Go Toxicology


Toxicology is a science that studies the physical and chemical properties of poisons, the mechanisms of their action on the body and changes in its state under the influence of poisons. Toxicology is also seeking remedies for the prevention and treatment of poisoning, as well as the potential benefits of using toxic effects in various areas of biology and medicine. In terms of its tasks and research methods, toxicology is closely related to pharmacology (see). This is because some medicinal substances in large doses can have a toxic effect and, conversely, some poisons in small doses have a therapeutic effect.
