Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): environmental contaminant
Any minor or unwanted substance introduced into the environment that can have undesired effects.
Biological Role(s): adrenergic agent
Any agent that acts on an adrenergic receptor or affects the life cycle of an adrenergic transmitter.
A xenobiotic (Greek, xenos "foreign"; bios "life") is a compound that is foreign to a living organism. Principal xenobiotics include: drugs, carcinogens and various compounds that have been introduced into the environment by artificial means.
Application(s): anti-inflammatory drug
A substance that reduces or suppresses inflammation.
neuroprotective agent
Any compound that can be used for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders.
adrenergic agent
Any agent that acts on an adrenergic receptor or affects the life cycle of an adrenergic transmitter.
A drug used to prevent nausea or vomiting. An antiemetic may act by a wide range of mechanisms: it might affect the medullary control centres (the vomiting centre and the chemoreceptive trigger zone) or affect the peripheral receptors.
