Sympathetic nervous system modulation of tumor metastases and host defense mechanisms.

Abstract

The sympathetic nervous system can signal cells of the immune system through release of norepinephrine (NE), and may thus modulate several aspects of immune reactivity. We have examined the consequences of chemical denervation using 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) on the response of BALB/c mice to tumor cell challenge. In this study, chemical axotomy prior to… (More)
