A defect in the intrinsic pathway was discovered in a patient with a NRAS mutation resulting in constitutive downregulation of Bim. 6. Caspase-8 mediates apoptosis and – through interactions with NF-κB – contributes to lymphocyte activation; CEDS is characterized by both lymphoaccumulation and immunodeficiency. 7. XLP is due to mutations in SH2D1A and is characterized by hypogammaglobulinemia, B cell lymphoma, and fulminant mononucleosis due to EBV infection. The lymphoproliferation in XLP results from defective SAP-dependent TCR restimulation-induced apoptosis.

Evidence supports that polyphenols contribute to the prevention of several chronic degenerative diseases such as cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes and cancer, as well as aging.
