Aspects of Human Chronopathology

  • Conference paper

Part of the Topics in Environmental Physiology and Medicine book series (TEPHY)

Abstract

Often in an individual or a group of patients the manifestation of disease or the exacerbation of symptoms is predictable, exhibiting time dependencies (chronopathologies) over 24-hr, 1-month, and 1-year periods. Chronopathology may involve also alterations in the temporal structure of biological functions quantifiable by differences in the period, acrophase, mesor, and/or amplitude, preceding, following, or coincident with a change in health status. While the major emphasis of most investigations has been the substantiation of periodicities in the occurrence of symptoms or morbid events, the study of changes in the body’s temporal structure associated with the commencement of illness has yet to be vigorously pursued.
