Over 10% of new cancer diagnoses occur in reproductive aged women, impacting 87 per 100,000 women each year [1]. Improvement in the management and treatment of these patients is leading to improved survival [2] and greater interest in survivorship outcomes. There is a growing movement to preserve the fullness of cancer patients ’ future. Satisfactory quality-of-life in cancer survivors may include the ability to conceive children and the infertility associated with cancer treatment can contribute to profound distress and depression in survivors [3].

Phosphoinositide-specific phospholipases C (PI-PLCs) are involved in signaling pathways related to critical cellular functions, such as cell cycle regulation, cell differentiation, and gene expression. Nuclear PI-PLCs have been studied as key enzymes, molecular targets, and clinical prognostic/diagnostic factors in many physiopathologic processes. Here, we summarize the main studies about nuclear PI-PLCs, specifically, the imbalance of isozymes such as PI-PLCβ1 and PI-PLC, in cerebral, hematologic, neuromuscular, and fertility disorders. PI-PLCβ1 and PI-PLC1 affect epilepsy, depression, and bipolar disorder. In t...

Bradley Goldman has filled out a size large T-shirt his whole adult life. As a bodybuilder, he knew that a steady stream of lean, bland proteins, heavy weights and steroids would make his muscles pop. But over the past six months, Goldman, a fitness and nutrition consultant in Los Angeles, has watched his jacked physique soften and shrink. “I cracked a couple of weeks ago, and I had to buy a shirt a whole size smaller,” he says. He tried it on for his wife Brittany, and it hung loose on his frame. “I just kind of shook my head,” he says. He knew she saw the changes too. Goldman, now 30, began takin...

But the mere existence of this particular boy, who just a month earlier had taken his first steps, brings the miracle somehow closer to ...
