The word pharmacodynamics, as used in this book, means the study of those examples of selective toxicity where the economic and uneconomic species are constituent cells in the one organism (see Section 1.0). Thus it stands in contrast to chemotherapy, which deals with systems where the uneconomic species is a totally different organism from the economic one.
