PURPOSE OF REVIEW Members of the Bcl-2 family of proteins are critical components in regulating the intrinsic apoptotic pathway. Bcl-2 protein overexpression is associated with drug resistance and poor clinical outcome in cancer patients. Preclinical and clinical evaluations demonstrate that downregulation of Bcl-2 restores the intrinsic apoptotic pathways(More)
Obesity and the accompanying metabolic syndrome are strongly associated with heightened morbidity and mortality in older adults. In our review of more than 20 epidemiologic studies of major infectious diseases, including leaders such as tuberculosis, community-acquired pneumonia, and sepsis, obesity was associated with better outcomes. A cause-and-effect(More)
The maternal microbiota has long been considered a potential cause for adverse perinatal outcomes. Gene expression regulators in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells are influenced by changes in their microenvironments. We propose the novel idea that during in utero development, an adaptive and dynamic gene-regulatory cross talk might exist between the host(More)
