PURPOSE:: We compared the effects of exercise intensity (EI) on the cytokine response to an acute bout of running. METHODS:: Ten males (mean ± 1SD VO2max: 56.2 ± 8.1 mL·min-·kg-) completed three, counterbalanced, 8-day trials. Following three control days, on Day 4, participants completed 60 min of running at 55%, 65% and 75% VO2max. The cytokines tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6 and IL-1 receptor antagonist (ra), and creatine kinase (CK) were measured during and for 3 h after exercise, and on four follow-up days (FU1-FU4). RESULTS:: Respiratory exchange ratio (RER) was higher at 75% VO2max compared with both 55% (P<0.001) and 65% (P<0.01) VO2max. IL-1β was undetectable in 6 participants. There was a small (18-27%) increase in TNF-a during exercise but no effect of EI. IL-6 concentrations peaked at the end of exercise, with a greater increase at 75% VO2max resulting in higher concentrations at the end of exercise and at 30 min post-exercise compared with 55% (P<0.001) and 65% VO2max (P<0.01). IL-1ra concentrations peaked at the end of exercise at 75% VO2max resulting in higher (P<0.05) concentrations at 1-2 h post-exercise compared with 55% and 65% VO2max. CK was increased at FU1 and FU2 but there was no effect of EI. CONCLUSIONS:: 60 min of treadmill running at 75% VO2max results in a greater increase in IL-6 but not TNF-α compared with 55% and 65% VO2max. The higher IL-1ra concentrations at 75% VO2max might be related to the higher IL-6 concentrations that precede them.
