The effect of obesity on inflammatory cytokine and leptin production following acute mental stress.
TLDR
This is the first study to suggest that adiposity in males may impact leptin and inflammatory signaling mechanisms following acute mental stress, and the relationship between the percent change in leptin and IL-1Ra at 120 min posttask in response to an acute mentally stress task was only observed in nonobese individuals.
Psychophysiological stress reactivity in chronic inflammatory diseases: Stress exposure and stress management in rheumatoid arthritis and psoriasis
TLDR
The need for more experimental research in rheumatic populations with controlled stress paradigms that include a follow-up with multiple evaluation points, simultaneous assessment of different physiological stress systems, and studying factors contributing to specific physiological responses, such as stress appraisal is emphasized.
Effectiveness of Stress-Reducing Interventions on the Response to Challenges to the Immune System: A Meta-Analytic Review
TLDR
Support is demonstrated for the effectiveness of stress-reducing psychological interventions in improving immunity in studies that tested immune function by means of incorporating an in vivo, in vitro, or psychophysiological challenge.
The impact of acute mental stress on vascular endothelial function: evidence, mechanisms and importance.

Association of stress-related limbic activity and baseline interleukin-6 plasma levels in healthy adults
TLDR
Plasma levels of the cytokine interleukin (IL)-6 were obtained as a baseline measure of peripheral inflammatory processes and linked to neural markers of psychosocial stress using a modified version of the Montreal Imaging Stress Task and the results suggest that baseline inflammatory physiology might be related to differences in the neural stress response.

Clinical Depression and Regulation of the Inflammatory Response During Acute Stress
TLDR
It is suggested that under acutely challenging conditions, depression is associated with greater resistance to molecules that normally terminate the inflammatory cascade and an impaired capacity to regulate inflammation could underlie some of the excess morbidity and mortality that has been associated with depression.
Effects of acute psychological stress on adhesion molecules, interleukins and sex hormones: implications for coronary heart disease
TLDR
Subjective ratings and the increase in cortisol plasma concentrations support the validity of the chosen stress model and an increase in IL-1β, IL-2 and soluble ICAM-1 plasma concentrations, which can contribute to coronary heart disease and immunological disorders.
Acute mental stress elicits delayed increases in circulating inflammatory cytokine levels.
TLDR
It is indicated that inflammatory cytokines respond to acute mental stress in humans with delayed increases, and suggest that individual differences in cytokine responses are associated with sympathetic reactivity.
Sex Differences in Glucocorticoid Sensitivity of Proinflammatory Cytokine Production After Psychosocial Stress
TLDR
Investigating the impact of psychosocial stress and HPA axis activation on the GC sensitivity of proinflammatory cytokine production in men and women demonstrates that despite similar free cortisol responses of men andWomen (studied in the luteal phase of their menstrual cycle) to psychossocial stress, gender may exert differential effects on the immune system by modulating GC sensitivity.
