Quantifying transient psychological stress using a novel technique: changes to PMA-induced leukocyte production of ROS in vitro.

Although much work has been conducted to quantify the long-term physiological effects of psychological stress, measures of short-term, low-level stress have been more elusive. This study assessed the effect of exposure of volunteers to a mild, brief, psychologically stressful event, on the functional ability of leukocytes in whole blood to respond to… CONTINUE READING
