  • discovery
  • Pharmacology, a biomedical science, deals with the research, discovery, and characterization of chemicals which show biological effects and the elucidation of cellular and organismal function in relation to these chemicals. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the field of drug discovery, classical pharmacology, also known as forward pharmacology, or phenotypic drug discovery (PDD), relies on phenotypic screening (screening in intact cells or whole organisms) of chemical libraries of synthetic small molecules, natural products or extracts to identify substances that have a desirable therapeutic effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • Classical pharmacology traditionally has been the basis for the discovery of new drugs. (wikipedia.org)
  • substances
  • Derivation of these equations can be found in e.g Rang and Dale's Pharmacology For substances that exhibit substantial plasma protein binding, clearance is generally dependent on the total concentration (free + protein-bound) and not the free concentration. (wikipedia.org)
  • drugs
  • books.google.com - Adapted for the U.S., this New Edition of PHARMACOLOGY, a popular UK text, describes what drugs do and emphasizes the mechanisms by which they act. (google.com)
  • The first pharmacology department was set up by Rudolf Buchheim in 1847, in recognition of the need to understand how therapeutic drugs and poisons produced their effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • Synaptic pharmacology is the study of drugs that act on the synapses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dental pharmacology' is the study of drugs used to treat conditions of the oral cavity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Department
  • The Department also provides teaching in more specialised options in later years and hosts students undertaking research projects in pharmacology. (ucl.ac.uk)
  • field
  • In the field of pharmacology, potency is a measure of drug activity expressed in terms of the amount required to produce an effect of given intensity. (wikipedia.org)
  • studies
  • Primary organ systems (so-called core battery systems) are: Central Nervous System Cardiovascular System Respiratory System Secondary organ systems of interest are: Gastrointestinal System Renal System Safety pharmacology studies are required to be completed prior to human exposure (i.e. (wikipedia.org)
  • The primary reference document for safety pharmacology is ICH S7A, followed by many key regulatory documents which either focus on or mention safety pharmacology: ICH S7A: Safety pharmacology studies for human pharmaceuticals. (wikipedia.org)
  • Systems pharmacology can be applied to drug safety studies as a complement to pharmacoepidemiology. (wikipedia.org)
  • Category
  • Work on improving any of the articles in the WikiProject Pharmacology article worklist , which is the list of all of the articles that have been identified as being of interest to the project, organized according to category, and assigned an importance and quality grade. (wikipedia.org)
  • There are many, many stubby pharmacology articles (listed at Category:Pharmacology stubs ) that have the potential to be excellent articles. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • Ethopharmacology (not to be confused with ethnopharmacology) is a term which has been in use since the 1960s and derives from the Greek word ἦθος ethos meaning character and "pharmacology" the study of drug actions and mechanism. (wikipedia.org)
