Description

This book provides an overview of circadian rhythms and cellular networks in their relation to biological systems and dynamical medicine. Six concise chapters explore circadian cell rhythms and biomarkers in inflammation, cardiovascular disease, cancer, depression, and more in causing and treating these ailments. The final chapter discusses optimization of drug delivery and individualized treatment systems using chronotherapy and chronobiology-based biomarkers as a general system of medicine. Succinct yet comprehensive, Cellular Rhythms and Networks, part of SpringerBriefs in Cell Biology presents a novel framework for clinical applications in personalized and systems medicine. It is invaluable reading for researchers and clinicians in cell biology, mood disorders, and systems medicine.
