Psychoneuroimmunoendocrinology, which was first described in 1936, is the study of the interactions between the psyche, neural and endocrine functions and immune responses. The aim of psychoneuroimmunoendocrinology is to apply medical knowledge to the treatment of different allergic, immune, autoimmune, rheumatic, neoplastic, endocrine, cardiovascular and dental pathologies, among other disorders. Epigenetic factors and major stresses from different types of stimuli acting through distinct pathways and neurotransmitters are highly involved in altering the psychoneuroimmunoendocrine axis, resulting in the emergence of disease...

The nervous system and the skin develop next to each other in the embryo and remain intimately interconnected and interactive throughout life. The nervous system can influence skin conditions through psychoneuroimmunoendocrine mechanisms and through behaviors. Understanding the pathophysiology aids in selection of treatment plans for correcting the negative effects of the psyche on specific skin conditions. Medication options include standard psychotropic medications and alternative herbs and supplements. Other options include biofeedback, cognitive-behavioral methods, hypnosis, meditation, progressive relaxation, the placebo effect, and suggestion...

Many dermatological disorders have a psychosomatic or behavioral aspect. Skin and brain continually interact through psychoneuroimmunoendocrine mechanisms and through behaviors that can strongly affect the initiation or flaring of skin disorders. It is important to consider these mind-body interactions when planning treatments for specific skin disorders in individual patients. Mind-influencing therapeutic options that can enhance treatment of skin disorders include standard psychotropic drugs, alternative herbs and supplements, the placebo effect, suggestion, cognitive-behavioral methods, biofeedback, and hypnosis...

Cramer et al. contrast two possible explanations for psychological symptoms: latent variables (i.e., specific cause) versus a network of causality between symptoms. There is a third explanation: The reason for comorbidity and the reported network structure of psychological symptoms is that the underlying biological cause is a psychoneuroimmunoendocrine information network which, when dysregulated, leads to several maladaptive psychological and somatic symptoms.

We review here our latest results regarding short- and long-term effects of a neonatal maternal deprivation (MD) stress [24h at postnatal day (PND) 9] on diverse psychoneuroimmunoendocrine parameters, pointing out the existence of numerous sexual dimorphisms. Behavioral changes observed in MD animals might be at least in part attributable to neurodevelopmental effects of MD-induced elevated corticosterone levels. Our findings of short-term effects of MD on hippocampal and cerebellar neurons and glial cells appear to support this hypothesis...

BACKGROUND: The skin and the brain interact through psychoneuroimmunoendocrine mechanisms and through behaviors that can strongly influence the initiation or flaring of skin disorders. OBJECTIVE: To obtain knowledge of these factors to assist in designing treatment plans for specific skin disorders. METHODS: Psychocutaneous disease literature for the past 80 years was reviewed. RESULTS/CONCLUSION: Therapeutic options include standard psychotropic drugs and alternative herbs and supplements, the placebo effect, suggestion, cognitive-behavioral methods, biofeedback, and hypnosis...

Exercise has been widely believed to be a preventive and therapeutic aid in the treatment of various pathophysiological conditions such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. A common problem associated with such pathologies is cachexia, characterized by progressive weight loss and depletion of lean and fat body mass, and is linked to poor prognosis. As this syndrome comprises changes in many physiological systems, it is tempting to assume that the modulation of the psychoneuroimmunoendocrine axis could attenuate or even prevent cachexia progression in cancer patients...

A system of individual immunotherapy is proposed which is based on the selection of an immunomodulator maximally suitable for the patients' immune system which is the therapeutic measure directed to the stimulation of forming the functional adaptive CNS dominant adequate to the pathological focus--the main component of sanogenesis in neuroanimatologic patients representing a complex of psychoneuroimmunoendocrine connections of the organism. As a result of immunotherapy the adequate adaptive CNS dominant makes concrete effector adaptive functional systems, determines the rate and sequence of the course of the adaptive reactions...

The paper shows the formation of immunopathological syndromes in the cerebrospinal fluid in the victims with gunshot wounds in relation to the policy and outcome of treatment. Suturing the dura mater during a primary surgical treatment should be regarded as a protective process to limit antigen release, the development of immunological paralysis and autoimmunization. Deaths are caused by the neurogenic immune dysfunction induced by the inadequate functioning of the psychoneuroimmunoendocrine connections of the whole body...
