COMMENT: Active crosstalk occurs between nociceptor neurons and the immune system to regulate pain, host defense, and inflammatory diseases. Dialog between nociceptor neurons and the immune system is a fundamental aspect of inflammation, both acute and chronic.

The line between the peripheral nervous and immune systems is blurred by new insights into neurogenic inflammation. Dense innervation network of sensory and autonomic fibers in peripheral tissues and high speed of neural transduction allows rapid local and systemic neurogenic modulation of immunity.
