Neuroprotective biomarker levels after resistance training in multiple sclerosis

Takeaway

  • Neuroprotective effects induced by progressive resistance training (RT) in patients with multiple sclerosis (pwMS) are not mediated by acute or circulating levels of plasma brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) or sphingosine-1-phosphat (S1P).

Why this matters

  • Determination of biomarkers and different exercise modalities that have neuroprotective effects in MS will identify better treatment and therapeutic protocols.
