Experimental pharmacology (animal testing): A homoeopathic glimpse
Author(s): Dr. Sonu P
The usage of drugs was well established in prehistoric times, and many plants and animals were known to have either useful or poisonous effects. The foundation required for a fundamental understanding of how a drug acts at the organ and tissue levels was supplied by breakthroughs in chemistry and the burgeoning of physiology in the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries. It is a subfield of pharmacology that examines how medications interact with living things in controlled settings, including people and animals, and uses that information to generate novel therapeutic agents. Experimental pharmacology, often known as drug proving or Homoeopathic pathogenetic testing, is the foundation of Homoeopathic medicine. In the traditional method of pharmacological screening, novel chemical entities or biological extracts are first tested in isolated organs before being tested on whole animals or people. Acceptance of the Homoeopathic claims necessitates supporting proof of feasible mechanisms as well as excellent research examining its efficacy in experimental settings.
