Abstract: In the last twenty years we have realized that the immune system synthesizes a class of peptides, termed cytokines, that play a central role in alerting the brain to ongoing inflammation in peripheral tissues. Among the brain's responses to proinflammatory cytokines, or agents that induce these cytokines, are certain alterations in sleep profiles. Characteristically there is an increase in non‐rapid eye movement sleep (NREMS), and NREMS intensity is often accompanied by a decrease in… Expand
[Sleep and immune system].
TLDR
Sleep emerges as an important regulator of the immune system since, during sleep, the necessary functions to maintain its balance are carried out, and decreased sleep has deleterious effects that alter the metabolism and produce an increase in the secretion of C-reactive protein, interleukin (IL)-6 and tumor necrosis factor (TNF). Expand
Cytokines and normal sleep
TLDR
There is increasing evidence of a role for cytokines in regulating spontaneous non-rapid eye movement sleep and there is a significant overlap between neurohormonal systems such as the somatotropic and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axes and cytokines, particularly with regard to their effects on sleep-wake regulation.

Sleep–Immune System Interaction: Advantages and Challenges of Human Sleep Loss Model
TLDR
Human sleep loss models have been of great help in mechanistic characterization of cytokines in sleep and neuroendocrine components in non-REM sleep, respectively and the paradigm has helped establish sleep's functional characterization because of practical simplicity and often non-ambiguous results. Expand
Links between the innate immune system and sleep.
TLDR
This review provides brief tutorials on the elements of the innate immune system that detect infection, how sleep is characterized in the laboratory, issues regarding the interpretation of sleep effects on immune function, the interaction of sleep with circadian rhythms and stress, and some of the microbial products, cytokines, and neuropeptides associated with sleep regulation. Expand
Humoral sleep regulation; interleukin-1 and tumor necrosis factor.
TLDR
Two substances, the cytokines interleukin-1 beta (IL1β) and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα) are well characterized in their actions of sleep regulation and can induce symptoms associated with sleep loss such as sleepiness, fatigue, and poor cognition. Expand
Cytokines and pathological sleep.
TLDR
Recent advances in knowledge about the relationship between cytokines and disorders of excessive sleepiness are illustrated to illustrate their importance in mediating excessive daytime sleepiness in sleep loss or insomnia. Expand
The influence of cytokines on wakefulness regulation: clinical relevance, mechanisms and methodological problems.
TLDR
Clinical relevance of this issue arises from the frequency of accidents, injuries and impairment in social functioning due to sleepiness, the occurrence of fatigue syndromes associated with inflammatory diseases, cancer or obesity, the role of wakefulness regulation for the pathophysiology of affective and sleep disorders and sedation as a side effect of psychopharmacological therapy. Expand
Effects of Macrophage Depletion on Sleep in Mice
TLDR
Cold-induced increase in wakefulness and decrease in NREMS, rapid-eye movement sleep and body temperature were significantly enhanced in macrophage-depleted mice indicating increased cold sensitivity, further evidence for the reciprocal interaction among the immune system, sleep and metabolism. Expand
Role of interleukin‐6 in stress, sleep, and fatigue
TLDR
Evidence is summarized showing how IL‐6 elevations in the context of inflammatory disease affect the organism, with a focus on sleep‐related symptoms and fatigue; and conversely, how alterations in sleep duration and quality stimulate increased concentrations of IL‐ 6 in the circulation. Expand
The Sleep-Immune Crosstalk in Health and Disease
TLDR
The induction of a hormonal constellation that supports immune functions is one likely mechanism underlying the immune-supporting effects of sleep, and sleep appears to promote inflammatory homeostasis through effects on several inflammatory mediators, such as cytokines. Expand

TLDR
Data indicate that IL-1 is a mediator of astressin-induced alterations in sleep-wake behavior, and the increase in SWS and the reduction in waking that occur afterAstressin are abolished when animals are pretreated with anti-IL-1beta. Expand

TLDR
There is a third group of substances whose significance in sleep regulation is less clear but for which there are two or more lines of evidence suggesting that they may have a role in modulating non-REM sleep (NREMS). Expand
Interleukin-18 promotes sleep in rabbits and rats.
TLDR
An anti-human IL-18 antibody had little effect on spontaneous sleep in rabbits, although the anti-IL-18 antibodies significantly attenuated muramyl dipeptide-induced sleep, suggesting that IL- 18 is involved in mechanisms of sleep responses to infection. Expand

TLDR
The hypothesis that CRH is both a modulator of responses to IL-1 and is involved in the regulation of waking is supported. Expand

Neuropeptide Y (NPY) has neuromodulatory actions on multiple brain functions including endocrine, behavioral, and circadian processes and has been implicated in the pathophysiology of both anxietyExpand
Microbial products and cytokines in sleep and fever regulation.
TLDR
Cytokines are likely key mediators of fever and sleep responses to infection, and may be beneficial to host defense although this area is relatively uninvestigated. Expand

TLDR
Interactive chemical cascades involving cytokines are consistent with the homeostatic physiological mechanisms and with the multi-humoral, pleiotropic, and redundant processes that occur during acute and chronic disease. Expand

No plays a key role in inducing the changes in release of hypothalamic peptides induced in infection by cytokines, at least in part via induction of inducible NOS. Expand
