Background: To assess the effects of an exercise training program on endothelial function, arterial stiffness, disease status and physical capacity in a patient with hereditary inclusion body Myopathy linked to avalosin-containing proteinpGlyG97Glu gene mutation.
Methods: A 51-year-oldwhite female patient with only inclusion body Myopathy pheno type (without Paget disease of bone and frontotemporal dementia) was submitted to a 24-weeks aerobic and resistance training program.
Results: Endothelial function, aerobic capacity and muscle strength (i.e. bench press) were improved after 12-weeks. Aerobic capacity and endothelial function further improved after 24-weeks, whereas no alterations were observed for arterial stiffness. Moreover, there was no impairment on the clinical and laboratory parameters of the disease after 12- and 24-weeks. Main Findings: Exercise training proves safe and effective for improving endothelial function and increasing aerobic capacity, muscle strength and function in the patient.
