Learning outcomes

The basic aim of the course of General Pathology and Immunology are: (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.
