Emphasis is on the integration and regulation of the metabolic pathways of biomolecules. The practical course will give the importance of enzymes and biomolecules in the pathological findings of various disease conditions.


The topics covered include the physico-chemical properties of drug molecules such as pH, solubility, interfacial phenomena, diffusion and dissolution, rheology, micromeritics and study of disperse systems.

General pharmacology course typically covers principles and mechanisms of drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and effects. Specific topics include actions, effects, and indications for the drug classes: autacoids histamine, serotonin and ergot alkaloids and immunosuppressant agents.
