Pharmacology of Infectious Diseases

A drug is any synthetic, natural, or endogenous (originating from inside the body) molecule that affects a cell, tissue, organ, or organism biochemically or physiologically. Pharmacology is a subfield of medicine, biology, and pharmaceutical sciences that studies how drugs or medications work (sometimes the word pharmakon is used as a term to encompass these endogenous and exogenous bioactive species). It is the study of how substances affect either healthy or unhealthy biochemical function in living things. Pharmaceuticals are substances that have healing properties. The two main subfields of pharmacology are pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics. While pharmacokinetics studies a drug's effects on biological systems, pharmacodynamics examines how a drug interacts with those systems.
