Design:Non-randomized study.Objective:To determine natural killer cell cytotoxic activity (NKCA) to 2-h arm ergometer exercise in persons with spinal cord injuries (SCI) and the underlying mechanism of such response.Setting:University of Occupational and Environmental Health, Japan.Methods:We examined NKCA response to 2-h arm crank ergometer exercise at 60% of maximum oxygen consumption (VO 2max) in SCI and able-bodied persons. NKCA and plasma concentrations of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2… CONTINUE READING
