BMS 325 - Toxicology
(3 cr.) Toxicology is the branch of science that investigates the complex interactions between exogenous chemicals and physical processes (e.g. radiation) with living organisms. This course entails an examination of the absorption, distribution, toxicokinetics, metabolism and elimination of exogenous substances from the body. Particular emphasis is placed on the effects of toxic agents on the following systems in humans: hepatobiliary, pulmonary, renal, nervous and reproductive. The role of toxic chemicals/physical agents in teratogenesis, mutagenesis and carcinogenesis also is studied. Prerequisite: BIO 102, BIO 102L, CHE 211; Every Year, Spring
