Immune system as regulator of volume and blood pressure

It was found that the immune system regulates salt and water balance, and that tissue Na+ storage significantly boosts innate and adaptive immune responses. The finding has opened an entirely new perspective on immune function that extends ancient protection from invaders to physiological adaptation to environmental conditions and blood pressure control. 23Na magnetic resonance imaging methods were developed  for a rapid transfer of our basic research findings into the clinical arena.
