dc.description.abstract Interrelations between physical exercise, monoamines and hypertension are postulated by various investigators. The purpose of the present study was to determine and compare catecholamine levels at rest and after a 12-week aerobic exercise program in 11 sedentary normotensive (N) and 8 hypertensive (H) men. Plasma catecholamines were determined by high performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection. A significant post-exercise increase in plasma noradrenaline was observed in the N and H groups (P<0.01) both before and after the aerobic exercise program. The hypertensive group showed a significant reduction of the sum of 7 skinfold thickness scores after the aerobic exercise program (from 178.7 +/- 65.6 to 144.0 +/- 47.4 mm) although no significant difference was observed when the body mass index was compared. A significant reduction in diastolic blood pressure at rest was observed in the H group after the aerobic exercise program (from 99.2 +/- 2.0 to 85.0 +/- 5.5). There were no significant differences in catecholamine concentrations between groups before and after the 12-week aerobic exercise program at rest and post-exercise. These data show a relationship between physical exercise and hypertension that was not related to changes in plasma catecholamine levels. en
