Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a Special Issue from the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, entitled "How Physical Activity Affects the Immune System". Physical activity is essential for maintaining our health, with important effects on the immune system. Thus, studies that seek to understand how these effects occur are essential.

All papers will be published with full open access after peer review.

We would like to invite you to contribute your work on topics that include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Effect of physical activity (or exercise training) on the immune response to infections;
  2. Vigorous exercise, overtraining, and vulnerability to opportunistic infections;
  3. Effect of physical activity and exercise training on vaccination;
  4. Effect of physical activity and lifestyle on chronic noncommunicable diseases.

Dr. Patrícia Maria Lourenço Dutra
Dr. Juliana Pereira Borges
Dr. Silvia Amaral Gonçalves Da Silva
