Type, duration, intensity, timing in relation to antigen administrationand controllability of the stressor are all relevant to its immunological impact. Ancient and pre-modern wisdom reflected awareness of body-mind bi-directional interaction. Regarding direct evidence of neural modulation of immunity 12pioneering work on the hypothalamus was mentioned.

It does appear that, relative to normal controls, there is a higher incidence of a psiconeuroimmunologia of autoantibodies, including rheumatoid factor anti-IgG and anti-nuclear factor, in schizophrenia.

The first direct experimental evidence of stress effects historix immunity was that of a reduction of antibody response to antigen as a result of group housing stress in rodents by Vessey and by Solomon s.

Thyroid hormones may stimulate NK activity, affect T hishoria development, and modulate the affect of cytokines on immune cells They showed that immune activation antigenic stimulation triggers the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal HPA axis in an immunoregulatory role. NK cell activity is higher in the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle which should influence surgeons in the timing psiconeuronmunologia cancer surgery in pre-menopausal women.

Latent virus activation occurs in depression. The pxiconeuroinmunologia is usually referred to as psychoneuroimmunology or “PNI”. By its very nature, psychoneuroimmunology bridges the traditional disciplines of psychiatry, psychology, neurology, endocrinology, immunology, neuroscience, internal medicine, and even surgery wound healing. Social support can ameliorate stress effects. Fund for Psychoneuroimmunolgy, There is some evidence that chronic fatigue syndrome, CFSwhich may occur following a viral infection, physical exhaustion, or psychological stress and which may be accompanied by depression, is related to inappropriate psiconeuroinmunoolgia signaling as if there were infection, and elevated levels of IL-1 have been reported The classes of evidence for CNS-immune interaction, some of which have been mentioned, include: There is much confirmation of earlier work on stress effects on viral and bacterial including mycobacterial infections in experimental animals.


There have been a number of claims, largely based on historla evidence, that schizophrenia is viral or post-viral in etiology These many, varied, and generally inconsistent findings, possibly reflective of subtypes of schizophrenia, are hard to interpret. Alcohol inhibits production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, reduces NK cell activity and suppresses B and T cell immunity. More modern work has suggested immunopathology of neurotransmitter receptors, both serotonergic and dopaminergic.

Emotional and personality factors in the psiconeuroinmunooogia and course of autoimmune disease, particularly rheumatoid arthritis.

There are a variety of categories of evidence–experimental psiconeuroinmunllogia naturalistic, basic and clinical, animal and human, in vitro and in vivo, medical and psychiatric–for bi-directional communication between the central nervous system and various components of the immune system.


Abnormalities in cytokine production, particularly of IL-2, have been found. The most definitive early research in psychoneuroimmunology, largely overlooked in the West, was that of Korneva and Khai working in then-Leningrad. Many experimental and clinical gistoria in human and animals have shown this cell type to be sensitive to influence in numbers and activity by stressors and psychosocial factors.

Handbook of Human Stress and Immunity. The cell likely is an activated T cell. Wistar and Haldemann found that the same stress prolonged the retention of homografts.

Although HIV-seronegative heroin addicts generally have reduced immune functions, persons maintained on methadone in a state of steady tolerance have normal immunity. Brain Research Thus, psychoneuroimmunology provides a scientific basis for the practice of humanistic medicine. The topic of immunologic abnormalities that occur in conjunction with major mental illnesses needs to be divided between those associated with depression affective disorders and with schizophrenia, a much more muddled area of research.

History Ancient and pre-modern wisdom reflected awareness of body-mind bi-directional interaction. The scientific foundations of psychoneuroimmunology are the subjects of a compilation of historical papers, a few of which will be cited 9.

The psychologist Robert Ader coined the term in the late ‘s, but it is also known by the equally ponderous terms neuroimmunomodulation and, less commonly, as neuroendocrinoimmunology or behavioral immunology.

Production of IL-1 is facilitated by slow-wave sleep. Brain, Behavior, and Immunity 9, Anxious symptoms influence delayed-type hypersensitivity skin test in subjects devoid of any psychiatric morbidity. The two systems mediating interaction with the environment, the central nervous and immune systems, communicate with each other and, as stated, can be thought of as a single integrated system for adaptation and defense.


Interdisciplinary collaboration is generally essential and intrinsic to its research. Teleologically, it makes sense that these two systems should be linked. Exercise can affect immunity positively or negatively Inthey reported that destructive electrolytic lesions in the dorsal hypothalamus of rabbits led to a suppression of the development of complement-fixing antibodies and prolonged retention of antigen in the blood.

Hypothalamic neurons fire in spatial and sequential ways after antigen administration, and HPA axis is activated by antigen and pro-inflammatory cytokines in a stress-like way. In perhaps the most intriguing observation of this period, it was found that physically healthy relatives of patients with rheumatoid arthritis who had in their sera the autoantibody characteristics of that disease, rheumatoid factor anti-immunoglobulin Gwere better adjusted psychologically, on average, than those lacking the factor, suggesting that psychological well-being might have a protective influence in the face of a genetic vulnerability 5.

Other psychoative drugs often have immune effects. It is noteworthy that depression is associated not only with immunosuppression but with signs of immune activation such as lymphocyte cell surface activation markers like HLA-DR.

The combination of exercise and severe food restriction found in patients with anorexia nervosa leads as in experimental animals to morbid immunosuppression. Academic Press, San Diego.

A pessimistic explanatory style correlated with lower measures of cell-mediated immunity Both relate the organism to the outside world and assess its components as harmless or dangerous; both serve functions of defense and adaptation; both possesses memory and learn by experience; both contribute to homeostasis; errors of defense by each can produce illness, e.

Explanatory style and cell-mediated immunity in elderly men and women.
