The Role of Pharmacodynamics in Drug Discovery and Development

Arden Jackson

Pharmacodynamics refers to the study of the interactions between drugs and the physiological processes of the body. In other words, it is the study of what a drug does to the body and how the body responds to it. Pharmacodynamics is a crucial aspect of pharmacology, the study of drugs and their effects on the body. Understanding pharmacodynamics is essential for the development of safe and effective drugs. Pharmacodynamics involves several key concepts, including drug potency, efficacy, affinity, and intrinsic activity. These concepts are important in understanding how drugs interact with the body and how they produce their effects.
