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 the… Expand

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 found… Expand
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/ml… Expand
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 sodium… Expand
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-induced… Expand
CONTROL OF RENIN SECRETION IN THE ANESTHETIZED DOG.
Renin concentrations of renal venous plasma were indirectly measured by bio-assaying the pressor activity produced by plasma incubation under standardized conditions. Pressor activity was detectabl...
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 control… Expand
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 tumor… Expand
