Activation of granulocytes has been associated with normal immune function, inflammation, and exercise-induced muscle damage. The effect of intense interval running on granulocyte activation was examined by use of flow cytometry, monoclonal antibodies, and spectrophotometric techniques. Eight trained males [maximal oxygen uptake VO2max, mean (SD) = 64.4 (3.6) ml/kg/min; age 30.1 (4.8) years] undertook an intense interval exercise (treadmill running) protocol to exhaustion. Subjects completed an… CONTINUE READING
