The aim was to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis analyzing the impact of up to 24 h of prolonged sitting on postprandial glucose, insulin and triglyceride responses, blood pressure and vascular function, in comparison to sitting interrupted with light- to moderate-intensity physical activity.

Background and aims Sedentary lifestyles have recently been identified as potential mechanism for obesity and associated metabolic diseases linked to ill health. The aim of this study was to investiga...
Prolonged sitting contributes to cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. The underlying mechanisms are unknown, but may include changes in arterial function and vasoactive mediators. We examined the effect...
The aim of this study was to compare the effect of four hours of sitting interrupted with hourly bouts of standing and/or pedaling versus uninterrupted sitting on alertness and discomfort among sedent...
This study sought to examine if aerobic training status provides a protective effect against the lower limb vascular dysfunction associated with a prolonged sitting bout.
Total volumes of physical activity and sedentary behaviour have been associated with cardio-metabolic risk profiles; however, little research has examined whether patterns of activity (e.g., prolonged...
Prolonged sitting is a common behavior in contemporary humans. In epidemiological studies, increased sitting time has been associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease and all...
The purpose of this project is to investigate the effect of breaking prolonged sitting on acute adipose tissue and metabolic responses.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an individuals cardio-respiratory fitness level can protect them from the negative metabolic impacts of prolonged sitting time. Overall, ...
The effects of 12 hours of prolonged standing will be compared to prolonged standing on a high fat tolerance test the following day. Plasma triglycerides, insulin, and glucose will be meas...
Prolonged sitting has been shown to impair metabolism and vascular function. The overall purpose of this study is to determine if breaking up prolonged (9 hours) of sitting with brief (~20...
Persons who have experienced prolonged survival with or the following neoplastic disease and the impact of the disease on the individual, family members, and significant others.
A measurement of OXYGEN uptake in a sitting, resting person (resting oxygen consumption), varying with age, sex, race, and other factors. In normal adult men, one MET is approximately 3.5 ml O2/kg/min of body weight. Oxygen uptake during activities or work can be measured in METs which can be use to determine health status and exercise prescription.
A distinct vascular lesion in the PYLORIC ANTRUM that is characterized by tortuous dilated blood vessels (ectasia) radiating outward from the PYLORUS. The vessel pattern resembles the stripes on the surface of a watermelon. This lesion causes both acute and chronic GASTROINTESTINAL HEMORRHAGE.
The systematic identification and quantitation of all the metabolic products of a cell, tissue, organ, or organism under varying conditions. The METABOLOME of a cell or organism is a dynamic collection of metabolites which represent its net response to current conditions.
An acute or prolonged illness usually considered to be life-threatening or with the threat of serious residual disability. Treatment may be radical and is frequently costly.
Vascular relates to blood vessels (Oxford Medical Dictionary) and can be used to describe the supply of blood, a disease affecting the blood vessels or molecules associated with these structures. For example, <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->atherosclerosis ...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
