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 necrosis factor or cachectin (TNF) in this temperature change. The elevation in temperature of rats exposed to cage-switch stress during the day correlated… (More)
