The impact of abbreviated progressive muscle relaxation on salivary cortisol and salivary immunoglobulin A (sIgA)

, : The impact of abbreviated progressive muscle relaxation on salivary cortisol and salivary immunoglobulin A (sIgA). Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback 30(4): 375-387

This study examined the acute effects of relaxation training on salivary cortisol and salivary immunoglobulin A (sIgA). Members of age- and gender-matched undergraduate student pairs were randomly assigned to an experimental or control group. Forty-one experimental subjects were led through Abbreviated Progressive Relaxation Training (APRT) during a 1-h laboratory session; 14 control subjects merely sat quietly in the laboratory for an equal amount of time.

Dysregulated microRNA-134 (miR-134) has been observed in glioma carcinogenesis, and studies suggested that the ERK pathway plays vital roles in glioma cell growth and proliferation. However, the fundamental relationship between miR-134 and the ERK...
