I have been studying exercise effects in hyperphenylalaninemia since 2010 in south of Brazil.

Since this field has not been explored yet, our experiments were only in animal model of PKU. We have found good effects of aerobic training on antioxidant system, some hormones and behavioral tasks.

Now I am starting a project aimed to evaluate many parameters after one session of exercise in PKU patients which will be sponsored by the PKU Academy.

I hope bring interesting and useful information for you soon!
