Handbook of Human Stress and Immunity

The Handbook of Human Stress and Immunity 1st edition, is published by Academic Press and edited by Ronald Glaser and Janice K. Kiecolt-Glaser. The Handbook of Human Stress and Immunity focuses on human studies related to stress and immunity, but also addresses some relevant animal models for human infectious and autoimmune diseases. These animal models […]

Stress Challenges and Immunity in Space

The book ‘Stress Challenges and Immunity in Space: From Mechanisms to Monitoring and Preventive Strategies’, published by Springer is authored by Alexander Chouker, from the Department of Anesthesiology, ‘Stress and Immunity’ laboratory, University of Munich, Munich, Germany. During space flight, human physiology and health are challenged by complex environmental stressors, exerting potent effects on the […]

Cognitive Decline and Alzheimer’s Linked to Low Systemic REST Levels and Deficient Stress Protection of the Aging Brain

Cognitive Decline and Alzheimer’s Linked to Low Systemic REST Levels and Deficient Stress Protection of the Aging Brain

A study published in Translational Psychiatry indicates that low systemic (plasma) levels of the repressor element 1-silencing transcription (REST) factor represent a candidate biomarker of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The study also suggests that low systemic REST levels may be associated with a poor brain stress protection during aging. Recent research suggests that […]

Cytokines: Stress and Immunity, 2nd Edition

Homeostasis within the immune system is largely dependent on cytokines, the chemical messengers between immune cells. These diverse groups of proteins may be regarded as hormones of the immune system that play crucial roles in regulating immune and inflammatory responses. Pro-inflammatory cytokines, released during an immune response and inflammation activate the central components of the […]

Stress and Catecholamines Up-Regulate Proinflammatory Cytokine Production and Neutrophil Infiltration in Experimental Colitis

Stress and Catecholamines Up-Regulate Proinflammatory Cytokine Production and Neutrophil Infiltration in Experimental Colitis

A recent Brain, Behavior and Immunity study indicates that psychological stress contributes to the exacerbation of the murine model of colitis by promoting the mobilization and entry of neutrophils in the colon. This appears to be achieved by the up-regulation of pro-inflammatory cytokine and chemokine production and STAT3 signaling, and involves β1/β2-adrenergic receptors activation. Inflammatory […]

Hans Selye and the 80th Birthday of Stress Research

Hans Selye and the 80th Birthday of Stress Research

Stress research has been around for 80 years but has perhaps never been more actual and trendy as in recent years. The term ‘stress’ (psychological) is extremely popular and the general public, as well as celebrities, frequently use and occasionally abuse this term to describe situations causing agitation or alteration of their wellbeing. In PubMed, […]
