Drug: Activity, Phases And Classification! Trivia Questions Quiz

The human body and its organs face a lot of dangers from the outside world daily, and the mechanisms it has put in place for safety may at times fail to function correctly, for example, the white blood cells. This being said, there are a number of drugs given out to bring the body back to normal operation. Test your knowledge on drug activity, phases, and classification by taking the test below.
