Sleep and biological parameters in professional burnout: A psychophysiological characterization

The findings demonstrated the interest of sleep and biological parameters, in particular HbA1C levels, in the characterization of professional burnout in white-collar workers.

Association between burnout and circulating levels of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines in schoolteachers.

Biomarkers in burnout: a systematic review.

The association between burnout, depression, anxiety, and inflammation biomarkers: C-reactive protein and fibrinogen in men and women.

Burnout, depression, and anxiety are differentially associated with microinflammation biomarkers, dependent on gender, as measured by high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and fibrinogen concentrations.

Evaluation of Anxiety, Depression, and Biological Markers in Health Professionals with Burnout.

This study aimed to verify the rates of burnout, anxiety, and depression presented by health professionals working 24-hour shifts under emergency conditions and found a significant positive correlation existed between the two dimensions - emotional exhaustion and depression.

Burnout Syndrome in Physicians—Psychological Assessment and Biomarker Research

The group with burnout presented significantly higher levels of serum and saliva cortisol, ACTH, prolactin, fasting glucose, and HbA1C compared with the control group, and the correlation analysis between biomarkers showed a positive correlation with moderate strength.

Immune and Endocrine Function in Burnout Syndrome

Production of the antiinflammatory cytokine IL-10 by monocytes was increased in individuals with burnout syndrome, and it seems unlikely that glucocorticoids or changes in glucoc Corticoid receptor function play a role in this higher IL- 10 production.

The Relationship Between Job Stress and Urinary Cytokines in Healthy Nurses: A Cross-Sectional Study

Urinary Angiogenin levels may be associated with high levels of job stress and interleukin levels have been shown to be related to depressive symptoms and inflammatory diseases like coronary heart disease.

Review article Biomarkers in burnout: A systematic review

No potential biomarkers for burnout were found, and the need for a dimensional and longitudinal approach in future research to account for the heterogeneity of burnout is emphasized.

Is burnout related to allostatic load?

Burnout seems not to be associated with this proxy measure of allostatic load, and the mediating physiological mechanisms between burnout and objective physical health remain to be elucidated.



Relation between immune variables and burnout in a sample of physicians

In a group of relatively young physicians a high degree of personal accomplishment was associated with an increase in the number of peripheral lymphocytes, particularly T subsets, and trait anxiety was found to predict the Maslach burnout inventory scores.

Burnout and risk factors for cardiovascular diseases.

The authors found that scores on burnout plus tension (tense-burnout) were associated with somatic complaints, cholesterol, glucose, triglycerides, uric acid, and, marginally, with ECG abnormalities.

Effects of work overload and burnout on cholesterol and triglycerides levels: the moderating effects of emotional reactivity among male and female employees.

The effects of objective and subjective overload, and of physical and emotional burnout, on cholesterol and triglycerides levels were studied in a quasiprospective design and both types of T1 burnout were positive predictors of the T2-T1 change in total cholesterol.

Association between burnout at work and leukocyte adhesiveness/aggregation.

Total burnout and each of its subcomponents, emotional exhaustion, chronic fatigue, and cognitive weariness, was significantly associated with LAA levels, even after controlling for age, sex, and educational level.

Relationship between perceived job-stress and glycosylated hemoglobin in white-collar workers.

It was found that a total of 102 subjects with the FPG level lower than 110 mg/dl had received no medical treatment; the score of job-dissatisfaction was significantly correlated with their HbAlc level and none of possible confounders, i.e., age, job-overload, overtime, number of cigarettes per day, alcohol consumption, obesity and blood tests other than FPG, were significantly correlated.

Glycated hemoglobin as a physiological measure of stress and its relations to some psychological stress indicators.

A counterbalanced design with two groups of nondiabetic medical students, each serving the other as a control when undergoing examination, was used to evaluate the diagnostic importance of glycated

Natural killer (NK) cell activity and NK cell subsets in workers with a tendency of burnout.

Stressor-Induced Alteration of Cytokine Production in Multiple Sclerosis Patients and Controls

The hypothesis that MS patients do not differ in stress response from normal controls is supported; however, psychological stress may enhance cellular immune responses that would be potentially harmful to MS patients.

The effects of psychological stress on humans: increased production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and a Th1-like response in stress-induced anxiety.

It is suggested that changes in the production of the pro-inflammatory cytokines, TNF-alpha, IL-6 and IFN-gamma, and negative immunoregulatory cytokine,IL-10 and IL-4, take part in the homeostatic responses to psychological stress and that stress-induced anxiety is related to a T-helper-1-like response.
