Heat shock protein 72 (HSP72) is the most inducible HSP, but is not always increased in lymphocytes following exercise. This field study examined whether lymphocyte HSP72 was increased in hyperthermic (Trec>39.0 °C) male athletes following a 14 km competitive race in cool conditions (ambient temperature 11.2 °C). A comparison was also made between control runners (n=7) and those treated for exertional heat illness (n=9). Lymphocyte HSP72 was not increased in control runners immediately post- compared with pre-race, and there was no difference between both groups of runners. A second study of the race (ambient temperature 14.6 °C) found that lymphocyte HSP72 in control (n=7) and treated (n=9) athletes was higher 2 days post- compared with immediately post-race (p<0.01) and these increases were correlated with post-exercise Trec (p<0.05). © 2007 Elsevier Ltd.
