Fever occurs in response to a challenge with endotoxins via the release of endogenous pyrogens by systemic mononuclear phagocytes (Blatteis & Sehic, 2000).
Following administration of endotoxin, endogenous pyrogens, or prostaglandin, the febrile response in Brattleboro rats was not enhanced (Eagan, Kasting, Veale, & Cooper, 1982; Ruwe, Veale, & Cooper, 1988).
Also, further research is needed to determine whether an increase in AVP during dehydration affects the production of endogenous pyrogens.
