The Innate Immune Response to Noninfectious Stressors: Human and Animal Models

The Innate Immune Response to Noninfectious Stressors is edited by Massimo Amadori and published by Academic Press. The Innate Immune Response to Non-infectious Stressors highlights fundamental mechanisms of stress response and important findings on how the immune system is affected, and in turn affects such a response. In addition, this book covers the crucial link […]

Neuro-Endocrine Basis of Immune Modulation: in Response to Stress and Relaxation

The Neuro-Endocrine Basis of Immune Modulation is authored by Nazmul Haque, Mahbub E Sobhani and Asif Ahmed, and published by VDM Verlag Dr. Müller. Traditional medical science has kept the mind separate from the body. In particular, neurosciences and immunology developed independently for many years, and thus, the question of how the brain communicates with […]

Seasonal Patterns of Stress, Immune Function, and Disease

The book Seasonal Patterns of Stress, Immune Function, and Disease is co-authored by Randy J. Nelson, Ohio State University, Gregory E. Demas, Indiana University, Sabra L. Klein, The Johns Hopkins University and Lance J. Kriegsfeld, Columbia University, New York. The book summarizes evidence about the seasonal variation in immunity and disease occurrence, and the interactions […]

Stress, Immune Function, and Health: The Connection

The ‘Stress, Immune Function, and Health: The Connection’ is written by Bruce S. Rabin, MD, PhD, a renowned physician-scientist and clinical immunologist. Dr. Rabin is professor of pathology and the director of the Division of Clinical Immunopathology, Department of Pathology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, US. Stress, Immune Function, and Health: The […]

Stress, Stress Hormones and the Immune System

Stress, Stress Hormones and the Immune System provides an extensive overview on the interactions between the neuroendocrine and immune systems and the effects of stress hormones on immunity. This volume is perhaps the first book focusing on the cross-talk between the brain, the stress and immune systems, addressing some fundamental and clinical implications. The 1st […]

Developmental Changes in the Neuroendocrine/Stress-Immune Interactions: Immunosenescence and Infectious/Inflammatory Disease Risk in the Elderly

Developmental Changes in the Neuroendocrine/Stress-Immune Interactions: Immunosenescence and Infectious/Inflammatory Disease Risk in the Elderly

In a recent review, Kathi Heffner from the Department of Psychiatry, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York outlines recent data suggesting that immunosenescence, endocrinosenescence and age-related dysregulation of stress response systems are closely intertwined. Immunosenescence refers to the dysfunction and gradual deterioration of the immune system associated with aging. This overall change in […]

A Mechanism Linking Immune Cells Activities, Biomarkers and Hippocampal Volume Loss to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

A Mechanism Linking Immune Cells Activities, Biomarkers and Hippocampal Volume Loss to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

In a recent review in Journal of Neurochemistry, James Andrews and Kameran Neises from the Naval Health Research Center, San Diego, California provide up to date information, and a brief but comprehensive overview on how peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) and biomarkers may play a role in a putative mechanism and effective diagnosis of PTSD. […]

Thyroid Hormone Modulation of Immune Responses in Physiologic and Stressful Conditions: Implications for Thyroid Diseases

Thyroid Hormone Modulation of Immune Responses in Physiologic and Stressful Conditions: Implications for Thyroid Diseases

Overview article Recent evidence indicates the presence of bidirectional interactions between the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid (HPT) axis and the immune system. Hypothyroidism leads to a suppression of humoral and cell-mediated immune responses, effects that are often reversed by restoration of the euthyroid state. In accordance, chronic stress induces a decrease in thyroid hormone levels that in turn, […]

Parkinson’s Disease: Peripheral Immunity Links Neurodegeneration and the Intestinal Microbiota

Parkinson’s Disease: Peripheral Immunity Links Neurodegeneration and the Intestinal Microbiota

Commentary By Marco Cosentino, Cristoforo Comi and Franca Marino On the study by Matheoud D et al., Nature, 2019; 571(7766):565-569; Doi: 10.1038/s41586-019-1405-y, Intestinal infection triggers Parkinson’s disease-like symptoms in Pink1-/- mice. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease affecting 7 to 10 million people worldwide, 1% above 60 years of age and up to […]
