Objective: Leptin, an adipocyte-secreted hormone, has emerged as a potential candidate for the link between obesity and the proinflammatory state. Specifically, leptin modulates T-helper (Th) cells toward a Th1 phenotype, with the secretion of proinflammatory cytokines. The aim of this study was to evaluate the Th1/Th2 balance in obese children and its(More)
It has been reported that sorbitol induces apoptosis in several cancer cell lines. However, the molecular mechanism underlying the sorbitol-induced apoptotic process is not yet clearly understood. In the present study, the intracellular signaling pathways of sorbitol-induced apoptosis in human K562 cells were investigated using both morphological analysis(More)
