Thus they suppress the body's normal defense mechanisms. This has led to the suggestion that they prevent the normal responses to trauma from proceeding to a stage of producing tissue damage and threatening homeostasis. Endorphins are endogenous peptides with opiate-like biological activity. They are found in the brain in identical secretory granules of pituitary corticotropic cells along with ACTH and also elsewhere in the brain, pancreas, and gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The system is complex with at least three classes of opiate receptors and a number of endogenous peptides including methionine- and leucineen kephalin and alpha- and beta-endorphins.

In turn, CSF-1 can induce production of TNF from monocytes (Warren and Ralph 1986) suggesting an autocrine-amplification loop. Thus, activation of macrophage/monocytes can lead to the production of both stimulators and inhibitors of hematopoiesis and the production of such regulatory elements by monocytes is part of a highly interactive, even an auto reactive, network. The interaction of a homogeneous population of macrophages to some of the elements of this network is examined below. 1 % of total marrow cells, and thus cannot be readily studied in isolation or in number.

Howard, William B. Abbott, and Francis D. Moore. In a detailed series of metabolic studies, Moore traced the response from injury to recovery. Significant contributions in this field have also been made by Pope, Elkington, Ellman, Fox, Rhoads, Levinson, Lockwood, and Meyer; and more recently by Kinney and Gump, Shires, Wilmore, and Pruitt (Baue et al. 1984). An injury is followed by an acute phase of neuroendocrine stimulation that Moore called the "injury phase" (Table 1). Corticotropin (ACTH) and cortisol secretions increase, antidiuretic hormone is released, catecholamines and glucagon are increased, and aldosterone secretion increases in correspondence with acImmune Consequences of Trauma, Shock and Sepsis Eds.
