Abstract: Background: Obesity has been associated with low-grade systemic inflammation, potentially leading to insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, and cardiovascular diseases. Even moderate weight loss through dietary changes and physical exercise is effective in preventing and managing obesity-associated disorders. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of 16-week exercise program on serum chemerin concentrations in obese children.Methods: Thirty-two overweight and obese male children were randomly assigned to either a twice-per-week exercise training group (ExG = 16) or a nonexercising control group (CG = 16) for 16 wk. Body mass index (BMI), body composition, waist circumference(WC), glucose, insulin, insulin resistance index (HOMA-IR), lipids and serum chemerin were measured before and after intervention.Results: Exercise training significantly improved BMI, body composition, WC, glucose, insulin, HOMA-IR and lipids? profile in ExG. Serum chemerin concentrations were high at baseline in both groups, but exercise training reduced its levels after 16 weeks to 168.9±12.6 ng/ml(p
