https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2451994421000043#coi0010 Abstract Night shift work is a risk factor for viral infection, suggesting that night shift schedules compromise host defense mechanisms. Prior studies have investigated changes in the temporal profiles of circulating cytokines important for priming and restraining the immune response to infectious challenges from night shift work, but not by way of a 24-h...
