FGSM2 – Résumé N°3

Voici une proposition de résumé.

Cet article, publié dans New Scientist en 2013 traite des nouveaux thérapies pour les mélanomes avancés.

Normalement identifiées et éliminées par les lymphocytes T, les cellules cancéreuses ont trouvé le moyen de se cacher en développant à leur surface un ligand. Ce dernier active un récepteur nommé PD-1 sur le lymphocyte T qui va considérer que la cellule est normale.

Trois anticorps ont été développés afin de bloquer cette interaction. En Californie (UCLA) et à New York, les chercheurs ont testé des médicaments appelés Lambrolizumab, et Nivolumab respectivement. Dans les deux cas pour plus d’un tiers des cas le volume des tumeurs a été divisé en deux. Un troisième anticorps qui vise le ligand plutôt que le récepteur PD-1 a produit des résultats aussi impressionnants.

Ces thérapies marchent parce que, à la différence de la chimio et la radiothérapie, elles ravivent le système immunitaire du patient.

Ces trois essais seront maintenant élargis, et complétés par des thérapies génétiques visant à améliorer la capacité des lymphocytes T à reconnaître et détruire des cellules cancéreuses, et l’approche sera également étendu à d’autres cancers.

M1GC preparation session 1/12

Refer to the three most recent links in my twitter feed above for some revision of the principles of good slide making.

You need to have your slides ready for December 1st when we will be reviewing them as a group (Video Room in the languages department), so bring them on a key, preferably in pdf format.  This will enable us to annotate them together, on the computer, and help each of you to make the necessary adjustments for the final version of your presentation.

When you present, you will need to send me your presentation (as a pdf file) at least 24 hours beforehand.  You have until the final session (Jan 5th) to hand in your summary and review of the article you chose (this should be printed, and 1 to 2 sides of A4).

M1GC – session 8 – Patents

Question 1 : What is a Patent?

A patent is an intellectual property right, and is only valid in the country where the application was filed.  Patent law varies between countries, and there are many high-profile cases of firms taking others to court for infringement of a patent.  One of the most recent ‘patent wars’ in the news is between Apple and Samsung.
A patent is a technical description of an invention, and must present something novel and non-obvious.  Documents are often drafted and filed long before they are used in a real project or product, and the application process can be long and time-consuming.  A specialist in patent law is consulted to make sure that all risks are covered.

Question 2 : What is the structure of a patent application?

A typical patent will contain
(1) Reference information (authors, dates, numbers…)
(2) an abstract describing the broad outline of the patent (Note that this type of abstract is radically different from that of a typical research article.  Here the authors don’t describe context, but go straight into describing the invention)
(3) any relevant figures and diagrams (all labelled and referred to in 5)
(4) A textual description stating the field of application, the background (explaining the need) and a summary stating point by point the details of the invention
(5) A textual explanation of all figures
(6) A detailed description linking the summary and figures as they relate to the claim (Definition of a claim in this context : the part of a patent (or patent application) that defines in technical terms the scope of protection granted by the patent. The claims are extremely important in case of prosecution or litigation.)

M1GC Session 7

Today’s objective is to give you the tools you need to make an informed decision about how to deal with the illustrations in your chosen article when you prepare your PowerPoint presentation.

You will first see a presentation about data and slides.

Then you will download this article, and in pairs work on either Table III, or Tables IV, V & VI combined.  It will be up to you to decide how best to show the data on a slide, and to choose which parts of the table seem most interesting, and which can be omitted.
Send it to me at the end of the session (export it as a PDF please)

M1GC session 5

Today’s session is devoted to reading your chosen article in detail.  You should make notes, check the words you don’t know and write down anything you think of that might be useful for when you actually do the presentation. (What to put on slides, and words with difficult pronunciation etc.)

In the final session you will also be expected to hand in a written paper (1-2 sides of typed A4) in which you summarize and give a critical opinion of the article you have chosen to present.  The link below will allow you to download two documents about reviewing an article.  The documents are not related to your field, but are nonetheless useful.
