Previous work in our laboratory has shown that both mu- and kappa-opioid agonists exhibit immunosuppressive activity for antibody responses in vitro. Our earlier work has suggested that both accessory cells and T cells may be altered following treatment with the kappa-opioid agonist U50,488H. We intend to further determine the identity of the immune cell… CONTINUE READING
