Investigating the cellular immune function of 20 Qigong training persons, 20 healthy old people, 20 chronic disease patients and 20 cancers by measuring T Iymphocytes subsets, soluble interleukin—2 receptor (SIL—2R) and beta—endorphine (beta—END), We found that the CD3+ Iymphocyte percentage and beta—END were obviously increased, but the SIL—2R was remarkably decreased between the Qigong training group and each control group. We also indicated following experimental results about the correlative statistics: (1) there was a positive correlation between beta—END and CD3+ Iymphocytes, (2) however, a negative correlation existed in beta—END and SIL—2R, (3) at the same time, the negative correlation was shosed in the SIL—2R and T Iymphocytes subsets.

From above studies, we could infer that the beta—END enhanced cellular immune function of Qigong training people by increasing T lymphocytes subsets and reducing SIL—2R.

Key words: Qigong training, cellular immune adjustment, T Iymphocyte subgroups, soluble interleukin-2 receptor, Beta—endorphine
