The influence of melatonin on the age dynamics of neutrophils and lymphocytes was investigated in the blood of laboratory rats kept under different light conditions and predatory mammals, including farmer silver foxes and raccoon dogs kept under natural light (NL). The decrease in the lymphocyte level, increase in the neutrophil content, and changes in the ratio of neutrophils to lymphocytes were detected in aged rats (24 months) kept under natural light (NL) and standard light (LD) and adult… Expand

Effect of Lighting Regimes and the Melatonin Receptor Antagonist Luzindole on the Composition of Peripheral Blood Leukocytes of Wistar Rats in Postnatal Ontogenesis
Abstract A study of hematological parameters in postnatal ontogenesis was carried out on 151 Wistar rats (74 males and 77 females) kept during embryonic development and after birth in either standardExpand
Light pollution, desynchronosis, and aging: State of the problem and solutions
It was revealed that light pollution and disturbance of the photoperiod lead to desynchronosis and, as a result, to premature aging of the organism and age-associated diseases. Expand

It is suggested that managing BMI should be an integral part of health management in captive chimpanzee populations in order to partially reduce the risk of diseases associated with inflammation. Expand
Haematological and biochemical parameters characterising the progression of experimental Pseudomonas aeruginosa skin infection in dogs.
Analysis of biochemical parameters demonstrated that the period within 24 to 72 hour was crucial in progress of P. aeruginosa skin infection in dogs and matched analysis of both haematological and biochemical parameters is more accurate and indicative for the progression of bacterial skin infections in dogs.

Role of the pineal gland in immunity Circadian synthesis and release of melatonin modulates the antibody response and antagonizes the immunosuppressive effect of corticosterone
The results suggest that the pineal gland has important immunomodulatory functions through its cyclic, circadian release of MEL, and MEL administration was able to antagonize the depression of antibody production induced by corticosterone in vivo. Expand
Morphological and mineral characteristics of peripheral blood in female polar fox in relation to age.
In peripheral blood of females from the remaining age groups an increase in RBC, Ht and Hb content was observed as well as a significant (P < 0.05) decrease in WBC level together with a lower number of lymphocytes and a increase in the relative content of granulocytes and monocytes. Expand
The influence of age on the canine immune system.
Natural killer cell activity, lymphocyte subset distributions, antibody production, and mitogen-induced lymphoproliferative responses, all of which have been demonstrated to undergo age-related changes in humans and mice, were chosen as indicators of immune function. Expand
Photoperiodic Regulation of Circulating Leukocytes in Juvenile Siberian Hamsters: Mediation by Melatonin and Testosterone
Data indicate that juvenile Siberian hamsters are immunologically responsive to photoperiod and that the leukocyte responses to day length are the result of melatonin-mediated effects ofPhotoperiod on testicular hormone secretion. Expand
Granulocyte and natural killer activity in the elderly
The results show that in the elderly there is also a deficit of the aspecific immunity that might play a role in the pathogenic mechanisms of the immunosenescence. Expand

It is suggested that during the reproductively active period of male Indian palm squirrels the lymphoid organs were sensitive to melatonin; hence, the exogenous melatonin treatment had an immuno-enhancing effect. Expand
Circadian organization of the immune response: A role for melatonin
Melatonin has a general immunoenhancing effect in many species, including humans, which depends on the ability of melatonin to enhance the production of cytokines as well as on its reported anti-oxidant and anti-apoptotic action. Expand
Melatonin-immune system relationships.
Although there is overwhelming information demonstrating the immunoenhancing properties of melatonin, many questions related to the cytokines involved and the mechanisms of action of the indoleamine require answers. Expand
Melatonin, immune function and aging
Melatonin has the potential therapeutic value to enhance immune function in aged individuals and in patients in an immunocompromised state and by regulating intracellular glutathione levels. Expand
Short day lengths augment stress-induced leukocyte trafficking and stress-induced enhancement of skin immune function
It is suggested that photoperiod may provide a useful cue by which stressors in the environment may be anticipated to adjust the repertoire of available immune cells and increase survival likelihood. Expand
