Pharmacology is the branch of medicine which sheds light on the interaction of medicine with the living systems. It is focused on the discussion of administration of drugs in living systems and how drugs are distributed in the body. In this course we are also going to study the mechanisms of metabolism and elimination of drugs with respect to classes of different drugs.
This course covers the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the drugs with a special focus on their mechanism of interaction with membrane transporters.
The course has broadly been divided into nine portions ranging from the general principles of pharmacology to neuropharmacology. This also covers the modulation of cardiovascular functions along with the inflammation and immunomodulation. This plays a significant role on the hormones and their antagonists.
