Abstract/OtherAbstract:
CONCLUSION: The results suggest that oestrogen and treadmill exercise are associated with greater apoptosis, as measured by caspase-3 activity, in the thymus but not in the spleen or lymph nodes. Clinical studies will be necessary to determine if women who take oestrogen have higher rates of apoptosis in primary lymphoid tissues and the significance of thymocyte apoptosis for maintenance of cellular immune function during the post-menopausal years.
