Abstract We tested the hypothesis that the fibrinolytic response to acute physical activity is impaired in sedentary older hypertensive men, which may contribute to the risk of exertion-triggered acute myocardial infarction in this population. Tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) antigen and activity and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) antigen and activity were measured in 12 hypertensive (69 +/- 1 yr) and 11 normotensive (64 +/- 1 yr) men before and after an acute bout of submaximal exercise. Contrary to our hypothesis, there were no differences between the two groups in the fibrinolytic response to exercise. t-PA antigen and activity were significantly elevated in both the hypertensive (38 and 172\%, respectively) and normotensive (45 and 130\%, respectively) groups immediately after exercise but they returned to resting levels within 30 min. There was no change in PAI-1 antigen levels immediately after exercise in either group; however, PAI-1 antigen was significantly lower at 30 and 60 min postexercise in both the hypertensive (31 and 16\%, respectively) and normotensive (35 and 20\%, respectively) groups. PAI-1 activity was significantly lower immediately after exercise in both the hypertensive (25\%) and normotensive (22\%) groups and remained lower than preexercise levels at 30 min (23 and 26\%, respectively) and 60 min (16 and 12\%, respectively) postexercise in both groups. The results of this study demonstrate that the fibrinolytic response to an acute bout of moderate physical activity is not impaired in sedentary older hypertensive men.
