Abstract: The prevalence of impaired glucose tolerance is increased in individuals with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Similar to other populations, it has been suggested that higher intensity rehabilitation/training programs could improve glucose tolerance in MS. However, because the use of a high intensity program was never investigated before in this population, it seems warranted to first explore this in an animal (rat) model for MS, notably experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). This thesis aims to investigate the impact of high intensity exercise on glucose tolerance (GT) and insulin in EAE rats. EAE nor exercise were able to affect glucose tolerance. However, glucose tAUC was increased after hindquarter paralysis.
