Drug interaction is the interaction shown by a substance which affects the activity of the administered drug. The substance which is affecting a drug activity can be another drug when both are administered together. This can also be studied as drug-drug interaction. This interaction can be synergistic or antagonistic in nature thereby causing either an increased or decreased drugs effect. Also there may be a condition in which new a new effect can be produced that is neither produced on its own. However, the interactions may also exist between drug and food called drug-food interactions. There are cases where a particular food should not be taken when a particular drug is under administration as it may result in severe crisis within the system. These accidents usually occur as a result of misuse or due to lack of knowledge about the active ingredients involved in its composition. The study of these interactions therefore seems to be important from the point of practice of medicine. Also, there are cases where an interaction stands from a theoretical point but in actual clinical practice have no important repercussions. Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature. Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method. Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it.
