CHEM 402 Toxicology

Credits

3 cr.

Prerequisite

CHEM 314 and CHEM 324.

Course Description

This course investigates the effects of xenobiotics on living systems. Integrating principles taken from chemistry, biology, pharmacology, and biochemistry, dose-response relationships between chemical exposures and disease states are identified. Basic processes central to understanding toxicological events including ADME (absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion) are covered in detail. Selected toxicants, drugs, and poisons are studied and include representatives of various structural classes that induce pulmonary, hepatic, renal, cardiac, hematologic, and neurologic toxicity.
