GHHE 000/5345 - Autonomic and Autocoid Pharmacology and Toxicology (3 cr.)



Prerequisites
permission of Instructor.

Description
The autonomic nervous system is pervasive anatomically and physiologically. In recent decades the parallel between nervous system and immune system and their interaction in homeostatic and pathological conditions have become evident and are often targets of intervention. This course reviews the homeostatic physiology and interaction of these systems, as well as their role in disease processes such as innate immunity, hypersensitivities and autoimmune disease. The emphasis is placed on chemical mediators and their activity as elaborated by the two systems and as potential therapeutic targets.
