The granulocyte and monocyte phagocytosis and oxidative burst (OB) activity assay can be used to study the innate immune system. This manuscript provides the necessary methodology to add this assay to an exercise immunology arsenal. The first step in this assay is to prepare two aliquots ("H" and "F") of whole blood (heparin). Then, dihydroethidium is added to the H aliquot, and both aliquots are incubated in a warm water bath followed by a cold water bath. Next, Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is added to the H aliquot and fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled S...

An increase in salivary leukocytes may contribute to the exercise-induced increase in salivary antimicrobial proteins (AMPs). However, exercise-induced changes in salivary leukocytes have not been studied. The purpose of the study was to describe salivary leukocyte changes with exercise. Participants (n = 11, 20.3 ± 0.8 years, 57.2 ± 7.6 ml kg(-1) min(-1) peak oxygen uptake ((VO) ̇2peak), 11.1 ± 3.9% body fat) ran for 45 min at 75% of VO2peak. Stimulated saliva (12 mL) was collected pre- and immediately post exercise...

CD31(+) T-cells have been documented to possess vasculogenic properties, and have been termed 'angiogenic T-cells' (TANG ). No study to date has fully characterised the effect of acute exercise on TANG cells. Twelve male participants aged 24-45yrs undertook a running 10 km time trial, with peripheral blood samples taken pre-, immediately post- and 1-hour post-exercise for quantification of TANG cells and subsequent CXCR4 cell surface expression by flow cytometry. TANG cells demonstrated a 102% increase in number in peripheral circulation immediately post-exercise compared to pre-exercise levels, followed by a large egress (50%) from the circulation in total TANG cells 1-hour post-exercise...

PURPOSE: Compare capillary and venous blood in the analysis of concentration and function of leucocyte sub-populations. This study hypothesised that capillary samples may be used in a site-specific manner as an alternative source of blood samples for assays of leucocyte concentration and neutrophilic phagocytic function and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, allowing acquisition of multiple samples to better monitor transient but significant post-exercise immune modulation. METHODS: Resting blood samples were simultaneously obtained from vein, finger and earlobe of healthy subjects (n = 10, age: 25...

Circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) contribute to vascular homeostasis and are fewer in those with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) compared with normal glucose tolerance (NGT), suggesting a link between EPCs and T2DM-associated vasculopathies. The purpose of this study was to assess EPC number and mobilization by acute submaximal exercise in older adults with NGT, impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) or T2DM. We tested the hypothesis that EPC mobilization is lower in IGT compared with NGT and further reduced in older adults with T2DM...

INTRODUCTION: High-intensity interval training (HIT) exercise has gained much interest in both performance and recreational sports. This study aims to compare the effect of HIT versus continuous (CONT) exercise with regard to changes of circulating T cells and progenitor cells. METHODS: Subjects (n = 23) completed an HIT test and an isocaloric CONT test. Blood samples were collected before, immediately after, and 3 and 24 h postexercise for the assessment of low differentiated (CD3CD28CD57), highly differentiated T cells (CD3CD28CD57), regulatory T cells (Tregs) (CD4CD25CD127), hematopoietic progenitor cells (CD45CD34), and endothelial progenitor cells (CD45CD34KDR) by flow cytometry...

Understanding the impact of training sessions on the immune response is crucial for the adequate periodization of training, to prevent both a negative influence on health and a performance impairment of the athlete. This study evaluated acute systemic immune cell changes in response to an actual swimming session, during a 24-h recovery period, controlling for sex, menstrual cycle phases, maturity, and age group. Competitive swimmers (30 females, 15 ± 1.3 years old; and 35 males, 16.5 ± 2.1 years old) performed a high-intensity training session...

UNLABELLED: Obesity is a low-grade chronic inflammation condition, and macrophages, and possibly monocytes, are involved in the pathological outcomes of obesity. Physical exercise is a low-cost strategy to prevent and treat obesity, probably because of its anti-inflammatory action. We evaluated the percentage of CD16(-) and CD16(+) monocyte subsets in obese insulin-resistant individuals and the effect of an exercise bout on the percentage of these cells. Twenty-seven volunteers were divided into three experimental groups: lean insulin sensitive, obese insulin sensitive and obese insulin resistant...

Caffeine is the most widely used neurostimulant in the world. There is considerable debate on its effect on immune cells as it has been shown to antagonize adenosine receptors (ARs), which mediate an anti-inflammatory switch in activated immune cells. A second target is phosphodiesterase, where it acts as an inhibitor. If the primary effect of caffeine on mononuclear phagocytes were to antagonize ARs we would expect cells exposed to caffeine to have a prolonged proinflammatory response. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects and mechanism of action of caffeine in mononuclear phagocytes...

We present a case of a 65-year-old Hispanic man with a history of disseminated cutaneous coccidioidomycosis who presented to the emergency room for progressively worsening abdominal pain associated with shortness of breath. The patient was found to have pleural effusion and moderate ascites on physical examination. Abdominal ultrasound and computed tomography scan were consistent with moderate ascites and portal hypertension but negative for both liver cirrhosis and for venous or arterial thrombosis. Cytology of ascitic fluid was suggestive of portal hypertension and was negative for infection...

PURPOSE: Erythropoietin is responsible for regulating the growth and development of red blood cells. Reports conflict on whether skeletal muscle is able to produce erythropoietin and release it into circulation and if exercise affects this. We set out to determine how erythropoietin is regulated in skeletal muscle and to determine whether skeletal muscle-derived erythropoietin can stimulate erythropoiesis. METHODS: Using an in vitro approach, we exposed proliferating and differentiated skeletal muscle cells to various forms of exercise-induced physiological stimuli and measured erythropoietin gene expression...

Atypical chronic myeloid leukemia (aCML) is a hematopoietic stem/progenitor cell disorder, predominantly involving neutrophils. At present, a limited number of studies regarding the treatment of aCML have been published, and the therapies that are currently available exhibit unsatisfactory outcomes. In the present study, the cases of two aCML patients treated with decitabine (DCA) therapy who achieved remission are presented. A 48-year-old male, who presented with fatigue and a cough that had lasted two months, and a 69-year-old male who presented with dizziness, fatigue and shortness of breath with exercise, were diagnosed with aCML following bone marrow examination, flow cytometry and chromosome banding analysis...

In order to investigate the promoting effect of low-intensity treadmill exercise on rat dorsal wound healing and the mechanism, 20 Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into two groups: exercise group (Ex) and non-exercise group (non-ex). The rats in Ex group were given treadmill exercise for one month, and those in non-ex group raised on the same conditions without treadmill exercise. Both groups received dorsal wound operation with free access to food and water. By two-week continuous observation and recording of the wound area, the healing rate was analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Inflammation is the driving force in atherosclerosis. One central strategy in the treatment of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is the promotion of angiogenesis. Here, proangiogenic Tie-2 expressing monocytes (TEM) and circulating angiogenic cells (CAC) play a crucial role. Exercise training (ET) is recommended in PAD patients at Fontaine stage II to promote angiogenesis. METHODS: 40 patients with intermittend claudication (IC) [2 groups: supervised ET (SET) vs...

Stress-inducible Hsp72 is a potential biomarker to track risk of exertional heat illness during exercise/environmental stress. Characterization of extracellular (eHsp72) vs cellular Hsp72 (iHsp72) responses is required to define the appropriate use of Hsp72 as a reliable biomarker. In each of four repeat visits, participants (n = 6 men, 4 trials; total n = 24): (a) passively dehydrated overnight, (b) exercised (2 h) with no fluid in a hot, humid environmental chamber, (c) rested and rehydrated (1 h), (d) maximally exercised for 0...
