Abstract

Metabolic syndrome is characterized by an increase in oxidative stress and chronic
low-grade inflammation. The effects of an exercise test at 60–70% of the maximum capacity was
evaluated on inflammatory and antioxidant response in elderly people suffering from metabolic
syndrome. Exercise induced significant increases in plasma levels of inflammatory cytokines and
malondialdehyde. The expression of these cytokines and antioxidant enzymes were also increased
in peripheral blood mononuclear cells. In addition, plasma levels of tumour necrosis factor alpha
were unchanged. In conclusion, the exercise test induces a situation of oxidative stress that
promotes the activation of a proinflammatory cytokine cascade.
