  1. Hichami A, Yessoufou A, Ghiringhelli F, Salvadori F, Moutairou K, Zwetyenga N, et al. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha deficiency impairs regulatory T cell functions: Possible application in the inhibition of melanoma tumor growth in mice. Biochimie. 2016;131:1-10 pubmed publisher
    ..Our findings suggest that PPAR? deficiency, by diminishing Treg cell functions and upregulating pro-inflammatory T cell phenotype, exerts an in vivo anti-cancer properties. ..
  2. Rabei A, Hichami A, Beldi H, Bellenger S, Khan N, Soltani N. Fatty acid composition, enzyme activities and metallothioneins in Donax trunculus (Mollusca, Bivalvia) from polluted and reference sites in the Gulf of Annaba (Algeria): Pattern of recovery during transplantation. Environ Pollut. 2018;237:900-907 pubmed publisher
    ..Overally, D. trunculus is able to induce its detoxification system and to restore relatively rapidly the status of individuals from the reference site (El Battah). ..
  3. Aboura I, Nani A, Belarbi M, Murtaza B, Fluckiger A, Dumont A, et al. Protective effects of polyphenol-rich infusions from carob (Ceratonia siliqua) leaves and cladodes of Opuntia ficus-indica against inflammation associated with diet-induced obesity and DSS-induced colitis in Swiss mice. Biomed Pharmacother. 2017;96:1022-1035 pubmed publisher
    ..Hence, the anti-inflammatory effect of carob leaves and OFI-cladodes could be attributed to their polyphenols which might alleviate inflammation severity associated with obesity and colitis. ..
