It gives me a great pleasure, to write this editorial to the journal of Acta Scientific; Pharmacology (AS Pharmacology). Editorials by nature, are opinion articles expressing a point of view. In this day and age of Personalized or Precision Medicine, definitions and boundaries of various medical specialties are fast disappearing. Pharmacology as we knew, when we studied several decades ago, was the branch of medicine concerned with the uses, effects, and modes of action of drugs. Wikipedia describes pharmacology, as the branch of pharmaceutical sciences, which is concerned with the study of drug or medication action, where a drug can be broadly or narrowly defined as any man made, natural or endogenous molecule, which exerts a biochemical or physiological effect on the cell, tissue, organ or organism.
