non-homologous recombination led to the emergence of a duplicated V3-NS5A region in HCV-1b strains associated with hepatocellular carcinoma.
    PLoS One 2017 10;12(4):e0174651. Epub 2017 Apr 10.
    IRHS, Université d'Angers, SFR4207 QUASAV, Angers, France.
    Background: The emergence of new strains in RNA viruses is mainly due to mutations or intra and inter-genotype homologous recombination. Non-homologous recombinations may be deleterious and are rarely detected. In previous studies, we identified HCV-1b strains bearing two tandemly repeated V3 regions in the NS5A gene without ORF disruption. Read More

Meuleman); and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston (M.E.M., A.A.Z., E.A.W., N. Munshi, K.C.A., P.G.R.).
    Background: High-dose chemotherapy plus autologous stem-cell transplantation has been the standard treatment for newly diagnosed multiple myeloma in adults up to 65 years of age. However, promising data on the use of combination therapy with lenalidomide, bortezomib, and dexamethasone (RVD) in this population have raised questions about the role and timing of transplantation.

    Methods: We randomly assigned 700 patients with multiple myeloma to receive induction therapy with three cycles of RVD and then consolidation therapy with either five additional cycles of RVD (350 patients) or high-dose melphalan plus stem-cell transplantation followed by two additional cycles of RVD (350 patients).

    Institute of Neuroscience, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
    Objective: To explore the prevalence and clinical profile of males and females who develop antidepressant treatment-emergent mania (ATEM).

    Method: From an original sample of 754 patients with BD, we identified ATEM+ cases (n = 75) and ATEM- controls (n = 135) that met stringent criteria. We specifically examined the combinations of clinical factors that best classified males and females as ATEM+ cases. Read More

    HCV core antigen as an alternate test to HCV RNA for assessment of virologic responses to all-oral, interferon-free treatment in HCV genotype 1 infected patients.
    J Virol Methods 2017 Jul 27;245:14-18. Epub 2017 Mar 27.
    National Reference Center for Viral Hepatitis B C and D Department of Virology Hôpital Henri Mondor Université Paris-Est and INSERM U955, Créteil, France.
    In light of the advances in HCV therapy, simplification of diagnosis confirmation, pre- treatment diagnostic workup and treatment monitoring is required to ensure broad access to interferon-free therapies. HCV core antigen (HCV cAg) testing is rapid, giving results in approximately 60min, and less expensive than HCV RNA methods. While extensive data on the analytical performance of HCV cAg relative to RNA or comparisons in longitudinal studies of patients on interferon based (response guided) therapy there is very limited data on the relative performance of HCV cAg in diagnosis and monitoring patients receiving all-oral interferon free regimens.

    First-line rituximab combined with short-term prednisone versus prednisone alone for the treatment of pemphigus (Ritux 3): a prospective, multicentre, parallel-group, open-label randomised trial.
    Lancet 2017 May 22;389(10083):2031-2040. Epub 2017 Mar 22.
    Department of Dermatology, Rouen University Hospital and INSERM U1234, Centre de référence des maladies bulleuses autoimmunes, Normandie University, Rouen, France.
    Background: High doses of corticosteroids are considered the standard treatment for pemphigus. Because long-term corticosteroid treatment can cause severe and even life-threatening side-effects in patients with this disease, we assessed whether first-line use of rituximab as adjuvant therapy could improve the proportion of patients achieving complete remission off-therapy, compared with corticosteroid treatment alone, while decreasing treatment side-effects of corticosteroids.
