Provide all the scientific informations in the field of general pathology suitable for the preparation of the student for those materials which will be used after the completion of training in the dietary field
The course is designed to provide students with a good foundation of knowledge in all aspects of Clinical Biochemistry. Introducing the fundamentals of instrumentation and methodology in the clinical chemistry and biochemistry laboratory medicine, lectures will cover urinalysis testing procedures and associated disease entities, as well as analysis of other body fluids. Clinical testing using automated and manual methods, measurement of pancreatic function and intestinal absorption, renal and liver function, enzymes, electrolytes, blood gases, lipids, toxicology, urinalysis, endocrinology, neurological, dysmetabolic, inflammatory and cardiovascular diseases.
The student must learn the biological and pathogenic characteristics of microorganisms that play a role in human pathology, with reference to bacteria, viruses and fungi. He must acquire suitable knowledge on the relationships between microorganisms and host in normal and pathological conditions, identify the transmission routes, know the characteristics, the activity, and the mechanism of action. He must know the main methods for cultivating microorganisms. Finally, the student must learn the role of microorganisms that are beneficial to human and their influence on the intestinal microbiome.
The course also aims to evaluate the main microorganisms that regulate human health and / or illness.
