Abstract

With the introduction of high sensitive assays, cardiac troponins have become potential biomarkers for risk stratification and prognostic medicine. Observational studies have shown that physical activity is inversely related to basal cardiac troponin leve We assessed the effect of two exercise training programs (12-week resistance-type exercise training (study 1) and 24-week resistance-type exercise training (study 2)) on high sensitive cardiac troponin T and I in older adults (=65 years). In additio In total, 13 men (study 1), 26 men and women (study 2) and 52 (pre)frail men and women (study 3) were included in the final data analyses. We found no significant changes in cardiac troponin levels over time in study 1 and 2 (study 1: Troponin T p=0.16, a Prolonged resistance-type exercise training does not modulate basal troponin T and I levels.
