These proceedings focus on different areas of research, with special emphasis on relating the state of the art (basic) neuroimmunomodulation research to its potential practical application in specific fields. Among these, the role of pro-and anti-inflammatory cytokines in the central nervous system; peripheral mechanisms of neuroimmunomodulation; behavioural studies and immunity; and neuroimmunomodulation correlates in autoimmune disease represent areas of particular interest. Also highlighted are studies related to the role of melatonin as an immunomodulatory hormone (an area of explosive growth), as well as the emerging field of neuroendocrine regulation of haematopoiesis. Clinical studies in cancer, allergy, AIDs and other infectious diseases will focus upon neuroimmunomodulation-based mechanisms, and suggest new therapeutic approaches.
