It is thought that the involvement of common mediators such as corticotrophin releasing hormone (CRR), cytokines, prostaglandins (PG's), pituitary peptides and glucocorticoids allows the integration of immune and neuroendocrine activity during the acute phase response (APR) to injury and infection. Glucocorticoids are the major inhibitory component within this complex system, which has been termed the immunehypothalamic- pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. In the past, lipocortin-1 (LC-1) has been implicated as a "second messenger" of glucocorticoid actions. The present study explored this potential role for LC-l in relation to the immune-HPA axis.
