Edited by experts in the field and summarizes the latest research in all disciplines, this reference is prepared an invaluable resource for physicians in treating stress disorders, neurologists, biomedical scientists, medical students and biomedical scientists working in the sector and companies pharmacology and biotechnologyKey sections of the contract, as with the release of neurotransmitters, hormone metabolism and neurogenesis in response to stressful stimuli, and the consequences of these factors on the immune system and the behavior of individuals in a row.

Stress – From molecules to behavior is a highly interdisciplinary approach, the stress of a neurological disease, a mobile medical, behavioral, immunologic e. This approach provides an overview of the molecular alterations of the nervous system in response to stress, the molecular basis of stress cognition and behavior changes, and explores the interaction between the nervous and immune systems when exposed to stress.

It ‘is well known that the stress response can lead to profound changes in behavior and physiological changes in the nervous system and the immune system, said Professor publisher Hermana Soreq of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Adverse Consequences of the stress response is a common health problem in many societies, but the study of the molecular basis that drives the changes induced by stress opens the possibility of more targeted therapeutic approaches.

To make this discovery, the researchers studied two groups of mice with a severe infection caused by surgery, which mimics appendicitis in humans. Mice receiving the DP-1 blocking antibodies had a higher survival rate than mice that received the control antibody active. The results show that the PD-1 inhibits the ability of the immune system to fight infections by suppressing the function of immune cells.

Thus, blocking PD-1 can restore the capacity of the host to fight infections, it also helps to improve the chances of survival.
