TimeTeller's Innovative Non-Invasive Tool for Circadian Rhythm Characterization and Personalized Medicine Published in Scientific Article
TimeTeller has announced the publication of a scientific article titled "TimeTeller for timing health: The potential of circadian medicine to improve performance, prevent disease and optimize treatment" in Frontiers in Digital Health (doi.org/10.3389/fdgth.2023.1157654). The publication highlights the potential of circadian medicine in enhancing health and performance, and optimizing treatment timing.
Circadian medicine is the study of the effects of time on health and disease. The circadian clock, our endogenous time generating system, regulates behavioral, physiological, and cellular processes. Disruptions of the clock are linked to an increased risk of various diseases, including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer.
The lack of non-invasive tools for characterizing the circadian clock has limited the potential of circadian medicine. TimeTeller is a non-invasive molecular/digital tool for the characterization of circadian rhythms and prediction of daily routines, including treatment timing. By aligning an individual's circadian clock with optimal times for performing daily routines, physical and mental performance, and also the effectiveness of certain therapies can be improved.
The article suggests that the utility of TimeTeller can best be exploited in data-driven, personalized medicine use cases, using health information across lifestyle, care, and research settings. The potential of circadian medicine to improve performance, prevent disease, and optimize treatment is vast, and TimeTeller's innovative approach could help unlock its full potential.
