203. Handling Stress and Sample Storage Are Associated with Weaker Complement-Mediated Bactericidal Ability in Birds but Not Bats. (Abstract)

Handling Stress and Sample Storage Are Associated with Weaker Complement-Mediated Bactericidal Ability in Birds but Not Bats. Variation in immune defense influences infectious disease dynamics within and among species. Understanding how variation in immunity drives pathogen transmission among species is especially important for animals that are reservoir hosts for zoonotic pathogens. Bats, in particular, have a propensity to host serious viral zoonoses without developing clinical disease (...) themselves. The immunological adaptations that allow bats to host viruses without disease may be related to their adaptations for flight (e.g., in metabolism and mediation of oxidative stress). A number of analyses report greater richness of zoonotic pathogens in bats than in other taxa, such as birds (i.e., mostly volant vertebrates) and rodents (i.e., nonvolant small mammals), but immunological comparisons between bats and these other taxa are rare. To examine interspecific differences in bacterial

211. Oxidative stress involvement in psoriasis: a systematic review. (Abstract)

Oxidative stress involvement in psoriasis: a systematic review. Psoriasis is a skin chronic inflammatory disease with a complex aetiology. It is characterised by the imbalance of environmental, genetic, and immunologic factors. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) could damage the cell components. The antioxidant system defends the body against ROS; a malfunction of the antioxidant system, together with an increased production of ROS, is involved in the pathogenesis of several diseases (...) such as psoriasis. The purpose of this systematic review is to give an updated scenario about oxidative stress involvement in the psoriatic disease to identify useful biomarkers and to propose innovative therapies. A total of 28 studies were identified. Although several molecules were demonstrated being associated with psoriasis, only a little group resulted being eligible as disease biomarker [malonyldialdehyde (MDA), total oxidative stress, and oxidative stress index]. However, only MDA seems to be the best

212. Promotion- and prevention-focused coping: A meta-analytic examination of regulatory strategies in the work stress process. (Abstract)

Promotion- and prevention-focused coping: A meta-analytic examination of regulatory strategies in the work stress process. We provide a meta-analytic examination of the regulatory strategies that employees adopt to cope with different types of stressors in the workplace and how these strategies are linked to work and personal outcomes. Drawing from regulatory focus theory, we introduce a new taxonomy of promotion- and prevention-focused coping that complements the traditional taxonomy (...) of problem- and emotion-focused coping in the transactional theory of stress. In addition, we propose that challenge stressors tend to evoke promotion-focused coping, whereas hindrance stressors tend to evoke prevention-focused coping. As a pair of important coping mechanisms in the work stress process, promotion-focused coping is positively related to employees' job performance, job attitudes, and personal well-being, whereas prevention-focused coping is negatively related to these outcomes.

219. A meta-analysis of cortisol reactivity to the Trier Social Stress Test in virtual environments. (Abstract)

A meta-analysis of cortisol reactivity to the Trier Social Stress Test in virtual environments. Maladaptive responses to stressors can lead to poor physical and psychological health outcomes. Laboratory studies of stress induction commonly use the Trier Social Stress Test (TSST). The TSST has been shown to reliably induce a stress response, most commonly measured via cortisol reactivity. Recently, researchers have used virtual environment versions of the TSST (V-TSST) in place (...) Social Stress Test, TSST, and virtual reality. Thirteen studies were included in this meta-analysis after meeting the inclusion criteria of utilizing a V-TSST and having cortisol measurements at baseline and peak stress to assess cortisol reactivity. The standardized mean gain effect size was used.There was a medium average effect size (ESsg = 0.65) across all studies for increase in cortisol from baseline to peak measurement. Significant moderating effects were seen for participant age, sex
