"We have seen that social mixing in mice helps them keep an ideal body temperature, which is crucial for a 'normal' physiological immune response to illness and infections. If we were to follow this idea in humans, prescribing social interactions, which is sometimes already done by doctors, has the potential to be beneficial not just for our mental wellbeing but also for our immunological wellness."
The team of researchers from Queen Mary ran a two-week programme consisting of housing two groups of mice - some socially isolated, and some with other mice. This was followed by the testing of immune-inflammatory resilience to bacterial sepsis.
