Cox, Amanda J; Pyne, David; Saunders, Philo U; Callister, R.J.; Gleeson, Maree


PURPOSE: To characterize differences in cytokine responses to exercise of different intensities and durations between healthy and illness-prone runners. METHODS: Trained distance runners were classified as healthy (no more than two episodes of upper-respiratory symptoms per year; N = 10) or illness-prone (four or more episodes per year; N = 8) and completed three treadmill tests: SHORT (30 min, 65% V̇O2max), LONG (60 min, 65% V̇O2max), and INTENSE (6 × 3 min, 90% V̇O2max). Blood samples were...[Show more]
