Relationship between C-reactive protein concentration and cytokine responses to exercise in healthy and illness-prone runners

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

Description

Differences in the immune and inflammatory response to exercise between healthy and illness-prone athletes may be one explanation why some athletes experience a greater incidence of upper respiratory symptoms than others. The aim of this study was to compare the C-reactive protein (CRP) response to acute exercise between healthy and illness-prone trained distance runners. Runners were classified as healthy (≤2 episodes of upper respiratory symptoms per year; n = 10) or illness-prone (≥4...[Show more]
