Changes In The Number Of Circulating Cd34+ Cells After Eccentric Exercise Of The Elbow Flexors In Relation To Muscle Damage, Ho Seong Lee, Makii Muthalib, Takayuki Akimoto, Kazunori Nosaka

Research outputs 2014 to 2021

Background: It has been reported that strenuous exercise increases the number of bone marrow-derived progenitor cells such as CD34+ cells in the blood, but no previous studies have investigated the changes in circulating CD34+ cells following resistance exercise. This study tested the hypothesis that the number of CD34+ cells in the blood would increase after eccentric exercise of the elbow flexors, but decrease in recovery, and the magnitude of the changes would be dependent on the magnitude of muscle damage.

Methods: Nine men (28.0 ± 6.6 years) performed exercises consisting of 10 sets of six maximal voluntary …
