Abstract AIM: Intense and prolonged exercise greatly affects circulating cytokine levels. The purpose of this study was to investigate the possible changes in tumour necrosis factor -a (TNF-a), interleukin 6 (IL-6) and cortisol concentrations during and after prolonged exercise of constant and alternating intensity of the same duration and total work performed. METHODS: Ten male subjects underwent two main cycling exercise trials lasting one hour each. On one occasion, exercise intensity was alternated between 46.5±1.9\% of maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max ) for 40 s and 120\% of VO2max for 20 s, so that the mean intensity corresponded to 105\% of the lactate threshold. On the other occasion, exercise intensity was constant at 105\% of the lactate threshold. Levels of TNF-a, IL-6 after lipo polysaccharide (LPS) stimulation as well as cortisol were measured at rest, 30 and 60 minutes of exercise and 1 hour after. RESULTS: No significant differences were observed in TNF-a concentrations between the two exercise protocols (P= 0.75), but there was a significant time effect (P<0.01). TNF-a was increased in both groups from a resting value of 436.1±102.5 to 649.5±187.7 pg/mL (P<0.05) at the end of exercise and was subsequently decreased 1 hour post exercise to 305.9±78.8 pg/mL (P<0.01). No significant difference in IL-6 and cortisol concentrations was observed between the two exercise protocols (P=0.13, P=0.10 accordingly). CONCLUSION: In conclusion, prolonged constant and alternating intensity exercise of the same mean intensity and duration seemed to provoke similar changes in aspects of immune response in healthy subjects.
