The immune system and several endocrine axes communicate with each other through a network of molecules which collectively produce a coordinated response to immune challenges. This phenomenon, necessary for the survival of the organism, is thought to involve the release, by activated cells in the periphery, of proteins, called cytokines, which inform the brain about immune activation. The brain then organizes a series of neuroendocrine responses which participate in the regulation of the host… CONTINUE READING
