Osteosarcoma is the most common malignant bone tumor in children. After initial diagnosis is made with a biopsy, treatment consists of preoperative chemotherapy followed by definitive surgery and postoperative chemotherapy. The degree of tumor necrosis in response to preoperative chemotherapy is a reliable prognostic factor and is used to guide the choice of postoperative chemotherapy. Patients with tumors, which reveal > or = 90% necrosis (good responders), have a much better prognosis than tho ...[more]
Project description:This SuperSeries is composed of the following subset Series: GSE20680: Whole Blood Cell Gene Expression Profiling in Patients with Coronary Artery Disease from the Cathgen Registry GSE20681: Whole Blood Cell Gene Expression Profiling in Patients with Coronary Artery Disease from the PREDICT Trial Refer to individual Series
Project description:Gene expression profiling of immortalized human mesenchymal stem cells with hTERT/E6/E7 transfected MSCs. hTERT may change gene expression in MSCs. Goal was to determine the gene expressions of immortalized MSCs. Overall design: One-condition experment, gene expression of 3A6
Project description:A Cartes d'Identite des Tumeurs (CIT) project from the French National League Against Cancer (http://cit.ligue-cancer.net ) 25 glioblastoma multiforme tumors hybridized on Illumina SNP and Affymetrix gene expression arrays. Project leader : François DUCRAY (firstname.lastname@example.org). CIT Analysis : Julien LAFFAIRE (email@example.com). Note: PFS : progression-free survival, OS: Overall Survival,BCNU : Carmustine (chemotherapy agent). RESPONDER: if the patient has shown or not shown a response to the treatment (Bevacizumab (Avastin) plus Irinotecan). Progression during : If the disease has progressed (cancer relapse or patient's death); otherwise (patient is alive without relapse).

Project description:Gene expression profiles for ~20,000 genes using Illumina Homo sapiensRef-8 v2 Overall design: Cell lines were picked to match cell lines that were assayed in a complimentary set of transient transfection promoter activity assays. Gene identifiers on the BeadArrays were matched to promoter predictions from SwitchGear Genomics (www.switchdb.com; score>20) for transcripts that were not associated with alternative promoters. The eight cell lines are: Ags, HeLa, HepG2, HT1080, HCT116, T98G, U87MG, and G402.
Project description:Transcriptional profiling of human mesenchymal stem cells comparing normoxic MSCs cells with hypoxic MSCs cells. Hypoxia may inhibit senescence of MSCs during expansion. Goal was to determine the effects of hypoxia on global MSCs gene expression. Overall design: Two-condition experiment, Normoxic MSCs vs. Hypoxic MSCs.
Project description:Although the introduction of combined neoadjuvant chemotherapy has significantly prolonged the survival, the outcome of OS patients with poor response to chemotherapy is still unfavorable. To develop new therapeutics the elucidation of the entire molecular pathway regulating OS cell proliferation is warranted. We analysed the expression levels of 933 miRNA probes in surgical 24 samples and 8 cell lines of osteosarcoma with 3D-Gene human miRNA oligo chips. Total RNA was extracted from 24 fresh frozen tumour specimens and 8 OS cell lines. We analysed the global miRNA exprssion profiles of these osteosarcoma cases in order to find new novel potential targets for the development of therapeutic targeting OS.
