Rest Placebo Fermented milk
Serum hsCRP (ng·mL-1) 88.9 ± 11.7 113.6 ± 22.1 79.3 ± 10.6
Serum TNF-α (pg·mL-1) 0.161 ± 0.002 0.166 ± 0.001 0.170 ± 0.004
Serum carbonyl protein (nmol·mg-1) 0.086 ± 0.003 0.089 ± 0.004 0.096 ± 0.003

Values are represented as mean ± standard error for 12 subjects (hsCRP and TNF-α), 18 subjects (carbonyl protein), and 13 subjects (8-OHdG). The trials analyzed include: rest, rest with placebo intake; placebo, exercise with placebo intake; fermented milk, exercise with fermented milk intake. hsCRP, high sensitivity C-reactive protein; TNF-α, tumor necrosis factor alpha; 8-OHdG, 8-hydroxydeoxyguanosine.
