Optimize cancer outcomes with chronotherapy

Cancer treatment outcomes depend on the hospital environment. Research should evaluate the effects of ambient lighting (color, intensity, timing), and the best time of day for chemotherapy and feeding and other interventions which can disrupt a patient's normal circadian rhythm. This initiative was chosen as representative of the recommendations from members of the Society for Research on Biological Rhythms (SRBR).
