Recent evidence has shown that obesity increases the risk of asthma, atopic and autoimmune diseases and it is reported that adiponectin may play an important role in relationship between asthma and obesity. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of aerobic exercise training on serum adiponectin in asthma patients. For this purpose, thirty adult obese men with asthma disease divided to experimental and control group by randomly. The experimental group were completed a long term aerobic exercise training for three months (3 time per week) and control group did not participate in exercise program. Fasting serum adiponectin and anthropometrical indexes were measured before and after exercise program. Statistical analysis was performed with the SPSS software version 15.0 using by independent and paired samples T-test. Significance was accepted at P < 0.05. Serum adiponectin were significantly increased in response to chronic aerobic exercise program when compared with baseline levels in experimental group (P = 0.011). BMI and the other anthropometrical indexes were decreased by exercise training (P <.05). FEV1 levels were also significantly increased in response to chronic aerobic exercise program when compared with baseline levels (P < .05). All variables in control group remained didn’t change. Considering to the findings, we can conclude aerobic exercise training for long time may improve systemic inflammation in asthma patients that is associated with improve respiratory response.
