Interleukin 1 beta mediates stress-induced immunosuppression via corticotropin-releasing factor.


Intracerebroventricular (icv) infusion of human interleukin 1 beta (IL-1) into intact and adrenalectomized rats impairs immune function. Using antibody to IL-1 as well as an inhibitor of IL-1 action, we sought to determine if endogenous IL-1 in the central nervous system has a physiological role in mediating the immunosuppressive effects of stress.
