Course Objectives The main aim of the course is to raise awareness about the environmental risks and consequences of natural or synthetic chemicals used for commercial purposes, whether informed or unconscious. It also presents the basic concepts of pharmacology and toxicology, the mechanisms and the behavior of toxic substances in the body.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • To guide students to understand the principles of toxicology
  • Introduce the effect of the route and dose of toxic materials to the organisms/introduce effect of the of drug application dose.
  • To introduce Dose-response relations
  • To define detoxification and biotransformation mechanisms
  • To inform about the Antioxidant enzyme systems, Phase I and Phase II Enzymes and their role in detoxification processes.
  • Reasons and results of the Mass poisoning and thier possible precautions.
Course Content The history of toxicology and pharmacology, basics of toxicology, dose response relationship, dose and route of intake of toxic materials, factors that affect toxic response: tendency, metabolism, metabolism for toxic response, biological and chemical factors that affect structure, determination of the examples of toxic effects caused by certain ch
