I am a student at the University of Pittsburgh. I am working on a project
whose topic is the following:
What is the adaptive value/evolutionary rationale for the net suppression
of immune function in an organism exposed to STRESS?
I know that depending on the type and intensity of stress, as well as
latency before assaying of immune function, and other factors, the
immune response might actually be upregulated.
I would appreciate any comments, suggested readings, thoughts, etc. from
all you knowledgable Netpeople. thanks
