Pharmacological Perspectives of Toxic Chemicals and Their Antidotes.

Pharmacological Perspectives of Toxic Chemicals and Their Antidotes. American Journal of Therapeutics13(1):89, January-February 2006.

James A. Romano, Steven I. Baskin, K. Sekhar. This is the first book on toxic chemicals that puts a special focus on chemical weapons and bioterrorism. Also discussed are a number of antidotes, which are being used, or currently being investigated, for the treatments of the common toxicants.

Yet their description and the understanding of their evolutionary history are far from complete.

This widespread distribution of the plant could be attributed to the phytochemical and pharmacological characteristics. In the DRLE toxic test, overdose of DRLE showed the high safety in normal mice and may have the ability to remove the metabolic wastes in blood. In conclusion, we demonstrated for the first time that DRLE has the cardioprotective effects by activating the vasodilation through NO pathway and preventing the myocyte injury via inhibition of TNF-alpha pathway. Yet their description and the understanding of their evolutionary history are far from complete.

Pharmacology is the branch of pharmaceutical sciences which is concerned with the study of drug or medication .

Pharmacology is the branch of pharmaceutical sciences which is concerned with the study of drug or medication action, where a drug can be broadly defined as any man-made, natural, or endogenous (from within the body) molecule which exerts a biochemical or physiological effect on the cell, tissue, organ, or organism (sometimes the word pharmacon is used as a term to encompass. these endogenous and exogenous bioactive species). More specifically, it is the study of the interactions that occur between a living organism and chemicals that affect normal or abnormal biochemical function.

A number of antidotes are toxic in their own right and may cause . An antidote to poisons may be chemical, pharmacological, or physiological in nature. These counteract or neutralize the effect of a poison.

A number of antidotes are toxic in their own right and may cause serious toxicosis if used when the animal is misdiagnosed, or if the antidote is given for too long a course. For example, atropine in the absence of anticholinesterase poisoning can cause life-threatening atropine poisoning, and the course of calcium disodium EDTA in lead poisoning must be limited because of the toxicity of the antidote.

Bees can suffer serious effects from toxic chemicals in their environments. These include various synthetic chemicals, particularly insecticides, as well as a variety of naturally occurring chemicals from plants, such as ethanol resulting from the fermentation of organic materials. Bee intoxication can result from exposure to ethanol from fermented nectar, ripe fruits, and manmade and natural chemicals in the environment.

This book covers topics of current interest like pharmacology of nitric oxide, oxidative stress, modulation of brain cytochrome p450s by. .Toxicology and Pharmacology of Brevetoxins. Toxic Chemicals and Their Mode of Action. Non-Cholinesterase Actons of Anticholinesterases.

This book covers topics of current interest like pharmacology of nitric oxide, oxidative stress, modulation of brain cytochrome p450s by environmental chemicals, modalities of nociception and the underlying molecular mechanisms including areas of pharmacology and toxicological interest never discussed in detail like capsaicin, cyanide, arsenic toxicity and cyanobacterial toxin etc. A number of antidotes, which are being used, or currently being investigated, for the treatments of the above toxicants are also discussed in this book.
