Gene - Exercise Research Study

2014-08-27 03:19:23 | BioPortfolio


The investigators hypothesize that the degree to which older generally healthy but sedentary men and women improve a number of cardiovascular (CV) disease risk factors with 6 months of highly-standardized endurance exercise training will be a function of common genetic variations in candidate genes.

The Relationship Between Exercise Frequency, Intensity, and Restoration of Cardiometabolic Health

Regular physical activity is well established to decrease the risk of cardiometabolic diseases, however these beneficial effects are largely dependent on the type of exercise protocol cond...

To document the role of the genotype in the cardiovascular and metabolic responses to aerobic exercise-training and the contribution of inherited factors in the changes brought about by re...

Predictors of Individual Training Effectiveness in Preventive Exercise

Physical exercise elicits beneficial changes in the body. These concern physical performance but also improvements in virtually all known risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Yet, the ...

Effects of Training Intensity on the CHD Risk Factors in Postmenopausal Women

The purpose of this research is to find out whether training at different exercise intensities reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) to a different extent. Heart att...

Effects of a 12-week cardiovascular rehabilitation programme on systemic inflammation and traditional coronary artery disease risk factors in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (CARDIA trial): a randomised controlled trial.

Patients with systemic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) above the baseline risk attributable to traditional CVD risk facto...

The impact of listening to music during a high-intensity exercise endurance test in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

In people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), dyspnea is the primary symptom limiting exercise tolerance. One approach to reducing dyspnea during exercise is through music listening. A ...

Microbiota-Host Crosstalk: A Bridge Between Cardiovascular Risk Factors, Diet, and Cardiovascular Disease.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and is also a major cause of disability worldwide. Indeed, even in well-treated patients for hypertension or dyslipidemia, there is still a high ca...

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.

A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.

ANGINA PECTORIS or angina-like chest pain with a normal coronary arteriogram and positive EXERCISE TEST. The cause of the syndrome is unknown. While its recognition is of clinical importance, its prognosis is excellent. (Braunwald, Heart Disease, 4th ed, p1346; Jablonski Dictionary of Syndromes & Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed). It is different from METABOLIC SYNDROME X, a syndrome characterized by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA, that has increased risk for cardiovascular disease.

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.

The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
