The science of DRUGS. Pharmacology is concerned with the origins, isolation, purification, chemical structure and synthesis, assay, effects, uses, side effects, relative effectiveness of drugs and the influence of genetic factors on drug action. It thus includes, among other disciplines, GENETICS, ORGANIC CHEMISTRY, PHARMACOKINETICS, THERAPEUTICS and TOXICOLOGY.
