Use Pharmacological Action Terms [mh] with a Drug

Most drugs and chemicals in the MeSH vocabulary are assigned one or more pharmacological actions to describe how they behave in the body or in the environment. You can find these terms in the MeSH Database record for the drug.

Tagging a pharmacological action term with [mh] targets those citations where the action of interest is discussed in the article.

Example:
antirheumatic agents [mh] methotrexate
