BACKGROUND Disrupted circadian coordination accelerates malignant growth, but the molecular mechanism is unclear. METHODS Healthy or Glasgow osteosarcoma-bearing mice (n = 162) were synchronized with light and darkness over 2-3 weeks, submitted to an 8-hour advance onset of light every 2 days (chronic jet lag) to disrupt circadian coordination, or(More)
Circadian disruption accelerates cancer progression, whereas circadian reinforcement could halt it. Mice with P03 pancreatic adenocarcinoma (n = 77) were synchronized and fed ad libitum (AL) or with meal timing (MT) from Zeitgeber time (ZT) 2 to ZT6 with normal or fat diet. Tumor gene expression profiling was determined with DNA microarrays at endogenous(More)
Circadian timing of anticancer medications has improved treatment tolerability and efficacy several fold, yet with intersubject variability. Using three C57BL/6-based mouse strains of both sexes, we identified three chronotoxicity classes with distinct circadian toxicity patterns of irinotecan, a topoisomerase I inhibitor active against colorectal cancer.(More)
We present here a fast and easily realized computational approach based on the finite element methods with consistent and lumped mass matrices (CM-FEM and LM-FEM, respectively), and the Bloch's theorem, to calculate the elastic band structures of phononic crystals. Two improvements, the adjustment of the introduction of Bloch's theorem as well as weighting(More)
