Sedentary Behavior and Chronic Disease: Mechanisms and Future Directions.

07:00 EST 3rd December 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Sedentary Behavior and Chronic Disease: Mechanisms and Future Directions."

Recent updates to physical activity guidelines highlight the importance of reducing sedentary time. However, at present, only general recommendations are possible (ie, "Sit less, move more"). There remains a need to investigate the strength, temporality, specificity, and dose-response nature of sedentary behavior associations with chronic disease, along with potential underlying mechanisms.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.

The observable response made to a situation and the unconscious processes underlying it.

Thrombocytopenia occurring in the absence of toxic exposure or a disease associated with decreased platelets. It is mediated by immune mechanisms, in most cases IMMUNOGLOBULIN G autoantibodies which attach to platelets and subsequently undergo destruction by macrophages. The disease is seen in acute (affecting children) and chronic (adult) forms.

A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.

A chronic systemic disease, primarily of the joints, marked by inflammatory changes in the synovial membranes and articular structures, widespread fibrinoid degeneration of the collagen fibers in mesenchymal tissues, and by atrophy and rarefaction of bony structures. Etiology is unknown, but autoimmune mechanisms have been implicated.
