Importance of Biochemistry in Pharmacy
Transcript of Importance of Biochemistry in Pharmacy
Use of Biochemistry
Gives an idea of drugs' constitution
Its change of degradation with varying temperature
Their metabolism by biochemical reactions (in presence of enzymes & other substances)
generic name: acetaminophen/ paracetamol
Metabolism of Acetaminophen
Role of a Pharmacist
Detection /Preventions of ADRs (Adverse drug reaction)
1. Mechanism of action: inhibits
in the body blocks synthesis of
involved in pain pathways
By: Priyanka Prince &
Chemistry ( or chemical activity) of living things
Checking for contraindications
Choice and monitoring of therapy
Know which parameters may be affected by drugs
Must understand common biochemical tests
molecular formula:C H NO
relieves pain and decreases fever
3. max dose: 4g/day
of alcohol (which is also metabolized in liver) is consumed
are enhanced and the pathway to toxic product is followed (more often)
higher risk of toxicity
and liver damage,
ENZYMES, CARBOHYDRATES, PROTEINS, DNA, RNA, etc.
Other Effects on Metabolism
Addition of alcohol
lmao you are really high
U ALREADY ACE EVERYTHING!!
no not really... :( there is always room for improvement and sometimes I just wish I was someone else like my sis or something... DX
so you'll be reading 1, 2, 3 slides
:( I really mean it... I wonder if everyone feels like that. wanting to be someone else
dunno but I just don't feel like myself ever since grade 7... lots happened
so back on to the presentation?
lol so are you good with 1-5 slides?
U SAID 1-3
5th one is the role of pharmacist
If you want something else from later parts I can switch with you; whatever you feel like.
NO IT'S FINE
alrighty... so i'll do from 6-11
9 is the video
would you like to do the conclusion??? >:D
that I still have to write
omg such a troll O_O
LET'S DO THE CONCLUSION TOGETHR
let's make a new slide
circle or square?
yay isn't an option
Biochemistry is essential for studies in pharmacy, because:
interaction of a drug
with the human body
educates them on ADRs and dangers of the drug
and the areas of the body that are exposed to risks
improve the performance of medicine in the future
excretion from the kidney
