The Systemic Pathophysiology and Therapeutics subject builds on the basic concepts of physiology to explain how the normal functioning of the human body can become altered in the disease state. Disorders affecting major organ systems in the body, namely the cardiovascular, respiratory, genitourinary, gastrointestinal, and endocrine systems will be studied. The nervous system is covered separately in Neuropharmacology (PP3252:03). Having examined the basis for abnormal function in disease, we then explore how drug treatments may be used to help restore normal function. In addition to the theoretical basis for drug intervention, the practical considerations of managing these treatments will also be discussed.
