Pharmacology is the science of drugs. The objective of Pharmacology is mainly to provide such scientific data, using which one can choose a drug treatment of proven efficacy and safety from the various options available, to suit the patient.
Pharmacology has an important role in pharmaceutical industry where drug discovery and clinical trials are all based on pharmacological principles. Like other biomedical sciences, the boundaries of Pharmacology are extending and it tends to have more than other disciplines. The new arrivals on the fringe are Pharmacogenomics, Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics.
