Five Classes Of Drugs

Posted on -

At the present time, there are five basic categories of medications used in the treatment of IBD. This section discusses each class of treatment options for IBD. Drug Classifications. There are thousands of different drugs, both legal and illegal. Because of this variety, it is often necessary to classify drugs into several types for legal, medical, and treatment purposes.

Hum kaun hai movie. (17) (13) • Non-steroidal chemical compounds with abortifacient activity. (3) • Steroidal compounds with abortifacient activity. (7) • A pesticide or chemical agent that kills mites and ticks.

This is a large class that includes carbamates, formamides, organochlorines, organophosphates, etc, that act as antibiotics or growth regulators. (1) • Compounds that bind to and inhibit the enzymatic activity of acetaldehyde dehydrogenases.

(2) Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors (0) see Acid Cysteine Proteinase Inhibitors (0) see (2) • A subclass of sodium channel blockers that are specific for ACID-SENSING SODIUM CHANNELS. (1) (3) • Compounds that bind to and block the stimulation of ADENOSINE A1 RECEPTORS. (4) • Compounds that selectively bind to and activate ADENOSINE A2 RECEPTORS. (9) • Compounds that selectively bind to and block the activation of ADENOSINE A2 RECEPTORS.

Adenosine Diphosphate Receptor Antagonists (0) see (3) • Compounds that bind to and inhibit the action of ADENYLYL CYCLASES. (2) (21) • Agents that are administered in association with anesthetics to increase effectiveness, improve delivery, or decrease required dosage. (128) • Substances that augment, stimulate, activate, potentiate, or modulate the immune response at either the cellular or humoral level. Kissanime.

The classical agents (Freund's adjuvant, BCG, Corynebacterium parvum, et al.) contain bacterial antigens. Some are endogenous (e.g., histamine, interferon, transfer factor, tuftsin, interleukin-1). Their mode of action is either non-specific, resulting in increased immune responsiveness to a wide variety of antigens, or antigen-specific, i.e., affecting a restricted type of immune response to a narrow group of antigens. The therapeutic efficacy of many biological response modifiers is related to their antigen-specific immunoadjuvanticity.

(2) • Agents that aid or increase the action of the principle drug (DRUG SYNERGISM) or that affect the absorption, mechanism of action, metabolism, or excretion of the primary drug (PHARMACOKINETICS) in such a way as to enhance its effects. (53) Adrenal Steroid Synthesis Inhibitors (0) see (278) • Drugs that act on adrenergic receptors or affect the life cycle of adrenergic transmitters.

Classifications of pharmaceutical drugs

Different Classes Of Drugs

Included here are adrenergic agonists and antagonists and agents that affect the synthesis, storage, uptake, metabolism, or release of adrenergic transmitters. (109) • Drugs that bind to and activate adrenergic receptors. (8) • Compounds that bind to and activate ADRENERGIC ALPHA-1 RECEPTORS.

Different classes of drugs pharmacology

(18) • Drugs that bind to and block the activation of ADRENERGIC ALPHA-1 RECEPTORS. (20) • Compounds that bind to and activate ADRENERGIC ALPHA-2 RECEPTORS.

(5) • Drugs that bind to and block the activation of ADRENERGIC ALPHA-2 RECEPTORS. (53) • Drugs that selectively bind to and activate alpha adrenergic receptors. (67) • Drugs that bind to but do not activate alpha-adrenergic receptors thereby blocking the actions of endogenous or exogenous adrenergic agonists.

Adrenergic alpha-antagonists are used in the treatment of hypertension, vasospasm, peripheral vascular disease, shock, and pheochromocytoma. (134) • Drugs that bind to but do not activate ADRENERGIC RECEPTORS. Adrenergic antagonists block the actions of the endogenous adrenergic transmitters EPINEPHRINE and NOREPINEPHRINE. (6) • Compounds that bind to and activate ADRENERGIC BETA-1 RECEPTORS. (10) • Drugs that bind to and block the activation of ADRENERGIC BETA-1 RECEPTORS. (17) • Compounds bind to and activate ADRENERGIC BETA-2 RECEPTORS. (1) • Drugs that bind to and block the activation of ADRENERGIC BETA-2 RECEPTORS.

(5) • Compounds that bind to and activate ADRENERGIC BETA-3 RECEPTORS. (1) (61) • Drugs that selectively bind to and activate beta-adrenergic receptors. (75) • Drugs that bind to but do not activate beta-adrenergic receptors thereby blocking the actions of beta-adrenergic agonists. Adrenergic beta-antagonists are used for treatment of hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, angina pectoris, glaucoma, migraine headaches, and anxiety. Adrenergic Effect (0) see Adrenergic Neurohumor Depleters (0) see Adrenergic Neuron Agents (0) see Adrenergic Release Inhibitors (0) see Adrenergic Synthesis Inhibitors (0) see (29) • Drugs that block the transport of adrenergic transmitters into axon terminals or into storage vesicles within terminals. The tricyclic antidepressants (ANTIDEPRESSIVE AGENTS, TRICYCLIC) and amphetamines are among the therapeutically important drugs that may act via inhibition of adrenergic transport. Many of these drugs also block transport of serotonin.
