BACKGROUND AND AIMS Stress can alter many aspects of the immune response, and many studies have been conducted on the effects of stress on inflammatory processes, but little is known about its influence on the resolution of inflammation in tissue homeostasis, which includes the clearance of apoptotic cells by macrophages in a non-phlogistic way. In the present study, we investigated the effect of acute cold stress on the phagocytosis of apoptotic cells by macrophages. METHODS Mice were… CONTINUE READING
