In this study we have investigated whether IL-1 acts as a mediator of stress responses elicited by exposure to low temperatures. We also sought whether IL-1 is released from the adrenal gland under basal conditions or after exposure to low temperatures. Normal and adrenalectomized (ADX) rats were used for acute studies, whereas the effects of a prolonged exposure were investigated in a group of human subjects during a 45-day stay in Antarctica. Circulating levels of interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta… CONTINUE READING
