Mucosal immune responses during court training in elite tetraplegic athletes
Spinal Cord,

This contrasts responses previously observed in able–bodied athletes. The disruption of the sympathetic nervous system may prevent the downregulation of secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA) secretion rate following intense exercise, which is a response previously observed in able–bodied athletes.
