First Evidence That Stress and Epinephrine Promote Leukemia Progression

In a recent PLoS One study, perhaps the first in the area of hematological tumors, and specifically leukemia, Shelly Inbar and colleagues from the Neuroimmunology Research Unit, Department of Psychology, Tel Aviv University, Israel, demonstrate marked adverse effects of stress hormones and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) on survival rates of leukemic animals. An increasing body of […]
