Effects of Aerobic Exercise Training on C-Reactive Protein Levels in Normotensives versus Non-Normotensives
One of the precursors to hypertension (HTN) is systemic inflammation which can lead to vascular dysfunction and eventually HTN. Aerobic exercise training (AEXT) is known to be an important intervention tool in the prevention and treatment of HTN, inflammation and vascular dysfunction. However, no study has yet determined the effect of AEXT on inflammation in normotensive versus non-normotensive participants.
