Beta-endorphin modulates human immune activity via non-opiate receptor mechanisms.


Here we report that Beta-endorphin is a potent and efficacious suppressor of phytohemagglutinin induced T-lymphocyte blastogenesis when human leukocytes are exposed early in the course of mitogenic activation. This suppression becomes more difficult to observe, however, if blastogenesis is established by prior exposure to mitogen. Suppression by Beta… (More)
