While about 80% of patients in the study showed circadian modulation of their seizure rates, a substantial portion showed strong circaseptan (7 day) rhythms, according to the study's senior author, Mark J.
Significant circaseptan cycles were seen in more than 20% of patients in one analysis from the study, which Dr.
However, knowing the temporal variability (ultrafine, circadian, infradian, circaseptan
, circatrigintan, and circannual) of the manifestations and the security of drug utilization constitutes the reason of a new approach of the therapy - chronotherapy.
While urinary sodium excretion rate is known to exhibit a daily (circadian) to weekly (circaseptan
) pattern [40,41], in the present study, one-time spot urinary samples were drawn at close times for all patients.
The data obtained for trehalose in the July-September period are consistent with the existence of a circaseptan
subcomponent of period tau congruent to 132 h .
Although its location has not been established, circaseptan (about seven days) and circasemiseptan (about half week) clocks may exist to adapt the organism to events that happen once and twice a week.
Mapping of circaseptan and circadian changes in mood.
A larger scale longitudinal experiment seems possible, applying the personalized heart rate techniques that we have adopted at various points in the year on both weekdays and weekend days; this would test for possible circadian, circaseptan
and seasonal effects in Tunisian society, and would help to establish causality in the relationships that we have observed.
(about weekly) and circannual (about yearly) rhythms are examples of infradian rhythms.
