Life is a rhythm

And now it's the turn to talk about the impact on the state of children's medicine" research results in other close and seemingly remote areas of science. Let's start with biology.
Every science is experiencing a period of peaceful development and turbulent upheavals associated with new discoveries and accumulation of new facts. Such rapid progress in recent years have been marked by biology. Especially important for new take-off of biological thought was opened material fundamentals of heredity realization of a genetic program deciphering of the genetic code, chemical synthesis gene and a number of proteins marked the beginning of a new direction in genetics - genetic engineering is very important for medicine and Pediatrics in particular, for he opens real ways for the prevention and treatment of hereditary: diseases previously considered incurable. The process in biology contributed to the formation of new scientific directions - molecular biology, physical-chemical biology, the development of which contributed to the creation of new biological concepts of human development, which, first of all, it is important for Pediatrics.
Considerable interest among pediatricians caused research biologists on chronobiology (the chronological biology, which deals with the study of biorhythms. It turned out that it is not enough to obtain information, even deep enough about the function of a particular organ or system. Very important was the knowledge of time in the life of a young organism.
Research biorhythms greatly enhanced our understanding of its functions. Indeed, the operation of the human body rhythmically. There is a whole range of different biological rhythms. Found that the regulate various physiological functions inherent in any biological system regardless of the level of its organization. Identified hourly, daily, monthly, annual, seasonal rhythms. So now adopted earlier, the term "circadian rhythms" to mean rhythmic activity is replaced by the term "circadian".
Information about biorhythmical the organism can be applied and in some cases apply for early diagnosis of many diseases before pronounced manifestations of the disease in the period, when we had just a violation of the functions in the form of a mismatch rhythmic functional activity of a particular organ or system.
The study of the biological rhythms of the organism not only helps in the diagnosis of disease. They play an equally important role, and for the proper administration of medication during the day. It turned out that some drugs are more effective in the morning, the other day, others in the evening.
