Körperliches Training bei mitochondrialen Erkrankungen

Abstract

Exercise is a promising therapeutical option for the treatment of mitochondrial myopathies. Its efficacy and safety have been proven in various studies. In patients with mitochondrial myopathy, resistance training and aerobic exercise training lead to widely diversified effects: resistance training is thought to normalize the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) genotype in mature myofibers by enhancing the incorporation of satellite cells and thereby increasing the ratio of wild-type to mutant mtDNA (“gene shifting”). Aerobic exercise training induces mitochondrial biogenesis and helps breaking the vicious circle of low oxidative phosphorylation capacity, exercise intolerance, and progressive muscular deconditioning. Certain drugs act as inductors of mitochondrial biogenesis but their safety and efficacy in patients with mitochondrial myopathy have to be further investigated.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
