Pathophysiology & Pharmacology

Pathophysiology & Pharmacology

Pathophysiology is the study of the abnormal physiological processes that produce, result from, or are somehow connected with a disease or injury. It is a combination of pathology and physiology. Physiology is the biological discipline that defines processes or mechanisms functioning within an organism, whereas pathology is the medical study that covers conditions generally found during a disease state. Pathology is the study of abnormal or undesirable conditions, whereas pathophysiology is the study of the functional changes that occur within an individual as a result of a disease or pathologic state. Pathophysiology is the study of aberrant changes in biological functions that are the origins, consequences, or concomitants of disease processes. It is derived from the Greek words "pathos" (suffering), "physis" (nature, origin), and "logos" (study of). Pathophysiology research focuses on biological processes that are directly linked to disease processes in physical, mental, and psychophysiological diseases and disorders (e.g., alterations in the endocrine system, in certain neuro-transmitters, or inflammatory parameters related to the activity of the immune system).

Pharmacology is a science that helps people all around the world live better lives for longer periods of time, and it can be found almost anywhere. When you go to the dentist and get an injection to numb your mouth, pharmacology is there. When you take a headache medicine, pharmacology is present. Hay fever medications, antibiotics, cancer therapies, and a variety of other medicines were developed by pharmacologists, and millions of people use them every day. Pharmacology is at the forefront of our effort to ensure that everyone has the chance to live longer, healthier lives.
