HALP I need an article/study

During my first years of graduate school - either in an intro class or in social epidemiology - I learned about a study that showed the effects of stress on physical health. In the research study, the researchers infused the influenza virus into the noses of two groups - one group suffering from chronic stress (or maybe depression) and the other group mentally healthy. Then they watched to see who got the flu. The stressed/depressed group were more likely to get the flu than the unstressed group.

Alas, I can no longer remember the authors' names, and going back through my archived class notes is yielding nothing of use. I'm trying to use this study as an example in a lecture I am giving to a psychology class, but I cannot find it! Anyone know what I'm talking about?
