The aim of this report is to describe an integrated approach and to evaluate its feasibility in routine clinical practice in 98 advanced colorectal cancer (ACC) patients during chronomodulated chemotherapy.

Valvular heart disease. The evidence supporting CR for CAD patients is robust, whereas there are less data on CR for patients after valve surgery.
