Learning outcomes

The basic aim of the course : (i) to acquire the conceptual and scientific tools to explain the causes and mechanisms of human disease and the role of the immune system; (ii) to examine molecular mechanisms responsible for cell and tissue damage and implicated in the host response to cell damage and in the repair of tissue injury. In addition, the course addresses pathophysiological mechanisms at the basis of alterations of the host main homeostatic systems, compensation responses induced by these alterations and their potential significance as mechanisms of diseases. Moreover, tumor eathiology, molecular mechanisms responsible of neoplastic transformation, development of primary tumors and metastasis, and the systemic consequences of tumor-related pathologies (paraneoplastic syndromes, chacexia) will be explored. Particular attention will be devoted to the acquisition of scientific terms used in pathology. IMMUNOLOGY MODULE The fundamental objective of the course of immunology is the acquisition of the conceptual and scientific instruments for the understanding the function of the immune system both in healthy and disease state. In particular the objectives are: 1. Acquisition of the knowledge of the fundamental biological mechanisms regulating the functions of the immune system in the protection against diseases; 2. Acquisition of the knowledge of pathologic mechanisms of the immune system, in particular in the hypersensibility, autoimmunity and immunodeficiency phenomena; 3. In-depth analysis of the immunology of the oral cavity; 4. Immune patology of the oral cavity; 5. Systemic immune pathology and its representation at the level of the oral cavity. GENERAL PATHOLOGY MODULE The basic aim of the course is the acquisition of the conceptual and scientific tools to explain the causes and mechanisms of human diseases. Specifically: 1) to understand the principal chemical, physical and biological causes of cell and tissue damage; 2) to understand tissue reaction to damage, that are determinat in acute and chronic physiopathologic processes: focus in inflammation, hemostasis and tissue repair; 3) to understand aethiopathogenesis of neoplastic transformation. Particular attention will be devoted to the acquisition of scientific terms used in pathology.
