The Biochemistry of Bereavement: Possible Basis for Chemotherapy?
Fredrick, Jerome F.
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v13 n4 p295-303 1982-83
Reviews the physiological effect of acute grief and explores the increased susceptibility to infectious disease agents in terms of the altered biochemistry of the bereaved individual. Until basic reactions of grief are defined and the altered biochemistry established, psychological methods appear to offer the best therapy. (Author/JAC)
