AbstractThe two-semester lecture course will provide a basic understanding of mechanisms of drug action, pharmacological properties and therapeutic uses of important classes of drugs. The lectures are intended for students of pharmacy and health sciences.
ObjectiveThe lectures will provide a comprehensive survey of pharmacology and toxicology. Special emphasis is placed on the interrelationship between pharmacological, pathophysiological and clinical aspects.
ContentTopics include disease-relevant macroscopic, microscopic, pathobiochemical and functional disturbances of specific organs and organ systems. The lectures integrate disease pathology with mechanisms of drug action, usage, pharmacokinetics, side effects, toxicology, contraindications and dosage of relevant drug classes. Basic principles of clinical pharmacology and pharmacotherapy will be covered.
Lecture notesA script is provided for each lecture, which contains major contents of the lecture and defines exam-relevant topics. The scripts do not replace the lectures.
