Increasing evidence has demonstrated that the immune system is closely integrated with two other physiological systems: endocrine and nervous. They communicate through circulating humoral factors such as cytokines, hormones and neurotransmitters. We undertook a cross-sectional analysis in a group of elderly subjects over 90 years to demonstrate that a functional relationship exists among the number and cytolytic activities of NK cells, bone and muscle remodelling hormones, anthropometric… CONTINUE READING
