Morphine impairs host innate immune response and increases susceptibility to Streptococcus pneumoniae lung infection


, : Morphine impairs host innate immune response and increases susceptibility to Streptococcus pneumoniae lung infection. Journal of Immunology 174(1): 426-434

Chronic morphine use impairs host innate immune response and increases susceptibility to bacteria and virus. In this study a novel mouse model of chronic morphine treatment, followed by intranasal inoculation with Streptococcus pneumoniae, was used to investigate microbial events and host innate immune response.

We determined the effect of high-flow hypoxia and reoxygenation on myocardial function and O2 uptake. Isolated working rat hearts were subjected to a 30-min period of hypoxia (pO2 = 384, 296, 207 and 131 torr), followed by 30 min of reoxygenation...
