New Findings In Cancer Treatment

In normal practice settings chemotherapy drugs are administered to patients as hospital staff see fit. Researchers have discovered that the time of day when chemotherapy drugs are administered can affect outcomes. Administration of chemotherapy drugs in accordance with a patient’s biological or circadian rhythms has been shown to improve treatment outcomes and reduce drug side effects. This practice is being called chrono-chemotherapy, a subset of the broader school of chronopharmacodynamics.
