Recent efforts to establish a role for plasma matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) as a marker of exercise-induced muscle damage have been inconsistent. Methodological and experimental design issues have contributed to confusion in this area. The purpose of this study was to use a damaging eccentric arm task to evaluate the relationship between activity… CONTINUE READING
