The effects of exertional heatstroke and exercise-heat acclimation on plasma beta-endorphin concentrations.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION It has been suggested that a proopiomelanocortin peptide beta-endorphin may play an important role in temperature regulation and therefore have specific heat stroke response patterns. METHODS The purpose of this study was to examine the response patterns of plasma beta-endorphin at baseline, during a 7-d exercise-heat acclimation period (HA… (More)
