Elizabeth Repasky Explains the Effect of Chronic Stress on Anti-Tumor Immune Responses

By Elizabeth Repasky, PhD
PUBLISHED THURSDAY, JANUARY 1, 1970

Elizabeth Repasky, PhD, Roswell Cancer Institute, discusses the effect chronic stress can have on the anti-tumor immune response.

Recent studies have been focusing on why chronic stress, such as anxiety and depression have an effect on the immune response. The molecular details are important, as are the role of the nerves, which are influenced by factors in the brain, like conscious thought. Repasky hopes that it will soon be possible to explore how to modify stress factors to improve the anti-tumor immune response.
