Introduction: Fever-induced mild heat stress plays an important role in cellular responses. The best-known heat shock response is heat shock protein (HSP) secretion. We investigated the effect of mild heat stress on serum HSP70 levels and a possible association between the immune system and these molecules by applying a mild heat stress model using a thermal water bath.
