For their study, the researchers collected the Synovial fluid and serum samples from knee joints of 6 healthy leisure runners aged from 18 to 35, before and after they ran for 30 minutes. The results showed that the cytokines GM-CSF and IL-15 that cause inflammation decreased in levels after running and remained at the same level in a non-running state.
