The proposed study will test efficacy of HMB in free acid gel to decrease muscle damage, improve muscle strength, and diminish the inflammatory response following an acute exercise stress. HMB in a free acid gel or in CaHMB capsule form will be administered as either a single dose before a bout of acute exercise or in multiple doses (one before and three daily doses for the 3 days following the acute exercise). We hypothesize that HMB in free acid gel will result in less muscle damage, diminished inflammatory response, and improved muscle strength recovery than either a placebo or CaHMB treatment following a bout of acute eccentric exercise. Our endpoints will include measurements of: (1) markers for muscle damage (CPK and LDH); (2) muscle strength and soreness; (3) indicators of inflammation (CRP, TNF-α, IL-6, IL-1ra and IL-18).

A pentacyclic triterpene that occurs widely in many PLANTS as the free acid or the aglycone for many SAPONINS. It is biosynthesized from lupane. It can rearrange to the isomer, ursolic acid, or be oxidized to taraxasterol and amyrin.
A ceramidase subtype that is active at acid pH. It plays an important role in sphingolipid degradation by catalyzing the lysosomal hydrolysis of ceramide to sphingosine and free fatty acid. Inherited deficiency of acid ceramidase activity results in FARBER LIPOGRANULOMATOSIS.
Healthy People Programs are a set of health objectives to be used by governments, communities, professional organizations, and others to help develop programs to improve health. It builds on initiatives pursued over the past two decades beginning with the 1979 Surgeon General's Report, Healthy People, Healthy People 2000: National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives, and Healthy People 2010. These established national health objectives and served as the basis for the development of state and community plans. These are administered by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). Similar programs are conducted by other national governments.
