- Physical exercise is a stressor to the immune system. Leukocytes and the neutrophils toward lymphocytes ratio (NLR) can be used to determine the status of immunity. This study aims to see the difference in the number of leukocytes, neutrophils, lymphocytes, and NLR on maximal physical exercise. This research was a laboratory experimental study by using the post test-only control group design to 10 adult males of white mice (Mus musculus) divided into two groups, five mice for the treatment group and five mice for control group. The treatment group was given maximal physical exercise through swimming until visible signs of fatigue were seen, and control group only kept immersed in the water for 20 minutes. The number of leukocytes was assessed by using Improved Neubauer chamber cell counting and NLR was calculated by comparing the number of neutrophils to lymphocytes. The result and statistical analysis using unpaired t-test showed significant differences were found in the leukocyte count (p = 0,000), while NLR was not found its significant difference (p = 0.464). In comclusion, it was found that the number of leukocytes was higher on the treatment group whereas the NLR was not significantly found difference.
