Leucocytes, cytokines and satellite cells: what role do they play in muscle damage and regeneration following eccentric exercise?
Exercise-induced muscle damage is an important topic in exercise physiology. However several aspects of our understanding of how muscles respond to highly stressful exercise remain unclear In theExpand

Characterization of inflammatory responses to eccentric exercise in humans.
Eccentric exercise commonly results in muscle damage. The primary sequence of events leading to exercise-induced muscle damage is believed to involve initial mechanical disruption of sarcomeres,Expand

Plasma cytokine changes in relation to exercise intensity and muscle damage
AbstractThe purpose of this study was to compare the effects of exercise intensity and exercise-induced muscle damage on changes in anti-inflammatory cytokines and other inflammatory mediators. NineExpand

Changes in inflammatory mediators following eccentric exercise of the elbow flexors.
The aims of this study were to examine the plasma concentrations of inflammatory mediators including cytokines induced by a single bout of eccentric exercise and again 4 weeks later by a second boutExpand

Exercise-induced muscle damage, plasma cytokines, and markers of neutrophil activation.
INTRODUCTION Unaccustomed eccentric exercise often results in muscle damage and neutrophil activation. We examined changes in plasma cytokines stress hormones, creatine kinase activity and myoglobinExpand

Muscle damage and inflammation during recovery from exercise.
Unaccustomed exercise consisting of eccentric (i.e., lengthening) muscle contractions often results in muscle damage characterized by ultrastructural alterations in muscle tissue, clinical signs, andExpand

Changes in markers of muscle damage, inflammation and HSP70 after an Ironman triathlon race
We investigated the effects of an Ironman triathlon race on markers of muscle damage, inflammation and heat shock protein 70 (HSP70). Nine well-trained male triathletes (mean ± SD age 34 ± 5 years;Expand
