Aerobic conditioning in patients with mitochondrial myopathies: physiological, biochemical, and genetic effects.


Aerobic training has been shown to increase work and oxidative capacity in patients with mitochondrial myopathies, but the mechanisms underlying improvement are not known. We evaluated physiological (cycle exercise, 31P-MRS), biochemical (enzyme levels), and genetic (proportion of mutant/wild-type genomes) responses to 14 weeks of bicycle exercise training… (More)
