    • Leptin metabolically licenses T cells for activation to link nutrition and immunity. 

      Gerriets, VA; MacIver, Nancie Jo; Rathmell, Jeffrey C; Saucillo, DC; Sheng, J (J Immunol, 2014-01-01)
      Immune responses are highly energy-dependent processes. Activated T cells increase glucose uptake and aerobic glycolysis to survive and function. Malnutrition and starvation limit nutrients and are associated with immune ...
    • Prevalence and correlates of proteinuria in Kampala, Uganda: a cross-sectional pilot study.
