Establishing Organoids From Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer Patients, the OPT-I Study.

Rationale: Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is a malignancy with a poor prognosis. Resection is the only curative option and still 5-year survival rate is less than 10 percent. However, most patients present with advanced disease and are provided with palliative care. The nature of the tumour and the intense stromal reaction around the tumour cells leave pancreatic adenocarcinoma relatively insensitive to chemotherapeutics. Current models, such as cell lines or patient derived xenogra...

The Pathophysiology of Functional Neurological Disorders

Functional disorders, also called psychogenic or psychosomatic are very common, disabling and their costs to society are immense. Functional movement disorders are abnormal, involuntary movements, that are illogical in terms of classic neurology. Intriguingly, they typically manifest when patients pay attention to them and disappear with distraction. The investigators aim to further the understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying functional neurologica...

Multimodal Assessment of the Neurological Prognosis of Patients With Brain Lesions on ExtraCorporeal Life Support

It seems of the greatest importance to evaluate the neurological prognosis of patients with brain lesions after cardiorespiratory arrest or circulatory failure requiring circulatory assistance. However, to date, there is no clinical or paraclinical diagnostic test to reliably assess the future of these patients. The objective of this study is to highlight the clinical and imaging factors for establishing a neurological prognosis in patients at risk of brain lesions unde...
