In this study, G, A and M immunoglobulins, the acute phase proteins: alpha 1-antitrypsin, haptoglobin and ceruloplasmin, as well as the zones of protein electrophoresis were quantified in 153 sportschildren of high performance and in 140 apparently sound children with normal physical activity according to their age, in order to look for variations in these parameters with permanent character due to the systematic practice of intensive physical exercises. Of the dosified immunoglobulins only IgM was significantly elevated, whereas the alpha 2 zone was diminished among sportschildren. Differences were found neither in the actue phase proteins dosified for both groups nor in the quantified total proteins.
