The Mélodie R pump makes chrono-adapted administration of drugs possible in order to optimize cancer treatment. The concept of chronotherapy is based on evidence of biological rhythms that change over a 24-hour period (circadian rhythms). The fate of a drug in the body and its pharmacological effect are affected by these rhythms so that its toxicity and efﬁcacy can vary up to 5-fold depending on the administration schedule. Antibiotic therapy is a major indication for Mélodie R . The main beneﬁts are that it: • • • • Complies with the dosing schedule for each drug, Avoids procedures associated with a risk of sepsis, Avoids drug interactions (rinsing after each antibiotic), Allows treatment traceability (during and after infusion).
G. conductive, semiconductive, electroresistive and piezoresistive) will be integrated and used as basic elements to fabricate woven or knitted fabrics posessing distributed sensors and logic functions. The simultaneous recording of vital signs will allow parameter extrapolation and inter-signal elaboration that contribute to making alert messages and personalized synoptic tables of a patient’s health. WEALTHY (Figure 18), a research project funded by the European Commission’s IST programme, develops smart fabrics for personal health monitoring.
