    , Article Gazzetta Medica Italiana Archivio per le Scienze Mediche ; Volume 171, Issue 4 , 2012 , Pages 409-416 ; 03933660 (ISSN) Gholipour, M ; Tabrizi, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Aim. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of a training program on body composition, GH, IGF-1 and insulin in overweight and obese female college students. Methods. The 17 overweight college student females divided into 2 groups: Experimental group (E) with 3 sessions per week, 6 weeks duration (N=9,Age=18.9 ± 1.3,BMI= 28.8 ± 2.6), and non-exercising control group (C) (N=8, Age=19.3 ± 1.8, BMI=26.3 ± 0.9). All measures included Vo2max, body composition, IGF-1, GH and insulin were done at baseline and following the protocol. Results. The calorie intake increased in both groups when compared to the baseline. The Vo2max increased statistically significant in E, and decreased in C.... 

    The acute effects of intermittent treadmill running on hunger and plasma acylated ghrelin concentration in individuals with obesity

    Background: Body weight is regulated by both food intake and energy expenditure. Ghrelin, a hormone produced by the stomach and pancreas, enhances appetite. This study was undertaken to determine the effects of intermittent treadmill running on acylated ghrelin and appetite in individuals with obesity. Methods: Nine inactive male students, with a mean age of 20.56±0.48 yrs, a body mass index of 32.68±0.84 kg/m2 and a maximum oxygen uptake of 34.21±1.48 ml/kg/min, participated in the study in two trials (control and exercise) in a counterbalanced, randomized design. The protocol included intermittent running with a constant intensity at 65% of VO2 max on a treadmill. Blood samples were...

    Introduction: The role of Hippo signaling pathway, which was identified by genetic studies as a key regulator for tissue growth and organ size, in promoting physiological cardiac hypertrophy has not been investigated. Methods: Fourteen male Wistar rats were randomly assigned to the exercise and control groups. The exercise group ran 1 hour per day, 5 days/week, at about 65%-75% VO2max on the motor-driven treadmill with 15ºslope, and the control group ran 15 min/d, 2 days/ week at 9 m/min (0ºinclination), throughout the eight-week experimental period. Forty-eight hours after the last session, hearts were dissected and left ventricles were weighed and stored for subsequent RT-PCR analysis....
