Resting plasma and salivary IL-6 concentrations are not correlated in distance runners

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


Measurement of IL-6 has been widely undertaken to examine inflammatory and immune responses to exercise. Use of salivary IL-6 offers an alternative to the invasive collection procedures required for IL-6 measurement in plasma samples. Rarely, however, has the degree of association between plasma and salivary IL-6 been reported. The aim of the current study was to investigate the relationship between resting salivary and plasma IL-6 concentrations in 45 trained distance runners (36 males, 9...[Show more]
