Primary Outcome Measures:
  • -Voluntary and electrically evoked forces on the contracted muscles [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Electrically evoked forces on the relaxed muscles and associated EMG activity [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Blood samples before the exercise [ Time Frame: every 4 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Muscle biopsy (vastus lateralis) [ Time Frame: before and after the exercise ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 30

Primary Completion Date: December 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
patients running during 24 hours without sleep
Procedure: running during 24 hours without sleep
patients running during 24 hours without sleep
Placebo Comparator: 2
patients without sleep during 24 hours
Other: no sleeping
patients without sleep during 24 hours

Detailed Description:

For that purpose, 14 subjects running 24 hours on a treadmill will be compared with a control group being awake during the same period. Subjects who running will have electrically evoked forces on the muscles associated EMG activity, blood samples and muscle biopsy.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 60 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • The subjects of the experimental group will be recruited among experienced ultra-runners . They all have run at least a 12 hour race or longer.
  • The control group will be recruited among experienced ultra-runners . Age of control group will be age experimental group more or less 2 years.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The subjects will not be selected if:

    • they were injured in the 3 months before the experiment
    • they had a tendon or joint pathology that could impair strength measurements.
    • they participate to an other experiment at the same time
