IMMUNOPHARMACOLOGY

Immunopharmacology is the intersection of immunology and pharmacology. It encompasses pharmacology of the mediators and cells which drive dysfunctional immunity and inflammation, how they interact to provide a robust response, and how dysfunctions in these pathways lead to pathology. Research in this area focuses on drugs that modulate the immune system, thus drawing from a diverse field of disciplines such as immunology, pharmacology, toxicology, pathology, cell biology, molecular biology and organic/synthetic/medicinal chemistry. The basis of immunopharmacology is the immune system itself, a highly diverse and complex system which comprises a very long list of cells, hormones, and other chemical signaling molecules. Immunopharmacology aims to produce new treatments and medications to help treat disease, or simply to increase scientific knowledge in the field. Immunopharmacological manipulation of the immune system includes the use of immunostimulant and immunosuppresant agents that encompass a wide range of drugs and nutritional products. The increasing awareness of immune system dysfunction as a basis of most chronic diseases has given rise to this discipline to the extent that there are several journals that focus specifically on immunopharmacological research.
