Pharmacology and toxicology

Pharmacology is the division of medicine and biology concerned with the study of drug action, where a drug can be broadly described as any man-made, natural, or endogenous (from within body) molecule which exerts a biochemical and/or physiological issue on the cell, tissue, organ, or organism (sometimes the word pharmacon is used as a term to encompass these endogenous and exogenous bioactive species). More definitely, it is the study of the interactions that occur between a living organism and chemicals that alter normal or abnormal biochemical function. If substances have medicinal properties, they are contemplated pharmaceutical chemistry.

The field encompasses drug composition and properties, synthesis and drug design, molecular and cell mechanisms, organ/systems mechanisms, signal transduction/cellular communication, molecular diagnostics, interactions, toxicology, chemical biology, therapy, and medical applications and antipathogenic capabilities. The two main field of pharmacology are pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics.
