Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate the combined effect of endurance training and three doses of atorvastatin on serum interleukin-10 (IL-10) levels following experimental myocardial infarction in rats.Methods: 75 rats (age 8-10 weeks and 230±10 g body weight) were randomly divided to 9 groups. Sham, control, endurance training, atorvastatin (5, 10 and 15 mg/kg), and exercise plus atorvastatin (5, 10 and 15 mg/kg). MI was induced by subcutaneous injection of isoprenaline (150 mg/kg) in two consecutive days. Drug and training intervention was initiated 2 days after MI and continued for 4 weeks. Data were analyzed by using one-way analyses of variance (ANOVA) at P<0.05 level.Results: Combined ET with taking 10 mg/kg atorvastatin significantly increased serum levels of IL-10 (P=0.001), but the combined effect of ET and atorvastatin (5 and 15 mg/kg), ET alone and three doses of atorvastatin alone (5, 10 and 15 mg/kg) was not significant.Conclusion: It seems that combined endurance training with taking 10 mg/kg atorvastatin is the best combination that can improve the inflammatory condition after MI.
