Summary Recent evidence proving the molecular link between unchecked, chronic inflammation and cancer has implicated the transcription factor NF-kB as a key factor in both inhibiting apoptosis and promoting cell proliferation. Since its initial identification 20 years ago as a simple regulating factor in one small part of the immune response, NF-kB is proving to be the most protean of all transcription factors. It has been shown to function in most cell types as a key regulator of a number of inducible genes. Research on the responsibilities and resulting pathologies of NF-kB has been prolific, but un
