Conference Paper
Full-text available
Training for patients like Cancer Survivors sometimes includes intensities with calculated maximum heart rates or thresholds. These parameters are often means from studies with healthy volunteers. Therefore, they cannot predict the individual´s real values.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Positive effects of training-sessions with High Intensity workloads have been repeatedly highlighted also in our laboratory in recent years (Wittke et al. 2019). Frische & Maassen (2005) already showed the advantages of High-Intensity-High-Volume Training (HIHVT) compared to Continuous-Training (CT) in the period of 3 weeks. But how effective is su...
Article
Full-text available
Background Research indicates reduced physical performance from diagnosis into survivorship of pediatric cancer patients. However, there is no systematic information or guideline available on the methods to assess physical performance and function in this population. The purpose was to systematically compile and describe assessments of physical per...

Background: Adoptive transfer of virus-specific T cells (VSTs) represents a prophylactic and curative approach for opportunistic viral infections and reactivations after transplantation. However, inadequate frequencies of circulating memory VSTs in the T-cell donor's peripheral blood often result in insufficient enrichment efficiency and purity of...

BACKGROUND: Adoptive transfer of virus-specific T cells (VSTs) represents a prophylactic and/or curative approach for opportunistic viral infections and reactivations after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and solid organ transplantation (SOT). However, inadequate frequencies of circulating antiviral memory VSTs in the dono...

INTRODUCTION: In 2005 Frische and Maassen introduced a HIHVT-protocol with non-exhausting high intensity intervals, which was significantly more effective in improving endurance capacity (EC) compared to moderate-intensity CT (similar to HIIT). Moreover, with HIHVT recovery ability increased more without a loss of sprint ability. Since then, the pa...
Article
Background This article deals with a Workshop (WS) designed for individuals with different kinds of Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS). Physical activity plays a pivotal role in patient‐care, combining both somatic and mental effects, aiming to increase quality of life. Individuals with MPS frequently refrain from sports due to physical restrictions. Nine...
Article
Introduction: The goal of this randomized and controlled study is to examine whether whole-body vibration (WBV) training is able to reduce back pain and physical disability in seated working office employees with chronic low-back pain in a real-world setting. Materials and methods: A total of 41 subjects (68.3% female/mean age 45.5 ± 9.1 years/m...

METHODOLOGY: In our opinion, we have three different, but interlocking strategies to increase physical activity. We created different approaches depending on intrinsically motivation of the MPS affected children and adolescents, involving the parents and involving the teachers: A) Increase of everyday activity and quality of life during leisure tim...
Conference Paper
Purpose: Defects in the gene encoding the cystic fibrosis (CF) transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) cause CF. Absence of the CFTR may result in skeletal muscle dysfunction. Here, we tested skeletal muscle function in male adolescent patients with CF. Methods: Ten CF and 10 control participants (age: 16.8±0.6years) performed 7 repetitive se...
Article
Several studies suggest that exercise is associated with elevated oxidative stress which diminishes NO bioavailability. The aim of the present study was to investigate a potential link between NO synthesis and bioavailability and oxidative stress in the circulation of subjects performing high-intensive endurance exercise. Twenty-two male healthy su...

Abstract: The mode of warming up before sport activities has been discussed for several years. A new perspective was added by Pedersen et al. (2005) showing that acidosis or high lactate concentration may be beneficial for the excitability of muscles and may reduce fatigue. Thus we compared 3 different protocols of “warming up” preceding a maximal...
