Short summary (English)

Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Zagreb are engaged for many years in ecotoxicology research of heavy metals (wild animals, fishes, marine mammals, farm animals). In addition, we investigate immunomodilatory activity of some drugs, e.g. levamisole in laboratory and domestic animals. Additionaly, we are involved in current research of potentially therapeutic gastric peptides in collaboration with Departments of Pharmacology and Pathology from Zagreb School of Medicine. In last 20 years we are writing the expert reports for veterinary-medicinal products which is used for registration procedure.

Short summary (Croatian)

Zavod za farmakologiju i toksikologiju Veterinarskog fakulteta Sveučilišta u Zagrebu bavi se već dugi niz godina istraživanjem ekotoksikologije teških metala (divljač, ribe, morski sisavci, domaće životinje). Osim toga, na našem Zavodu istražujemo imunomodulacijsko djelovanje levamisola kod laboratorijskih i domaćih životinja, poglavito kod odbite prasadi pokusno cijepljene protiv kolibaciloze. U suradnji sa Zavodima za farmakologiju i patologiju Medicinskog fakulteta Sveučilišta u Zagrebu istražujemo učinak želučanih peptida u modelima bolesti ljudi i životinja. U posljednih dvadesetak godina izrađuju se ekspertni izvještaji o veterinarskim lijekovima koji se koriste u postupcima njihove registracije.
