Extract: There is an extensive body of scientific literature related to the field of research called psychoneuroimmunology. Clinical studies, backed up by mechanism studies, have provided convincing evidence that the central nervous system (CNS) interacts with the endocrine and immune systems and that these interactions are bi-directional. Stress has been a focal point in this body of literature because it is known that stress can induce immune dysregulation across many aspects of the humoral… 

Immunity and the carotid body: implications for metabolic diseases

How electrical modulation of the carotid sinus nerve may be utilized to adjust reflex responses and thus control inflammation and metabolic diseases, envisioning new therapeutics horizons is summarized.

Impact of Stress on Human Body: A Review

The stress condition in n individuals experiencing pressure needs a healthy and regular eating including important supplements, moreover, physical exercise and mind rest are regularly suggested for averting stress induced anxiety-linked objections and disease.

Cortisol level dysregulation and its prevalence—Is it nature's alarm clock?

This review looks at a wide range of papers where cortisol has been indicated as a factor in numerous chronic conditions—especially those which are classed as “noncommunicable diseases” (NCDs).

Assessment of stress overload is proposed as essential to understanding viral spread in the current pandemic, and the 10-item Stress Overload Scale-Short is offered as a potentially useful tool for researchers and clinicians working to map, and stem, the proliferation of coronavirus.

DISEASE MECHANISM Evolutionary Mismatch and Chronic Psychological Stress

It is hypothesized that chronic stress in industrialized society might exceed that found in the authors' environment of evolutionary adaptedness, particularly for those individuals who have not found satisfying social roles among the wide range of options available.

CCKergic System, Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) Axis, and Early-Life Stress (ELS)

Given that children, especially early adolescents, have a higher possibility to expose to a traumatic insult, adolescent trauma (AT) is an important risk factor for these post-ELS disorders.

Repeated Stress Exaggerates Lipopolysaccharide-Induced Inflammatory Response in the Rat Spleen

Data indicate that repeated stress via changes in CA levels and specific α- and β-AR subtypes exaggerates the inflammatory response likely by recruiting peripheral monocytes and neutrophils to the spleen, resulting in the induction of apoptosis within this tissue, particularly in B cells.

Biological Pathways to Stress-Related Disease Vulnerability in Educators

Teaching has often been described as a highly demanding occupation with increased risk for effort-reward-imbalance, burnout and elevated rates of premature retirement. A growing number of studies

Evolutionary Mismatch and Chronic Psychological Stress

It is hypothesized that chronic stress in industrialized society might exceed that found in the authors' environment of evolutionary adaptedness, particularly for those individuals who have not found satisfying social roles among the wide range of options available.

Effects of placebo administration on immune mechanisms and relationships with central endogenous opioid neurotransmission

Findings are consistent with a modulating effect of placebo (under analgesic expectation in humans) on a potent nociceptive, pro-inflammatory cytokine (IL-18) and underlying relationships with endogenous opioid activity, a neurotransmitter system critically involved in pain, stress, and mood regulation.

Psychological stress and the human immune system: a meta-analytic study of 30 years of inquiry.

The present report meta-analyzes more than 300 empirical articles describing a relationship between psychological stress and parameters of the immune system in human participants to find that physical vulnerability as a function of age or disease also increased vulnerability to immune change during stressors.

Stress-induced immune dysfunction: implications for health

PNI researchers have used animal and human models to learn how the immune system communicates bidirectionally with the central nervous and endocrine systems and how these interactions impact on health.

Chronic stress and age-related increases in the proinflammatory cytokine IL-6

Evidence is provided of a key mechanism through which chronic stressors may accelerate risk of a host of age-related diseases by prematurely aging the immune response.

Persistent stress as a predictor of genital herpes recurrence.

Persistent stressors and highest level of anxiety predicted genital herpes recurrence, whereas transient mood states, short-term stressors, and life change events did not.
