Persistent Production of Hypoxanthine in Rat Skeletal Muscle Causes Prolonged Hyperuricemia after an Enhaustice Exercise
In our previous study on exercise-induced hyperuricemia in hunans, we reported that serum uric acid reaches a maximal level 1–2 h after an exhaustive exercise and then decreases subsequently, remaining a significant higher level even at 24 h (Ito et al., 1984). In men taking allopurinol beforehand, a similar impression give our recent results on plasma oxypurine levels, which showed maximal values after 1 h of the exercise and then decreased, keeping a significant higher levels than controls without the exercise at 7 h (Hadano et al., 1987).
