Enhancing Adaptations to Exercise

Researchers are trying to understand how chronic inflammation affects muscle function and responses to exercise.They are also trying to determine if suppressing chronic inflammation using ...

Exercise Intervention in Targeting Adiposity and Inflammation With Movement to Improve Prognosis in Breast Cancer

This randomized phase II trial studies how well exercise intervention works in targeting adiposity and inflammation with movement to improve prognosis in stage I-III breast cancer survivor...

Mechanisms of Exercise-induced Bronchospasm

The term exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB) describes acute, transient airway narrowing that occurs during, and most often after, exercise. Manifestations of EIB can range from mild impai...

IL-6 in Exercise-Induced Anorexia

This study investigates the effect of high intensity exercise, with and without the inflammation inhibitor, ibuprofen, on plasma levels of IL-6 and other selective biomarkers of inflammati...

Physical Activity After Stroke: How Does it Effect Chronical Inflammation and Insulin Sensitivity

Decreased insulin sensitivity is and independent risk factor for stroke despite glycemic control. It is known that physical exercise increases insulin sensitivity in healthy subjects. Weth...

Attenuated strength gains during prolonged resistance exercise training in older adults with high inflammatory status.

Chronic systemic low grade inflammation is associated with the age-related loss of muscle mass. Resistance exercise has been suggested to reduce or lower chronic systemic low grade inflammation. Howev...

Effects of regular endurance exercise on GlycA: Combined analysis of 14 exercise interventions.

GlycA is a relatively new biomarker for inflammation as well as cardiometabolic disease risk. However, the effect of exercise on GlycA is largely unknown. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to e...

Resistance exercise modulates male factor infertility through anti-inflammatory and antioxidative mechanisms in infertile men: A RCT.

Inflammation and oxidative stress appear to be involved in the pathogenesis of male factor infertility. Exercise training has been shown to strengthen antioxidant defences and attenuate inflammation a...

Aerobic exercise inhibits obesity-induced respiratory phenotype.

Obesity results in decreased lung function and increased inflammation. Moderate aerobic exercise (AE) reduced lung inflammation and remodeling in a variety of respiratory disease models. Therefore, th...

Acute and chronic effects of exercise on the kynurenine pathway in humans - A brief review and future perspectives.

Tryptophan (TRP) is an essential amino acid. Metabolites of TRP have been identified as important mediators in immune regulation and function of the central nervous system. Inflammation strongly stimu...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.

Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.

Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).

Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.
