Effects of Behavioral Stimuli on Plasma Interleukin-1 Activity in Humans at Rest.
Keppel, William H.; And Others
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v49 n6 p777-89 Nov 1993
Performed Interleukin-1 (IL-1) bioassays on 208 serum samples from seven volunteers at 5-minute intervals before, during, and after relaxation-related behavioral stimulus. Individuals showed up to 267% increase in IL-1, and for group mean, 48.1% elevation occurred, during stimulus interval relative to baseline. Such changes in plasma IL-1, concomitant with stimuli, indicate new way to alter immune function. (Author/NB)
