Systemic Inflammation, Vascular Function and Endothelial Progenitor Cells after an Exercise Training Intervention in COPD

Exercise training is a cornerstone of the treatment of COPD in all disease stages. Data about the training effects with supplemental oxygen in non-hypoxemic patients remains inconclusive. In this study we set out to investigate the training and oxygen effects on inflammatory markers, vascular function and endothelial progenitor cells in this population of increased cardiovascular risk.
