The aim of this project is to investigate the mechanisms related to the cardiac hypertrophy induced by the association between high dose of nandrolone decanoate and physical training, evaluating the density of the beta-adrenergic receptors in the isolated right atria, the expression of cardiac hypertrophy markers, the heart electrical activity (electrocardiogram), and blood pressure in vivo.
