Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is characterized by the degeneration of upper and lower motor neurons, yet an increasing number of studies in both mouse models and patients with ALS suggest that altered metabolic homeostasis is a feature of disease. Pre-clinical and clinical studies have shown that modulation of energy balance can be beneficial in ALS. However, our capacity to target specific metabolic pathways or mechanisms requires detailed understanding of metabolic dysregulation in ALS. ...

An increasing body of evidence suggests that age-related immune changes and chronic inflammation contribute to cancer development. Recognizing that exercise has protective effects against cancer, promotes immune function, and beneficially modulates inflammation with ageing, this review outlines the current evidence indicating an emerging role for exercise immunology in preventing and treating cancer in older adults. A specific focus is on data suggesting that muscle- derived cytokines (myokines)...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of acacia polyphenol (AP) supplementation on exercise-induced oxidative stress in mouse liver and skeletal muscle. Plasma aspartate aminotransferase (AST), liver and skeletal muscle levels of thiobarbituric acid reactive substance (TBARS), and levels of skeletal muscle protein carbonyls increased immediately after exhaustive exercise. Exhaustive exercise also decreased liver glutathione (GSH). These results suggest that the exhaustive exer...

Purpose : External counterpulsation (ECP) has previously been used to treat cardiac patients via compression of the lower extremities during diastole to increase venous return and coronary perfusion. However, the effects of ECP on exercise performance and markers of recovery in elite athletes is largely unknown. Methods : On two separate occasions, 48 h apart, seven elite National Rugby League players performed an identical 60 min field-based conditioning session followed by a 30 min period of e...

Cardiac assist devices require thorough in vitro evaluation prior to in vivo animal trials, which is often undertaken in mock circulatory loops. To allow for best possible device development, mock circulatory loops need to be able to simulate a variety of patient scenarios. Transition from rest to exercise is one of the most commonly simulated patient scenarios, however, to validate in vitro exercise test beds, baseline data on how the healthy heart and circulatory system responds to exercise is...

Abstract Objectives To investigate whether five-weeks of concentric (CON) or eccentric (ECC) hamstring strength training have different effects on recovery from sprint running, eccentric strength and architecture of the biceps femoris long head (BFLH). Design Cohort study. Methods Thirty males (age, 22.8 ± 4.1 y; height, 180.1 ± 6.4 cm; weight, 85.2 ± 14.6 kg) were allocated into either a CON or ECC group, both performing nine sessions of resistance training. Prior to and immediately after the f...

AbstractPurpose: Oxidative stress (OS) has been implicated in the pathogenesis of metabolic syndrome (MetS). The acute change in OS biomarkers due to exercise, known as exercise-induced OS (EIOS), is postulated to be a more appropriate marker of OS compared to spot OS measures. These studies objectives were to investigate EIOS in participants with MetS and compare the associations between EIOS, spot OS measures and MetS severity.Methods: Sixty-three participants with MetS had MetS severity asses...
