ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00693537
First received: June 4, 2008
Last updated: June 6, 2008

  Purpose

Patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus suffer from accelerated coronary artery disease. We will assess the effects of exercise training on coronary endothelial function, vascular structure, and inflammation both in serum and skeletal muscle biopsies, as well as expression of diabetes candidate genes.


Condition Intervention Phase
Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Coronary Artery Disease
Procedure: Coronary angiography
Behavioral: Exercise training
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A
4 weeks in-hospital exercise training (6x15 min bicycle/day, 5 days/week) followed by a 5 months ambulatory exercise program (30 min ergometer/day, 5 days/week, plus 1h group exercise/week)
Procedure: Coronary angiography
At baseline, 4 weeks, and 6 months changes in diameter of coronary arteries in response to intracoronary infusion of acetylcholine were analyzed by quantitative coronary angiography, mean peak flow velocity by Doppler velocimetry, and intramural plaques by intravascular ultrasound.
Behavioral: Exercise training
4 weeks in-hospital exercise training (6x15 min bicycle/day, 5 days/week) followed by a 5 months ambulatory exercise program (30 min ergometer/day, 5 days/week, plus 1h group exercise/week)
No Intervention: B
Control
Procedure: Coronary angiography
At baseline, 4 weeks, and 6 months changes in diameter of coronary arteries in response to intracoronary infusion of acetylcholine were analyzed by quantitative coronary angiography, mean peak flow velocity by Doppler velocimetry, and intramural plaques by intravascular ultrasound.
