Variation in antiinfectious nonspecific resistance of the organism caused by cholinergic stimulation

Bulletin of Experimental Biology and Medicine Aims and scope


Cholinergic stimulation (acetylcholine, aceclidine, armin) is found to improve antiinfectious nonspecific resistance in mice. The effect depends on the dose of cholinomimetic (armin), is maximal during the first 18 hours of the infectious process, and is determined by serum antibacterial activity, lysozyme activity, and the function of neutrophils and natural killers.
