Cardiac Pharmacology

Cardiovascular pharmacology is the study of the effects of drugs on the entire cardiovascular system, including the heart and blood vessels. The field encompasses drug composition and properties, synthesis and drug design, molecular and cellular mechanisms, organ/systems mechanisms, signal transduction/cellular communication, molecular diagnostics, interactions, toxicology, chemical biology, therapy and medical applications and ant pathogenic capabilities. The two main areas of pharmacology are pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics.
