Learning outcomes

The basic aim of the course is the acquisition of Pathology conceptual tools and science to explain the causes and mechanisms of human disease. The program includes the main pathogenic factors: chemical, physical and biological agents and their effects (biological damage) on living matter, on cells and tissues, the reactions to the biological damage that are crucial in the process of healing / repair or disease, with particular reference mechanisms of immunity, inflammation, wound healing and chronic disease processes.
