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

Leicht CA et al. – Acute bouts of highly strenuous exercise do not have negative impacts on the mucosal immune response in tetraplegic athletes, nor do they influence the production of α–amylase, a marker of sympathetic nervous activity. 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.
