Effects of mild exercise on cytokines & cerebral blood flow in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

  [ 42 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • March 2, 1994


Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is an idiopathic disorder
characterized by fatigue that is markedly exacerbated by
physical exertion. In the present study, we tested the
hypothesis that mild exercise (walking 1 mph [1 mile = 1.609
km] for 30 min) would provoke serum cytokine and cerebral
blood flow abnormalities of potential pathogenic importance in
CFS. Interleukin-1 beta, interleukin-6, and tumor necrosis
factor alpha were nondetectable in sera of CFS patients (n =
10) and healthy control subjects (n = 10) pre- and
postexercise. At rest, serum transforming growth factor beta
(TGF-beta) levels were elevated in the CFS group compared with
the control group (287 +/- 18 versus 115 +/- 5 pg/ml,
respectively; P < 0.01). Serum TGF-beta and cerebral blood
flow abnormalities, detected by single-photon
emission-computed tomographic scanning, were accentuated
postexercise in the CFS group. Although these findings were
not significantly different from those in the control group,
the effect of exercise on serum TGF-beta and cerebral blood
flow appeared magnified in the CFS patients. Results of this
study encourage future research on the interaction of physical
exertion, serum cytokines, and cerebral blood flow in CFS that
will adopt a more rigorous exercise program than the one used
in this study.
