Polymorphisms in the endothelial nitric oxide synthase (NOS3) gene reduce shear stress-induced nitric oxide production. Thus, we investigated the individual and combined impact of 3 variants in the NOS3 gene (-786T>C, intron 4b4a, and 894G>T) on vascular reactivity before and after exercise. Sedentary, healthy subjects were studied (105 women/26 men, ...

BACKGROUND: Treadmill exercise testing has low specificity for the detection of significant epicardial coronary artery disease (CAD). A possible mechanism to explain some of the false positives is transient subendocardial ischemia induced by intraventricular gradients (IVG) during stress. The development of IVG during dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) occurs in 8-38% ...

BACKGROUND: Dobutamine and exercise echocardiography are well-validated modalities used for the evaluation of patients with suspected myocardial ischemia. Patients undergoing dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE), however, experience less angina, ST-segment depressions, and wall motion abnormalities. Other than the effect on heart rate, the physiologic and volumetric differences between pharmacologic and exercise-induced ...

Animals subjected to maternal separation stress during the early stages of development display behavioural, endocrine and growth factor abnormalities that mirror the clinical findings in anxiety/depression. In addition, maternal separation has been shown to exacerbate the behavioural deficits induced by 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) in a rat model of Parkinson's disease. In ...

Exercise stress testing is the most commonly used noninvasive method to evaluate for coronary artery disease in men and women. Although emphasis has been placed on the diagnostic value of ST-segment depression, the exercise stress test provides other valuable diagnostic and prognostic data, beyond ST-segment depression. The value of these ...

Exercise has been noted in some, but not all studies, to elicit an oxidative stress. The discrepancy in findings may be related to differences in exercise intensity across protocols, as well as differences in training status of participants. PURPOSE: We compared blood oxidative stress biomarkers in exercise-trained men following three ...

Exercise can lead to release of biomarkers such as cardiac troponin T (cTnT) and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), a poorly understood phenomenon proposed to especially occur with high-intensity exercise in less trained subjects. We hypothesised that haemodynamic perturbations during exercise are larger in athletes with cTnT release, and studied ...
