Acute and chronic effects of aerobic exercise on serum irisin, adropin, and cholesterol levels in the winter season: Indoor training versus outdoor training.

Acute and chronic effects of aerobic exercise on serum irisin, adropin, and cholesterol levels in the winter season: Indoor training versus outdoor training. Chin J Physiol. 2020 Jan-Feb;63(1):21-26 Authors: Ozbay S, Ulupınar S, Şebin E, Altınkaynak K Abstract The aim of this study is to investigate the acute and chronic effects of aerobic training performed indoors and outdoors on irisin, adropin, and cholesterol levels in winter. Thirty-two healthy males participated in this study. Participants were divided into two groups: outdoor group (n = 16) and indoor group (n = 16). They then performed 40-min aerobic running exercises 4 days/week for 18 weeks. The outdoor group trained at -5°C-5°C environmental temperature, while the indoor group trained at 21°C-25°C. Blood samples were collected before and after the 18-week training period and immediately after the first training. The results showed that single aerobic exercise induced minimal increase in serum irisin concentrations in both groups. In addition, irisin levels did not change in the outdoor group but significantly decreased in the indoor group after the 18-week training period. Aerobic exercise had no acute or chronic effects on serum adropin levels in the indoor group. However, the aerobic training caused a decrease in adropin levels chronically, but there was no acute effect after single aerobic exercise in the outdoor group. Furthermore, there was no acute effect on high-densi...

Authors: Kubong LN, Nya Biapa PC, Chetcha B, Yanou-Njintang N, Moor Ama VJ, Pieme CA Abstract Dyslipidemia is highly prevalent in sickle cell anemia (SCA) patients and is one of the major risk factors for cardiovascular diseases induced by oxidative stress in Africa. The aim of this research was to investigate the correlation between higher atherogenic index of plasma (API) and oxidative stress in a group of patients living with SCA in Cameroon. Methods. A group of 85 homozygote SS patients (male and female) were enrolled at the Central hospital of Yaounde in Cameroon between May and October 2017. After informed co...

This study aimed to evaluate the memory function in a rat model of fatty liver and to investigate the effects of statins on fatty liver, neuronal inflammation, oxidative stress and memory. In this study, 24 male rats were used and were divided into four groups consisting of 6 animals in each. Of them, 12 rats received liquid diet containing 35% fructose for 8 weeks in order to induce hepatosteatosis, while other animals had a normal nutrition. Group 1 served as controls and had a normal nutrition with no drug treatment. The animals in Group 2 had a normal nutrition and treated with atorvastatin. Group 3 received high-...

In conclusion, aspirin can systemically and simultaneously ameliorate NAFLD and atherosclerosis by inhibiting lipid biosynthesis and inflammation and by elevating catabolic metabolism through the activation of the PPARδ-AMPK-PGC-1α pathway. Furthermore, aspirin may normalize atherosclerosis and NAFLD by modulating the mannose receptor and CCR2 in macrophages. PMID: 32258142 [PubMed - in process]

This study aimed to identify the incidence of postcontrast acute kidney injury using baseline renal function when CTA and cerebral angiography were performed sequentially. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This retrospective observational study evaluated adults (18 years of age or older) with ischemic stroke who underwent CTA and cerebral angiography sequentially between 2010 and 2018. The incidence of postcontrast acute kidney injury was determined using the baseline estimated glomerular filtration rate. The value of the baseline estimated glomerular filtration rate at which the occurrence of postcontrast acute kidney injury increa...

We thank Drs. Remaley and Otvos for the interesting and valid comments on the use of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy in lipoprotein profiling [1]. We acknowledge that different methods arrive at different exact estimates for cholesterol content in remnant particles/triglyceride-rich lipoproteins. This is a consequence of the fact that apolipoprotein B containing lipoprotein fractions are derived from a continuum of lipoproteins in size and density rather than representing distinct classes.
