Previous studies were reported higher adipokine resistin on asthma patients. The objective of this study was to estimate the effects of aerobic exercise program on serum resistin in asthma patients. For this purpose, twenty four adult men with chronic asthma aged 37 ± 6 were participated in this study and divided into exercise or control groups by randomly. Subjects in exercise group were completed an aerobic exercise program for three month, three times per week and control subjects was banned of exercise in this period. Pre and post training of anthropometrical markers and fasting serum resistin were measured in two groups. Exercise program resulted in significant decrease in serum resistin, body weight, BMI and body mass index in exercise group. All variables remained without change in control group. Based on this data, we can say aerobic training is associated with loss weight can be improve inflammation profile in asthma patients.
