Edited by Peter Redfern - Professor of Pharmacology, University of Bath, Bath, UK
Chronotherapeutics considers the pharmaceutical and therapeutic implications associated with biological clocks, solely in relation to humans. Comprehensive discussion is given to specific diseases, which are time dependent, and the drugs and new drug formulations that can be used as treatments.
Written by leading international experts in the field, Chronotherapeutics provides up-to-date information on chronobiology for non-chronobiologists in pharmaceutical and medical sciences.
