The course is designed to expose students to the principles and methods that should be used to determine whether a causal relationship exists between specific doses of an agent and an alleged adverse effect, observed primarily in humans. Integration of principles and methods of toxicology is extremely important since the primary purpose of toxicology is to predict human toxicity. Toxicological data obtained in animal studies must be placed in proper relationship to the exposure observed in human population. The course deals with organ systems and whole target organs, selected classes of toxic agents and the application of toxicological principles are covered. Students are assigned a topic for a short presentation. Course notes: Prerequisites: NURS 404, and organic Chemistry. Nur 422 must be taking prior or concurrent to this course.
