Chronopharmacology in the Treatment of Hypertension with Diuretics
Chronopharmacology is the study of the effect of timing of drug treatment, in relation to a periodic function such as a circadian cycle, on drug action. In this paper, we will present some preliminary studies in the application of chronopharmacology to the treatment of hypertension.
