Vasopressin: a homeostatic effector in the febrile process

Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews
N W KastingK E Cooper


This review compares the physiological changes which accompany infection and fever with the effects of the peptide, arginine vasopressin (AVP). AVP may act as a neuromodulator, a releasing factor, or a hormone to induce responses which are opposite to those homeostatic changes accompanying fever. Since AVP is released into blood and brain during fever, it is hypothesized that AVP contributes to the maintenance of homeostasis in the infected organism.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
