Abstract
Immunophenotyping by dual parameter flow cytometry was used to compare the expression of interleukin-2 receptor alpha and beta chains on lymphocyte subsets in the peripheral blood of 7 trained and 6 untrained volunteers. Venous blood samples were collected at least 36h after the most recent exercise session. The trained subjects had higher circulating counts of total leukocytes, granulocytes and NK cells, but lower lymphocyte counts than their sedentary peers. Counts for T cells and B cells and the CD4 (+)/CD8(+) ratio did not differ between the two subject groups.
