Metabolic Response to Pharmacological and Non-pharmacological Interventions

This project investigates the interaction between pharmacological therapies and life-style changes as non-pharmacological intervention. The current guidelines recommend a combination of pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches. However, little is known at the current state e.g. how life-style interventions like exercise training and medication interact. For primary and secondary prevention interactions between exercise training and lipid lowering medication is of high interest. Up to now it is still unclear if the positive effects of exercise training or lipid lowering medication alone act additively/synergisticly or counteractively when applied in combination as recommended by the guidelines. The major aim of this project is to investigate the effects of lipid lowering medication on endothelial/vascular function in cell culture models. Furthermore animal models shall provide insights into the interaction of exercise training and lipid lowering medication on cardiopulmonary capacity, vascular and heart function.
