Table 2 Plasma cytokine concentration in experimental groups.

From: Effect of oat bran on time to exhaustion, glycogen content and serum cytokine profile following exhaustive exercise

(pg/ml) C EX EX-O
IL-6 11.2 ± 17 163 ± 2.7* 127 ± 3.6*#
IL-10 50.5 ± 9.4 328.5 ± 78* 84.3 ± 53.4*#
TNF-a 31.1 ± 1.34 5.58 ± 1.0* 2.6 ± 0.4*
  1. Values are presented as mean ± standard error of the mean. Control (C), exhaustion (EX) and exhaustion treated with oat bran (EXO) groups, (n = 9), p ≤ 0.05. IL-6 = interleukin-6; IL-10 = interleukin-10; TNF-a = Tumor necrosis factor-a. *Statistically significant difference compared with C group; #statistically significant difference compared with EX group.
