STRESS AND THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Immuno-autonomics is the idea that stress, managed by the brain’s autonomic nervous system or ANS, can drive immune activity and limit successful treatment. A deeper understanding of this complex system may offer new opportunities for the treatment of patients with autoimmune diseases.
This animation was created for Inmedix and was presented at the 2018 Annual Meeting of the American College of Rheumatology. The animation highlights the complex relationship between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems, and how the brain can regulate inflammatory activity via the parasympathetic vagus nerve.
‘‘Inmedix is pleased to highlight the cholinergic anti-inflammatory reflex in video format to encourage a broader recognition of potential immuno-autonomic clinical applications to improve the lives of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases.’’
