men compared with that in women runners, and the level of these two
cytokines increased with increasing level of dietary fat. Plasma
interleukin-2 (IL-2) level (a cytokine involved in enhancing T cell
functions for host defense) was significantly higher in men compared with
that in women runners and decreased in men with increase dietary fat.
Plasma interleukin-6(IL-6) level was significantly lower after the
endurance run, and IL-6 levels decreased with increase in dietary fat.
CONCLUSIONS: Data from the present study suggest that dietary fat has
differential effects on plasma cytokine levels in runners. Increasing the
level of dietary fat significantly increased endurance run time and had no
adverse effects on the level of plasma IL-2 and pro-inflammatory cytokines
(IL-1 beta, IL-6 and TNF-alpha in runners.
