Chronotherapeutics discusses the pharmaceutical and therapeutic implications associated with biological clocks, solely in relation to humans. Comprehensively covers specific diseases, which are time dependent, and the drugs and new drug formulations that can be used as treatments.

In nature, many physical processes are governed by the passage of time. The study of these processes, chronobiology, reveals rhythmic patterns which may be yearly, monthly, daily or more frequent. Novel drug delivery systems are currently being developed that will release varying quantities of a drug at optimum times to coincide with these rhythmic patterns.

Written by leading international experts in the field, Chronotherapeutics provides up-to-date information on chronobiology for non-chronobiologists in pharmaceutical and medical sciences.
