Method p.519 right column 2nd paragraph:"Complete blood count. Blood (4 ml) to be used for a complete blood count (CBC) was collected into a vacutainer tube containing EDTA (Vacutainer systems, Becton Dickinson) and analyzed by an automated hematology analyzer (Microdiff 16, Coulter, Miami, FL). Hemoglobin, hematocrit, and total lymphocyte concentration were obtained from the CBC analysis. B-lymphocyte concentration was calculated by multiplying the total lymphocyte concentration from the CBC by the percentage of B cells determined by immunocytochemistry and flow cytometry (Epics XL-MCL, Coulter). Hemoglobin and hematocrit data were used to measure the changes in plasma volume in response to exercise (ref 16)."
Comments p.521 left column 2nd paragraph:"Total Circulating Lymphocytes: The maximal exercise test significantly increased the total blood lymphocyte concentration by nearly threefold on average [F(1,7)=112.9, P<0.05 Table 1]. This increase was not seen in the blood of the resting, control subjects. Similarly, the B-lymphocyte subset of the total lymphocytes also increased significantly [F(1,7)=8.7, P<0.05 Table 1]. These increases remained significant even after the values were corrected for blood volume changes due to exercise (data not shown)."
