CANCER CHRONOTHERAPY: THE RIGHT TIME TO HIT!Abstract
Chronomodulated therapy or chronotherapy has gained popularity, beyond a fancy term, as a novel and logical method to exploit the best, by administering anti-cancer treatment at an optimal timing according to circadian rhythms of their anti-cancer action and/or repair mechanism of cancer & normal cells. Understanding of chronobiology and the results of clinical studies back up this new concept. Chronotherapy seems to have all the potential to become tomorrow’s accepted, refined oncology practice without adding much to the cost of existing therapy.
