Figure 3: Reduced secretion of IL-6, TNF-α, and IL-1β from cultured whole blood ex vivo after yoga training. Whole blood was collected from 15 healthy participants at baseline and after yoga. Collected blood was diluted and cultured in 24-well plates under identical culture conditions. Supernatants were centrifuged and collected at 24 h for the measurement of IL-6, TNF-α, and IL-1β secretion via ELISA. Significant reduction in IL-6, TNF-α, and IL-1β secretion was seen after yoga, compared with the pre-yoga condition. Data are presented as mean + SEM *P < 0.05 versus preyoga training condition within the same treatment; #P < 0.05 versus control group at baseline level. IL: Interleukin, TNF: Tumor necrosis factor, SEM: Standard error of the mean. From Figure 3: Chen N, Xia X, Qin L, Luo L, Han S, Wang G, et al. Effects of 8-week Hatha yoga training on metabolic and inflammatory markers in healthy, female Chinese subjects: a randomized clinical trial.
