The endurance exercise promotes the release of inflammatory and markers of myocardial injury. Exacerbated inflammatory and/or injury process can affect cardiopulmonary system. Researchers have been investigating if myocardial injury after chronic endurance exercise is a physiological or pathological process of adaptation. The cardiopulmonary response after endurance exercise is influenced by training, genetic and epigenetic factors. The brief of cardiopulmonary fatigue after long-distance exercise will be presented by Ana Paula Rennó Sierra and Dra. Maria Fernanda will discuss the role of genotypes and inflammatory markers on cardiopulmonar changes induced by long- distance exercise. Dr. Bruno Moreira Silva will present results from studies that has been suggesting that the Ischemic preconditioning (IPC) can enhance exercise performance in some circumstances. IPC consists of brief cycles of ischemia followed by reperfusion, and is well-known to induce protection against ischemia/reperfusion injury. This protection has been attributed, in part, to beneficial effects of IPC on mitochondrial function and blood vessels, which, consequently, has driven the hypothesis that IPC could also enhance endurance exercise performance. Finally, Dra Edilamar M. Oliveira will elucidate the molecular/cellular mechanisms including the role of cardiac microRNA (miRNA) in physiological hypertrophy which influence genes associated with the heart remodeling and angiogenesis. There is a potential role of the miRNAs in promoting cardioprotective effects on physiological growth.
