These conditions are associated with many elements of inflammation and autoimmunity. Cytokines and chemokines initiate and propagate the inflammatory/ immune response in these pathologies. In MS there is continuous realignment and redundancy in the inflammatory and immune responses [106–109]. Cytokines also have behavioral effects [110,111]. By now it is clear that there is much more to these systems than simply sharing cytokines and other mediators. It is now apparent that the neuroendocrine and immune systems do not only interact, but rather these organ systems rely on each other for mutual support both in health and in disease.

Here vasopressin has emerged as a key neuropeptide that promotes adaptive immunocompetence and stimulates the anabolic hormones, growth hormone, and prolactin. These observations imply that vasopressin is involved with recovery and healing from acute illness [120]. Evidence is mounting rapidly that the immune system is involved in physiological processes such as mammalian reproduction, the function of the CNS, and of endocrine organs, the gastrointestinal system, and indeed, of all tissues and organs in the body.

The hypersensitivity is relatively transient; no anamnestic response is apparent, and the histamine and serotonin sensitivity is not transferable by lymphoid cells or serum, the classical agents of the immune response. Some investigators [39,40] have suggested that the pertussis-induced sensitivity might be the result of an impairment in the normal rapid detoxification of histamine and serotonin. In our experiments, however, no change in the excretion pattern of C-14 serotonin or C-14 histamine or their metabolic products could be detected.
