To determine the effects of deer antler velvet on maximal aerobic performance and the trainability of muscular strength and endurance, 38 active males were randomly assigned in a double-blind fashion to either deer antler velvet extract (n = 12), powder (n = 13), or placebo groups (n = 13). Subjects were tested prior to beginning supplementation and a 10-week strength program, and immediately post-training. All subjects were measured for circulating levels of testosterone, insulin-like growth… Expand

Effect of Deer Antler Velvet on Aerobic, Anaerobic and Strength Performance
TLDR
The results suggest that Dav may have ergogenic effects in men participating solely in resistance training and improve cycling performance or showed adverse changes in blood chemistries. Expand
Effect of elk velvet antler supplementation on the hormonal response to acute and chronic exercise in male and female rowers.
TLDR
It appears that 10 wk of EVA supplementation does not significantly improve rowing performance nor alter hormonal responses at rest or after acute exercise than training alone. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that DAV may have ergogenic effects in men participating solely in resistance training and improve cycling performance and blood chemistries, and observe a significant reduction in LDL-C accompanying DAV supplementation. Expand
Cornu cervi pantotrichum supplementation improves physiological adaptions during intensive endurance training
TLDR
Cornu cervi pantotrichum (CCP), used in traditional Chinese medicine, is a well-known yang-invigorating agent with multifunctional bioactivities that may potentially improve the physiological adaptions in intensive exercise training. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that Dav may have ergogenic effects in men participating solely in resistance training and improve cycling performance or showed adverse changes in blood chemistries. Expand
Health benefits of deer and elk velvet antler supplements: a systematic review of randomised controlled studies.
TLDR
Claims made for velvet antler supplements do not appear to be based upon rigorous research from human trials, although for osteoarthritis the findings may have some promise. Expand
Effect of antler extract on corticosteroid-induced avascular necrosis of the femoral head in rats.
TLDR
The results suggest that antler extract has a positive curative effect on ANFH by promoting osteoblastic proliferation through regulation of cell cycle progression. Expand

TLDR
It is confidently concluded that DV does not increase the incidence, multiplicity, metastasis or tumour volume of AOM-induced colon cancer in the rat. Expand
Detection of human insulin-like growth factor-1 in deer antler velvet supplements.
TLDR
The presence of a pharmaceutical protein, human IGF-1, was confirmed in four commercially available products sold as all natural, nutritional supplements and can be used to screen additional products to further prevent the illegal sale of adulterated supplements. Expand

TLDR
The IGF-1 ELISA results have implications for both physical activity in the Elderly and the population at risk of obesity, as well as for future research. Expand

Potential for strength and endurance training to amplify endurance performance.
TLDR
It is indicated that certain types of endurance performance, particularly those requiring fast-twitch fiber recruitment, can be improved by strength-training supplementation, and heavy-resistance training to increase leg-muscle strength is recommended. Expand
Effects of repeated administration of deer antler extract on biochemical changes related to aging in senescence-accelerated mice.
TLDR
It was found that the repeated oral administration of Rokujo had significant restoring effects on the physiological degenerations which were associated with the development of senile symptoms. Expand
Insulin-like growth factors and their binding proteins in plasma and milk after growth hormone-stimulated galactopoiesis in normally lactating women.
TLDR
A double-blind randomized placebo-controlled trial of recombinant human growth hormone (hGH) in normally lactating women to investigate the endocrine mode of action of the galactopoietic effect of this hormone. Expand
Neural factors versus hypertrophy in the time course of muscle strength gain.
TLDR
The results indicated that neural factors accounted for the larger proportion of the initial strength increment and thereafter both neural factors andhypertrophy took part in the further increase in strength, with hypertrophy becoming the dominant factor after the first 3 to 5 weeks. Expand
The role of learning and coordination in strength training
TLDR
It is concluded that a large part of the improvement in the ability to lift weights was due to an increased ability to coordinate other muscle groups involved in the movement such as those used to stabilise the body. Expand
Diurnal variations of serum erythropoietin at sea level and altitude
TLDR
Diurnal variations of serum-EPO concentration in normoxia and hypoxia are demonstrated, with comparable time courses of median values, suggesting that EPO production at altitude is influenced by changes in pH and haemoglobin oxygen affinity. Expand
Rate of erythropoietin formation in humans in response to acute hypobaric hypoxia.
TLDR
EPO levels during hypoxia were significantly elevated after 114 and 84 min (3,000 and 4,000 m) and rising thereafter continuously for the period investigated, corresponding to 1.8-fold and 3.0-fold increases in the calculated production rate of the hormone. Expand
Stimulating effect of deer antler extract on protein synthesis in senescence-accelerated mice in vivo.
TLDR
Results suggest that enhancement of RNA polymerase II activity induced by long-term Rokujo treatment is responsible for the increase in protein synthesis in vivo in SAM. Expand

TLDR
The possible mechanisms of neural adaptation are discussed in relation to motor unit recruitment and firing patterns and the relative roles of neural and muscular adaptation in short- and long-term strength training are evaluated. Expand
