Title

Effects of Exercise Training on Indices of Endothelial Status in African Americans

Abstract

Middle-aged African Americans (AA) have the highest incidence of hypertension in the U.S. partly due to endothelial dysfunction. Nitric oxide (NO) mediates endothelial-dependent vasodilation and is endogenously inhibited by asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA). The aim of our study was to determine the effects of a 6 mo cardiorespiratory fitness training (CRFT) intervention on plasma NO end-products (NOx) and ADMA levels in African-Americans participants.
