Further evidence that stress hyperthermia is a fever
Exposure of rats to an open-field results in a rapid rise in body temperature. Fifty-four percent of this rise in body temperature was blocked by intracerebroventricular administration of theExpand

Role of interleukin 6 in fever in rats.
The purpose of these studies was to assess whether interleukin 6 (IL-6) is an endogenous pyrogen, responsible for all or part of the fever caused by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in rats. We have foundExpand

The effects of psychological stress on plasma interleukin-6 activity in rats
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of a particular psychological stress, exposure to an open-field, on plasma IL-6 activity in rats. Plasma IL-6 activity was 40.6 +/- 7.2 units/mlExpand

Hyperthermia induced by open-field stress is blocked by salicylate
Psychological stress results in a rise in body temperature. Here we report that in rats, hyperthermia induced by open-field stress can be blocked by administration of the antipyretic drug sodiumExpand

Stress-induced rise of body temperature in rats is the same in warm and cool environments
Several forms of psychological stress result in a rise in body temperature in rats. In this study, we report that rats housed at a low ambient temperature (11.1 degrees C) develop stress-inducedExpand

Effects of chronic infusion of lipopolysaccharide on food intake and body temperature of the rat
Unrestrained male Sprague-Dawley rats were infused for seven days with a low (2.45 micrograms/hr) or high (9.81 micrograms/hr) concentration of E. coli lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Compared to controlExpand

Antiserum against tumor necrosis factor increases stress hyperthermia in rats.
Psychological stress (e.g., exposure to a novel environment) causes a rapid rise in body temperature in rats. In this study, we examined the roles of physical activity and the immune cytokine tumorExpand
