Description: BI 240 Pathophysiology emphasizes the fundamental concepts of disease processes. The course covers the basic principles of physiologic dysfunction, such as mechanisms of cell injury and cell death, inflammation, necrosis, tissue regeneration, infectious disease and neoplasia, the body’s normal response to insult or injury, and disease manifestation. These principles are then applied to dysfunction of the major organ systems: Pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and treatment of various systemic diseases are examined and discussed.
