Ethnopharmacology is the study of medicinally used substances, especially folk remedies, by diverse cultural or ethnic groups. Traditional medicine is a term applied to pre-scientific medical systems that possess bodies of medical knowledge, including pharmacopoeia, that are passed through generations from healer to healer. The combined use of vaccines and immunostimulants is emerging as one of the innovative approaches in adjuvant development. The role of herbal drugs as immunomodulator agents are well-documented and their importance in bioprospecting is obvious.

Pharmacovigilance is the process of monitoring the safety of medicines as used in everyday practice or in clinical programs. It helps to identify previously unrecognized adverse effects, adverse events or changes in the patterns of adverse effects. It is useful for assessing the risks and benefits of medicines to determine what action, if any, is necessary to improve their safe use. It provides information to users to optimize safe and effective use of medicines thereby monitoring the impact of any action taken.

Postmarketing surveillance of drugs is the practice of safety monitoring of the pharmaceutical drugs or medical devices after their release into the marketplace. This monitoring is an important part of the science of pharmacovigilance. The key role of post-marketing surveillance is to assure the efficacy and safety of drugs after they go into the market. Its role is also to establish proper methods of use of drugs consists of three systems, and they are the ADR collecting and reporting system, the reexamination system, and the reevaluation system.

Drug safety evaluation program is of paramount importance in the development of any new drug. Drug metabolites can play a significant role in overall drug toxicity and it is now accepted as a significant issue in drug development. The drug testing process begins with laboratory investigation, during this phase, extensive chemical and animal studies are performed. This helps to acquire a better understanding of how the drug works. Following this testing phase, the drug’s safety is assessed in a small group of healthy human volunteers. If all goes quite good, and the drug is deemed safe, its efficacy will be tested on a group of patients who have the targeted condition.

Neuropharmacology is the study of drugs that alter processes controlled by the nervous system. Molecular neuropharmacology involves the study of neurons and their neurochemical interactions, with the overall goal of developing drugs that have beneficial effects on neurological function. Neuropharmacology is merely concerned with neuromodulators, enzymes, second messengers, co-transporters, ion channels, neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, neurohormones, receptor proteins and their interactions in the central and peripheral nervous systems.

 

Psychopharmacology is the branch of pharmacology dealing with the study of the actions and the effects of psychoactive drugs. Psychopharmacology is an interdisciplinary field combining psychology with pharmacology and dealing largely with psychotropic drugs, neurohormones, and, neurotransmitters.

It seeks to understand how drugs affect the human body as a single complex biological system. Instead of considering the effect of a drug to be the result of one specific drug-protein interaction, systems pharmacology considers the effect of a drug to be the outcome of the network of interactions a drug may have.

Toxicology is a branch of science that deals with poisons and their effect on the living organisms. A poison can be defined as any substance that causes a harmful effect when administered, either by accident or design, to a living organism. Toxicology also includes the study of harmful effects which are the cause of various kinds of physical phenomena, such as radiation and noise.

There are various tests for the determination of toxicology. These tests are carried out by pharmaceutical industries biotechnology companies and by contract research organizations. The toxicity of substances can be observed by studying the accidental exposures to a substance or by in vitro studies using cells/ cell lines or by in vivo exposure on experimental animals. Each year there are around a million of primates and non–primates used for toxicology tests in Europe. Animal testing is currently banned for cosmetic purposes across the European Union.

Pharmaceutical chemists are involved in the development and assessment of therapeutic compounds. Pharmaceutical chemistry encompasses drug design, drug synthesis, and the evaluation of drug efficacy (how effective it is in treating a condition) and drug safety. Drug discovery is the core of pharmaceutical chemistry. The drug discovery process includes all the stages of drug development, from targeting a disease or medical condition to toxicity studies in animals, or even, by some definitions, testing the drug on human subjects. Typically, conditions that affect a larger percentage of the population receive more attention and more research funding.
