PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to investigate the changes occurring in leukocyte levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and total blood plasma antioxidant capacity (TAS) as a result of a marathon/half-marathon race. METHODS Fourteen men participating in the Oslo Marathon 2000 and 8 women and 8 men participating in the Oslo Half-Marathon 2001 were recruited to the study. Flow cytometry and the ROS-sensitive probe dihydroethidium (DHE) were used to study the intracellular levels of… CONTINUE READING
