We previously showed that Bcl-xL and Mcl-1 cooperatively protect platinum-resistant ovarian cancer cells from apoptosis. Here we assessed the anticancer potential of combining ABT-737-induced inhibition of Bcl-xL with Mcl-1 inhibition via PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway disruption using NVP-BEZ235. NVP-BEZ235 inhibited cell proliferation

Carbapenemase-mediated resistance to carbapenems in Enterobacteriaceae has become the main challenge in the treatment and prevention of infections recently. The partially unnoticed spread of OXA-48-type carbapenemase producers is usually assigned to low minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of carbapenems that OXA-48-producing
