ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to determine the effects of high-intensity endurance exercise on skin immunity by estimating secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA) and staphylococci on skin surface. Seven healthy adult males (age; 22.3 ± 2.0 years) performed bicycle exercise at 75%HRmax for 60 min from 20:30 to 21:30. SIgA was obtained from 1 mL extraction liquids stirred with the microtube homogenizer in the open end of a polypropylene tube for 60 s. SIgA concentrations were measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Staphylococci were harvested by pressed agar-based media against skin surface. Skin surface samples were collected from the chest and the forearm on the first day at 20:30 (before rest; A1), 21:30 (after rest; A2), 22:30 (after showering; A3), the next morning at 7:00 (A4), and on the second day at 20:30 (before exercise; B1), 21:30 (after exercise; B2), 22:30 (after showering; B3), and the next morning at 7:00 (B4). SIgA concentration on the forearm was significantly lower at B2 (p < 0.05) and B3 (p < 0.05) than that at B1, and that on the chest at B1 tended to be higher compared with B2 (p = 0.084) and B3 (p = 0.075). The number of staphylococci was significantly higher at B2 than that at B1 (p < 0.01) and B4 (p < 0.01) on the forearm. We conclude that high-intensity endurance exercise might depress immune function and enhance infectious risk on skin surface. Coaches should encourage their athletes to take a shower and change into clean clothes immediately after sports activities and athletes should maintain a clean skin surface to decrease the infectious risk on skin surface.
