Nociceptors and immune cells both protect the host from potential threats to homeostasis. There is growing evidence for bidirectional signalling between these two systems, and the underlying mechanisms are beginning to be elucidated. An understanding is emerging of how both the adaptive and innate immune systems can activate and sensitize nociceptors, and, reciprocally, how nociceptors modulate immune cells. In this Review, we discuss how these interactions can be adaptive and useful to the… Expand

Neuroimmune interactions in chronic pain – An interdisciplinary perspective
TLDR
This review sets out to summarize what pain research has already learnt, or indeed might still learn, from examining peripheral and central nociceptive mechanisms using tools and perspectives from other fields like immunology, inflammation biology or the study of stress. Expand
Immune Cytokines and Their Receptors in Inflammatory Pain.
TLDR
The evidence for and against these respective mechanisms, focusing on arthritis and inflammatory skin models are reviewed, with a number of striking inconsistencies amongst the conclusions made in the literature. Expand
Profiling of how nociceptor neurons detect danger – new and old foes
The host evolves redundant mechanisms to preserve physiological processing and homeostasis. These functions range from sensing internal and external threats, creating a memory of the insult andExpand
Sense and Immunity: Context-Dependent Neuro-Immune Interplay
TLDR
The cumulative results collected so far indicate that there is an important role for nociceptors (noxious stimulus detecting sensory neurons) in driving immune responses, but that this is highly context dependent. Expand
Neuronal Regulation of Immunity in the Skin and Lungs
TLDR
The role of neuronal signaling in regulating the immune system at two major barriers: the skin and respiratory tract and atopic dermatitis and chronic inflammatory conditions are focused on. Expand
HMGB1 released from nociceptors mediates inflammation

TLDR
It is shown that transgenic nociceptors expressing channelrhodopsin-2 (ChR2) directly release HMGB1 in response to light stimulation, which is required to mediate pain and inflammation during sciatic nerve injury and collagen antibody-induced arthritis. Expand
The nociception genes painless and Piezo are required for the cellular immune response of Drosophila larvae to wasp parasitization.
TLDR
The findings show that inactivation of these sensory neurons impairs the cellular response against wasp parasitization, and demonstrate that the nociception genes encoding the mechanosensory receptors Painless and Piezo, both expressed in class IV neurons, are essential for the normal cellular immune response to parasite challenge. Expand
Neuroimmunity: Physiology and Pathology.
TLDR
Appreciating the immune and nervous systems as a holistic, coordinated defense system provides both new insights into inflammation and exciting opportunities for managing acute and chronic inflammatory diseases. Expand
The neuro-immune axis in cancer: relevance of the peripheral nervous system to the disease.
TLDR
Detailed characterization of the mediators and pathways involved in neuro-immune interactions in cancer is expected to provide insights into the pathogenesis of disease and open new possibilities related to therapeutic strategies. Expand
Disruption of the Sensory System Affects Sterile Cutaneous Inflammation In Vivo.
TLDR
It is proposed that nociceptors not only play a crucial role in inflammation through avoidance reflexes and behaviors, but can also regulate sterile cutaneous immunity in vivo. Expand

TLDR
It might be possible to develop therapeutics that target neural networks for the treatment of inflammatory disorders, including the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway, that modulate immune responses and the progression of inflammatory diseases. Expand
Interactions between the immune and nervous systems in pain
TLDR
A greater understanding of the role of the immune system in pain processing and modulation reveals potential targets for analgesic drug development and new therapeutic opportunities for managing chronic pain. Expand
Rethinking inflammation: neural circuits in the regulation of immunity
TLDR
Recent progress in the understanding of the inflammatory reflex is reviewed and potential therapeutic implications of current findings are discussed, to prevent potentially damaging inflammation and maintain homeostasis. Expand
The role of the immune system in the generation of neuropathic pain
TLDR
An important challenge for the future is to establish to what extent this immune response initiates or maintains neuropathic pain in patients and thus whether it is amenable to therapy. Expand
Nociceptors—Noxious Stimulus Detectors
TLDR
The genesis of nociceptors during development and the intrinsic properties of nock-like neurons that enable them to transduce, conduct, and transmit nocICEptors are highlighted and how their phenotypic plasticity contributes to clinical pain is discussed. Expand
Role of the Immune system in chronic pain
TLDR
This work has shown that immune cell products might have a crucial role not just in inflammatory pain, but also in neuropathic pain caused by damage to peripheral nerves or to the CNS. Expand
Direct and Indirect Antimicrobial Activities of Neuropeptides and their Therapeutic Potential
TLDR
It is envisaged that targeted therapy approaches that selectively exploit the anti-infective, antimicrobial and immunomodulatory properties of NPs could become useful adjuncts to current therapeutic modalities. Expand
Nociceptors Are Interleukin-1β Sensors
TLDR
It is shown that the proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-1 β (IL-1β), in addition to producing inflammation and inducing synthesis of several nociceptor sensitizers, also rapidly and directly activates nocICEptors to generate action potentials and induce pain hypersensitivity. Expand
Nociceptive Sensory Neurons Drive Interleukin-23 Mediated Psoriasiform Skin Inflammation
TLDR
Findings indicate that TRPV1+Nav1.8+ nociceptors, by interacting with DDCs, regulate the IL-23/IL-17 pathway and control cutaneous immune responses. Expand
Bacteria activate sensory neurons that modulate pain and inflammation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that bacteria directly activate nociceptors, and that the immune response mediated through TLR2, MyD88, T cells, B cells, and neutrophils and monocytes is not necessary for Staphylococcus aureus-induced pain in mice. Expand
