Pharmacology is  the branch of medicine concerned about the utilizations, impacts, and methods of action of drugs, where a drug can be extensively characterized as any man-made, natural, or endogenous (from inside the body) molecule which applies a biochemical or physiological impact on the cell, tissue, organ, or living being.

The field includes 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 antipathogenic capabilities.  The two principle zones of pharmacology are pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics.

Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics

Pharmacokinetics is the procedure of the take-up of drugs by the body, the biotransformation they experience, the circulation of the drugs and their metabolites in the tissues, and the disposal of the drugs and their metabolites from the body over some stretch of time, While Pharmacodynamics is the investigation of pharmacological activities of drugs on living systems, incorporating the responses with and binding to cell constituents, and the biochemical and physiological outcomes of these activities.

Pharmacology and toxicology

Toxicology is the investigation of the adverse impacts of chemicals (including drugs) on living systems and the way to forestall or improve such impacts. In addition to therapeutic agents, toxicologists inspect numerous ecological agents and chemical compounds that are synthesized by people or that originate in nature. The lethal impacts of these agents may go from unsettling influences in development patterns, inconvenience, ailment or demise of individual living beings or on entire biological communities. There are numerous subspecialties of toxicology including: clinical toxicology, administrative toxicology (both of these found in the pharmaceutical and toxicology industry), forensic toxicology, Occupational toxicology, and hazard evaluation.

Pharmacology and toxicology are fundamentally the same as orders that require a comprehension of essential properties and activities of chemicals. However, pharmacology puts more accentuation on the remedial impacts of chemicals (particularly drugs)  while toxicology focusses more on the unfavorable impacts of chemicals and hazard evaluation.
