Inflammation Pharmacology

by Pravin Shukle, MD

Inflammation pharmacology refers to the groups of drugs that are used for the regulation and control of the inflammatory response for therapeutic effect. From simple ibuprofen for pain control to DMARDs in rheumatoid arthritis, these groups of drugs are used most prominently for symptomatic relief, as well as the improvement of outcomes.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the pharmacology of acetylsalicylic acid and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), COX-2 inhibitors, disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), immunosuppressive drugs, and gout medication.

For optimal comprehension, the student is required to have a previous understanding of molecular and cell biology, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, the inflammatory cascade, humoral and cell immunity, and the pathophysiologies of rheumatoid diseases and gout.
