Estimation of effect a low intensity cycling on proinflammatory adipokine resistin
International Journal of Biosciences
Resistin, an adipocyte-derived factor, is associated with obesity and body fat, while others failed to observe such correlations. This study was aimed to estimate serum resistin in response to one session moderate exercise in obese men. So, we measured serum resistin concentration before and immediately after exercise (moderate short-time cycling test) in fifteen adult obese men. All subjects were non smoker and non-athletes. Independent sample T-test was used to compare the serum levels of
... stin between pre and post test. A P-value of < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. No significant difference was found in serum resistin by cycling exercise with compared to pretest (from 2.60 ± 1.9 to 2.82 ± 1.54 ng/ml p=0.436). Our findings indicate that a short-time low-intensity cycling does not affect proinflammatory adipokine resistin in obese men. Al-Harithy RN, Al-Ghamdi S. 2005.
