Immunopharmacology: Drugs and the immune system

Author(s):
Poonam Sharma and Zakiya Usmani
Abstract:
Immunopharmacology, a dynamic field at the intersection of immunology and pharmacology, explores the intricate relationship between drugs and the immune system. This research paper delves into the multifaceted interactions of various pharmaceutical agents with the immune system, elucidating their mechanisms of action, therapeutic implications, and potential adverse effects. Through a comprehensive review of recent literature and experimental findings, this study aims to provide a nuanced understanding of how drugs modulate immune responses, both enhancing and suppressing immunity as needed. Moreover, it examines the role of immunopharmacology in the treatment of autoimmune diseases, inflammatory disorders, cancer, and infectious diseases, highlighting the emerging therapeutic strategies and innovative drug developments in this rapidly evolving field. By unraveling the complexities of drug-immune system interactions, this paper contributes to the advancement of immunopharmacological research and fosters the development of novel therapeutic interventions with improved efficacy and safety profiles.
