Steinberg F, Bearden M, Keen C. Cocoa and chocolate flavonoids: implications for cardiovascular health. J Am Diet Assoc. 2003;103:215-23 pubmed

Rolán H, Tsolis R. Inactivation of the type IV secretion system reduces the Th1 polarization of the immune response to Brucella abortus infection. Infect Immun. 2008;76:3207-13 pubmed publisher
..These results suggest that early differences in cytokine responses contribute to a stronger Th1 polarization of the immune response in mice infected with wild-type B. abortus than in mice infected with the virB mutant. ..
Zeki A, Yeganeh B, Kenyon N, Post M, Ghavami S. Autophagy in airway diseases: a new frontier in human asthma?. Allergy. 2016;71:5-14 pubmed publisher
..We end by offering two opposing but plausible hypotheses as to how autophagy may be directly involved in airway fibrosis. ..
Rolán H, Tsolis R. Mice lacking components of adaptive immunity show increased Brucella abortus virB mutant colonization. Infect Immun. 2007;75:2965-73 pubmed
..These results show that in the murine model host, the T4SS is required for persistence beyond 3 to 5 days after infection and suggest that the T4SS may contribute to evasion of adaptive immune mechanisms by B. abortus. ..

Lee K, Wikelski M, Robinson W, Robinson T, Klasing K. Constitutive immune defences correlate with life-history variables in tropical birds. J Anim Ecol. 2008;77:356-63 pubmed publisher
..Our results suggest that, despite probably widespread differences in the intensity and diversity of pathogen exposure, species-level variation in constitutive immune defences is understandable within the context of life-history theory. ..
