Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Cellular effects of exercise training at the ventilatory threshold intensity [ Time Frame: 6 to 8 weeks ]

Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: June 2009
Study Completion Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
20 sessions of training
Other: Training
20 sessions of training
Other Name: CT

Detailed Description:
Training protocol used is based on recommendations (Nici et al., 2006) and was previously used in our group (Varray et al., 1991; Vallet et al., 1997). A minimum of 20 sessions in 4-6 weeks were proposed. The exercise intensity of exercise corresponds to target heart rate at ventilatory threshold measured during incremental exercise test. Training at this intensity allowed us to individualize effort for each patient.
