Indomethacin inhibits circulating PGE2 and reverses postexercise suppression of natural killer cell activity.


Natural killer (NK) cells are important in combating viral infections and cancer. NK cytolytic activity (NKCA) is often depressed during recovery from strenuous exercise. Lymphocyte subset redistribution and/or inhibition of NK cells via soluble mediators, such as prostaglandin (PG) E2 and cortisol, are suggested as mechanisms. Ten untrained (peak O2… (More)
