Background. We pooled data from four studies, to establish whether exercise training programs were able to modulate systemic cytokine levels of tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukin-6 (IL-6). A second aim was to establish if differences in ExT regimens are related to degree of change in cytokines and peak VO(2). Methods. Data from four centres relating to training protocol, exercise capacity, and cytokine measures (TNF-alpha and IL-6) were pooled for analysis. Results. Data for 106 CHF patients were collated (98 men, age 62 ± 10 yrs, wt 79 ± 14 Kg). Patients were moderately impaired (peak VO(2) 16.9 ± 4.4 mls/kg/min), with moderate LV systolic dysfunction (EF 30 ± 6.9%), 78% (83) had ischaemic cardiomyopathy. After ExT, peak VO(2) increased 1.4 ± 3.4 ml/kg/min (P < .001), serum TNF-alpha decreased 1.9 ± 8.6 pg/ml (P = .02) and IL-6 was not significantly changed (0.5 ± 5.4 pg/ml, P = .32) for the whole group. Baseline and post-training peak VO(2) changes were not correlated with change in cytokine levels. Conclusions. Exercise training reduces levels TNF-alpha but not IL-6 in CHF. However, across a heterogenic patient group, change in peak VO(2) was not correlated with alterations in cytokine levels. While greater exercise volume (hours) was superior in improving peak VO(2), no particular characteristic of ExT regimes appeared superior in effecting change in serum cytokines.
