How to measure microparticles in prevention and rehabilitation

Nicolle Kraenkel answers key questions on behalf of the Exercise, Basic and Translational Research Section

Cell-derived sub-micron vesicles, the so-called “microparticles” have come into the focus of interest as a new class of circulating mediators, potentially able to serve as biomarkers for the activation state of specific cells or organs, such as the vascular endothelium, and harbouring prognostic potential. In cardiovascular rehabilitation, microparticle monitoring might support the progress towards “personal” rehabilitation programmes.
