This is an updated overview of a rapidly developing area of investigation dealing with the role of neuropeptides in immunoregulatory processes. It includes pertinent information obtained in invertebrates, which has considerably advanced our knowledge of the role of opioid neuropeptides, especially in another activity of the immune system, that of autoregulation. The study and interpretation of the remarkable parallelisms between these phenomena observed in invertebrates and vertebrates bring new insight into the mechanisms of neuroimmunobiological integration with both general biological and clinical implications.
