  1. CMV+ subjects (n = 13) and CMV- subjects (n = 7). Medians and range are shown. Paired analysis was peformed separately for CMV+ and CMV- subjects before and after excersise. Statistical significance by Wilcoxon signed rank test is indicated as *p < 0.05 or **p < 0.01
  2. aChanges in plasma volumes estimated according to Dill and Costill were not significantly different between CMV+ and CMV- subjects
