Various models have been proposed for the regulation of the primary immune response. Most of the models focus on the ability of the immune system to control a multiplying pathogen, and take into account the cross-regulations between different immune components. In the present study, we integrate the immune system in the general physiology of the host and consider the interaction between the immune and neuroendocrine systems. In addition to pathogen growth and toxicity, our four-variable model… CONTINUE READING
