Learning outcomes

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 on 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.
