Single bouts of exercise induce an acute state of oxidative stress. It is largely unknown what this means in the context of diseases which are associated with increased oxidative stress, e.g., type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Free radicals can destroy the structure of erythrocytes and reduce their deformability. Antioxidative peroxiredoxins are highly(More)
UNLABELLED Oxidative stress plays a leading role in the progression of diabetic secondary complications, e.g., of cardio-vascular illnesses. Physical activity has been shown to delay and even prevent the progression of type 2 diabetes by improving the antioxidative capacity and thereby decreasing systemic oxidative stress. Peroxiredoxins (PRDX) are(More)
The present study investigates whether a moderate physical activity intervention may alter red cell deformability (RCD) of patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Subjects (n = 10; age: 62 ± 4; body-mass index (BMI): 25.8 ± 7.5) performed a training regimen for 10 weeks. In the beginning of the study and after the training(More)
