Short-term stress enhances cellular immunity and increases early resistance to squamous cell carcinoma.

Abstract

In contrast to chronic/long-term stress that suppresses/dysregulates immune function, an acute/short-term fight-or-flight stress response experienced during immune activation can enhance innate and adaptive immunity.
