|Abstract: ||An ever-growing volume of peer-reviewed publications speaks to the recent and
rapid growth in both scope and understanding of exercise immunology. Indeed,
more than 95% of all peer-reviewed publications in exercise immunology (currently
>2, 200 publications using search terms “exercise” and “immune”) have
been published since the formation of the International Society of Exercise and
Immunology (ISEI) in 1989 (ISI Web of KnowledgeSM). We recognise the epidemiological
distinction between the generic term “physical activity” and the specific
category of “exercise”, which implies activity for a specific purpose such as
improvement of physical condition or competition. Extreme physical activity of
any type may have implications for the immune system. However, because of its
emotive component, exercise is likely to have a larger effect, and to date the great
majority of our knowledge on this subject comes from exercise studies. [...continues].|
