Treadmill Low-Intensity Training Mediates Fibrosis and Maintains the Function of Dystrophic Muscle: Understanding the Effects Over Time

SUMMARY Background. Dystrophic skeletal muscle undergoes fast degeneration and therapeutic exercise is controversial in this condition. The aim of this study was investigate the effects of a low-intensity training protocol on muscle fibrosis and function of the mdx model. Methods. Mdx male animals with 8 weeks of age were (T0; n=8) underwent a protocol of … Continued
