Edema is the swelling of tissues that occurs when excessive fluid accumulates within the tissue. Fluid comprised of water and electrolytes, with a very small amount of protein and other macromolecules, normally leaves capillaries and small postcapillary venules by a process called filtration. Filtration is primarily driven by the capillary hydrostatic pressure, and the amount filtered per unit time is additionally influenced by the permeability of the vessel wall (endothelium and basement membrane).
Pharmacology is drug action on living systems mainly pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics studies. Pharmacology find new targets, better drugability of the chemical and natural compounds, harnessing the updates of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, bioinformatics and personilized medicine. Pharmacology is a journal dedicated to publish research articles in the area of Pharmacodynamics, Pharmacokinetics, AMDE studies of new drug, Toxicology studies, Drugability of the new Chemical and natural compounds and advanced fields like Pharmacogenetics, Pharmacogenomics, Pharmacoepidemiology and Environmental Pharmacology.
