Quantification of irregular circadian cycles using time-series methods

  • Published on April 10, 2019

Abstract The original focus of the field of chronobiology was to demonstrate that most – if not all – biological parameters are modulated in a regular way by the periodic alternation of day and night, called circadian cycles. Recently, it has become clear that adverse conditions such as ageing and/or disease ...

A Pilot Characterization of the Human Chronobiome

  • Published on Dec 07, 2017

Abstract Physiological function, disease expression and drug effects vary by time-of-day. Clock disruption in mice results in cardio-metabolic, immunological and neurological dysfunction; circadian misalignment using forced desynchrony increases cardiovascular risk factors in humans. Here we integrated data from remote sensors, physiological and multi-omics analyses to assess the feasibility of detecting ...

Blood Pressure Circadian Pattern and Physical Exercise Assessment by Accelerometer and 7-Day Physical Activity Recall Scale.

  • Published on Aug. 24, 2013

Background The relationship between regular physical activity, measured objectively and by self-report, and the circadian pattern of 24-hour ambulatory arterial blood pressure (BP) has not been clarified. Methods We performed a cross-sectional study in a cohort of healthy patients. We included 1,345 patients from the EVIDENT study (mean age 55±14 years; 59.3% women). ...
