Anxiety and the immune system
|Title||Anxiety and the immune system: the modulation of benzodiazepines|
|Journal||Stress and Health: Journal of the International Society for the Investigation of Stress|
|Abstract||Reviews the interaction between anxiety and the immune system and modulating effects of benzodiazepines. Research indicates that anxiety induces immune-inflammatory changes pointing toward the complex regulatory responses in interleukin-6 signalling, decreased anti-inflammatory capacity of the serum, and interactions with T cell and monocytic activation. Experimental and clinical studies suggest that the central and peripheral benzodiazepine receptors together with their ligands form a network that contributes to the effects of anxiety on immune status.|
