[Influence of cytokines on neuroendocrine functions during immune response. Mechanisms involved and neuronal pathways].


The action of immune-system derived cytokines to stimulate release of corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) from the hypothalamus and the consequent elaboration of ACTH and corticosteroids release has provided an especially useful model to investigate the nature of the inter-communication of neuroendocrine and immunological pathways. Substantial evidence… (More)
