This module is only available to those students who enter under the B990 programme. Prerequisites: Tissue Biology (SBC101). This module provides an overview of basic pathological mechanisms including cell injury, wound healing, inflammation and cell adaptations. The process of neoplasia and the characteristics of major solid tumours will be covered including a review of the mechanisms of tumour spread. The Haematology component will cover basic haematopoiesis, anaemia, haemaglobinophathies, thalassaemia, myelodysplasia, haematological malignancies, haemostasis and bleeding and thrombotic disorders of haemostasis. An overview of the history and basis of blood transfusion and its complications will also be provided.The practical sessions will build on the earlier Microanatomy, Histology and Cytology Module in providing exposure to the histological and cytological interpretation of disease.
