  • Prodrugs and drug latentiation: Basic concepts, prodrug of functional groups, bioprecursor  prodrugs, chemical delivery system.
Classification and mode of action, uses, structure activity relationship including  physicochemical, steric aspects and resents advances in research of the following categories of drugs:

Drugs affecting neurotransmission

  • Drugs affecting adrenergic neurotransmission: Neurochemistry and stereochemistry of norepinephrine, sympathomimetic agents, sympatholytic agents, drugs affecting catecholamine biosynthesis, drugs affecting catecholamine storage and release, ergot alkaloids, xanthine bronchodilators
  • Drugs affecting serotonergic neurotransmission: Neurochemistry and stereochemistry of serotonin, 5-HT agonists, 5-HT antagonists.
  • Local anesthetics: Molecular mechanism of action, chemical aspects.
Drugs affecting immune systems
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents: Chemistry of chemical mediators of inflammation (prostaglandins, thromboxanes, prostacyclin and leukotrienes), antipyretic analgesics.
  • Antihistaminics and related antiallergics: Neurochemistry and stereochemistry of histamine,
