Continuing from Pharmacology I, expand your knowledge of how drugs interact with the human body into several additional major body systems, including the cardiovascular, urinary, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and reproductive systems, with particular emphasis on the endocrine and immune systems.
Examine the components and functions of each of these systems, along with diseases and conditions that affect them, including cancer and diabetes. And of course you will study the drugs that are used to treat such conditions with respect to their mechanisms of action and any therapeutic and adverse effects they entail.
* A 3-credit StraighterLine course is estimated to require approximately 75 hours of study time. Dedicating 17-20 hours per week should allow a student to finish within a single month subscription. That estimate is not guaranteed, and individual experience may differ. Prices do not include books.
