PMID:  9230174     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The effect of psychologic variables (situational emotional state and psychiatric diagnosis) and physiologic variables (plasma norepinephrine, decreased cardiac exercise capacity, and elevated pulmonary capillary wedge pressure) on natural killer cell activity was evaluated in 19 patients with advanced heart failure of ischemic or idiopathic origin. Only peak exercise capacity was independently predictive of natural killer cell deficiency.
