Pharmacology is the study of the effects of drugs. The other interesting branch known as the “clinical pharmacology” is interested in the effects of drugs in humans by which therapy is individualised according to the needs of each patient (based on the nature of his disease and its severity). The epidemiology is study of distribution and determinants of diseases in populations.
