Primary Outcome Measures:
  • insulin sensitivity (insulin profile) [ Time Frame: change from baseline to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    glucose and insulin concentration measurements in blood


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • aerobic capacity [ Time Frame: change from baseline to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    by means of a submaximal endurance test (ergometer)

  • cytokine profile [ Time Frame: change from baseline to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    measurements of blood cytokine levels

  • walking performance [ Time Frame: change from baseline to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Walking performance will be assessed by means of 2 and 6 minute walk test, 25-foot walk test, Chair rise test, Stair climb test

  • Self-reported measures [ Time Frame: Change from baseline to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The self-reported measures contains some questionnaires

  • body composition [ Time Frame: Change from baseline to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Weight, body fat% and lean tissue% will be assessed by means of a DEXA (Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) scan

  • muscle strength of knee flexor [ Time Frame: change from baseline to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    by means of an isokinetic dynamometer the muscle strength and endurance will be measured

  • muscle strength of knee extensor [ Time Frame: change from baseline to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    by means of an isokinetic dynamometer the muscle strength and endurance will be measured

  • muscle strength of elbow flexor [ Time Frame: change from baseline to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    by means of an isokinetic dynamometer the muscle strength will be measured

  • muscle strength of elbow extensor [ Time Frame: change from baseline to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    by means of an isokinetic dynamometer the muscle strength will be measured
