Toward a Molecular Approach to Chronotype Assessment

Biscontin A, Zarantonello L, Russo A, Costa R, Montagnese R J Biol Rhythms The aim of the present study was to develop a Polygenic Score-based model for molecular chronotype assessment. Questionnaire-based phenotypical chronotype assessment was used as a reference. In total, 54 extremely morning/morning (MM/M; 35 females, 39.7 ± 3.8 years) and 44 extremely evening/evening […]

Editorial: Entrainment of Biological Rhythms

Costa R, Kyriacou C Front Physiol Circadian rhythms are ubiquitous and are observed in nearly all organisms that have been studied which inhabit our planet. These include animals, plants, fungi as well as some bacteria. These endogenous clocks will tick along nicely with an approximately 24 h period in constant conditions because they are generated […]

New Therapies of Liver Diseases: Hepatic Encephalopathy

Mangini C, Montagnese S J Clin Med Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a common complication of advanced liver disease which has profound implications in terms of the patients’ ability to fulfil their family and social roles, to drive and to provide for themselves. Recurrent and persistent HE is still a serious management challenge, translating into a […]

Management of the major complications of cirrhosis: Beyond guidelines

Garcia-Pagan JC, Francoz C, Montagnese S, Senzolo M, Mookerjee RP Journal of Hepatology Along with a growing understanding of the pathophysiology of cirrhosis and its complications, new therapies and management strategies have emerged in recent years. Many of these advances have helped inform the current EASL clinical practice guidelines1 on the management of some of […]

Frontiers in Chronobiology: Endogenous Clocks at the Core of Signaling Pathways in Physiology

Costa R Frontiers in Physiology Chronobiology is a relatively young and fast evolving research field, which aims at understanding the origin, the mechanisms and the prerogatives of endogenous biological clocks. The Chronobiology section of Frontiers in Physiology provides an interdisciplinary forum for the publication of research covering all aspects of the field, including molecular clock […]
