Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Endocrine and hormonal status may regulate immune cells. Adaptive immune responses driven by B and T cells may be modulated by several factors including hormonal status. Metabolic hormones, sex hormones, homeostatic regulation hormones may not play crucial roles on adaptive responses but their modulation may explain several immunological findings. Understanding the bridge between endocrine and immune systems will shed light to several immunological mysteries. 

This topic is aimed to elucidate different ways clinical endocrine status milieu may potentiate, suppress, or simple modulate adaptive immune cells, inflammation, and immune responses.

We welcome the submission of Original and Review articles. The scope of this collection may include:

  • Sex-Steroids (Estrogens, Progesterone and Androgens) on T and B cell biology
  • Stress response and glucocorticoids
  • Prolactin, growth hormone and Glucocorticoids on thymic development
  • Thyroid hormones on T and B cell biology
  • Immunity during lactation, gestation and neonatal development
  • Endocrine modulation of immune cells during autoimmunity and immune mediated diseases
