    We characterized O2 consumption (VO2) during treadmill exercise in 12-, 24-, and 35-month-old Fischer 344 x Brown Norway F1 hybrid (F344BNF1) rats. When accounting for differences in body mass (Mb), VO2peak decreased by 10% and 33% in 24- and 35-month-old rats, respectively, compared with rats...

    The present study examined the effect of hypoxia-induced respiratory alkalosis on exercise-induced metabolic acidosis and increases in plasma lactate and ammonia levels. Six male subjects underwent exercise of increasing intensity until exhaustion: (1) in normoxia (20.9% O2) (=MAX), (2) in...
