Position statement. Part one: Immune function and exercise.
An ever-growing volume of peer-reviewed publications speaks to the recent and rapid growth in both scope and understanding of exercise immunology. Indeed, more than 95% of all peer-reviewedExpand

The cytokine response to strenuous exercise.
Several groups have now investigated the cytokine response to strenuous exercise. In this article we try to summarize known data on this topic. Significant, albeit mild increases in plasma levels ofExpand

HSP expression in human leukocytes is modulated by endurance exercise.
PURPOSE Temperature increase, oxidative stress, and inflammatory reactions after endurance exercise were expected to stimulate the synthesis of heat shock proteins (HSP) in peripheral bloodExpand

Exercise intensity and duration affect blood soluble HSP72.
Soluble heat shock protein 72 (sHSP72) is suggested to play a role as a signalling molecule in the immune response to exercise. We were interested in whether duration and intensity of enduranceExpand

Phenotype, donor age and gender affect function of human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells
BackgroundMesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are attractive for cell-based therapies ranging from regenerative medicine and tissue engineering to immunomodulation. However, clinical efficacy isExpand

Transcriptional and translational regulation of heat shock proteins in leukocytes of endurance runners.
Heat shock proteins (HSP) represent cell-protective and antioxidant systems that may be induced by reactive oxygen species, cytokines, and hyperthermia. In the present study, we evaluated theExpand

Impact of elevated ambient temperatures on the acute immune response to intensive endurance exercise
To date, there has been little research examining how elevated ambient temperatures exert an additional effect on the acute immune response to endurance exercise. Seven endurance-trained,Expand

Effect of exhaustive exercise stress on the cytokine response.
Fifteen athletes were investigated 24 h before, 1 h after, and 20 h after an exhaustive exercise stress test (mean duration 68 min). Testing for cytokines was done in serum, urine, and theExpand

Free radicals and oxidative stress in exercise--immunological aspects.
Reactive oxygen (ROS) and nitrogen species (RNS) are continuously generated in the biological system and play an important role in a variety of physiological and pathological processes. There isExpand
