This is the first book to describe the pharmacological interaction of drugs and exercise with organ systems at molecular and cellular levels. It explains the effect of exercise on pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of drugs, and the activation or induction of antioxidant enzymes which may take place via the adenosine receptor or may occur due to gene expression.
