OVERVIEW

The Course is meant to give an understanding of the main causes of disease and knowledge of the physiological response to cell and tissue damage. The Course gives also insights into the pathogenesis of important processes such as inflammation, neoplastic transformation, metabolic and blood related disorders

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Knowledge of different aspects of general physiopathology that enable graduate students to explore or expand any field connected to this topic.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The study of the molecular mechanisms underlying cell and tissue alterations leads to the deep knowledge of pathogenetic mechanisms of diseases. This is  fundamental  and allows the student to form a solid cultural base and acquire the critical tools necessary for their professional training. The student will be able to recognize cellular and tissue alterations characteristic of different pathologies and to correlate the different topics of the course by using specific terminology.

 

TEACHING METHODS

The module consists of lectures delivered through multimedia presentations.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Ethiology of diseases - genetic or environmental causes of disease ( trauma - radiations -temperature) and causes of chemical origin.

Cell damage and death

General features of the innate and adaptive immune response.

The inflammatory process, mechanisms of tissue repair.

Chronic inflammation - fibrosis

General oncology: ethiology, molecular mechanisms of carcinogenesis, cancer progression. Tumor classification  

RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY

 All the slides used during the lectures and other teaching material will be available on AulaWeb at the end of each cycle of lessons.The suggested books are available at the teacher office together with other books for further study.
