What is the central question in this study? Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) is secreted in response to atrial wall distension and thus allows for evaluation, albeit indirect, of the central blood volume. Adrenaline has chronotropic and inotropic effects. We evaluated whether the chronotropic and inotropic effects of adrenaline were reflected in mid-regional proANP. What is the main finding and its importance? Central blood volume remained stable with infusion of adrenaline and yet mid-regional proANP increased. Thus, the chronotropic and inotropic state of the heart or adrenaline directly induces release of ANP variants from the myocytes.

Plasma volume (PV) changes in response to physical activity, possibly as a consequence of adrenergic activation. We estimated changes in PV in response to common exercise modalities; cycling and running as well as adrenaline infusion and control at rest.

Clinical trials of new disease-modifying treatments for osteoarthritis should demonstrate a positive effect on a functional outcome or reduction in joint failure in order to be considered successful. Total joint replacement (TJR) surgery may be considered as joint failure, but great variation in the incidence of TJR complicates its use as a study endpoint. Factors predicting elevated risk of TJR could potentially be used to enrich such outcome-trials.

We aimed to investigate existing literature on the impact of physical activity and exercise (PA) on joint biochemical markers (BM) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) outcomes in osteoarthritis (OA), and on this basis propose directions for future research. Literature Review. Original papers were identified in PubMed, Embase, and Scopus and data on study populations, activity, biomarkers, imaging, and outcomes were extracted and reviewed. 24 papers, mainly on knee OA, were included. PA indicated acute increase in cartilage turnover in OA patients, as indicated by changes in markers of extra cellular matrix (ECM) turnover.

To propose a standardized model for exercise-induced cartilage turnover and investigate residual levels and dynamics of biomarker serum ARGS (sARGS) in primary osteoarthritis (OA) patients and a supportive group of young healthy subjects.
