[en] Involvement of epigenetic modifications in cancers: development of new therapeutic approaches. Since cancer is the
second cause of death after cardiovascular diseases in industrialized countries, it is urgent to elaborate new therapeutic
approaches. Besides DNA mutations of essential genes, expansion of a cancer cell is frequently associated with epigenetic
modifications i.e. not directly coded by the DNA sequence. Amongst epigenetic modifications, histones acetylation and DNA
methylation are known to play important roles. In this context, a very promising anticancer therapy would be to correct
epigenetic errors using compounds modulating histone acetylation and DNA methylation alone or in combination with other
chemotherapeutic agents.
