188.860.01 TUTORIAL IN TISSUE INJURY, INFLAMMATION, AND REPAIR
- AM Dannenberg Jr.
Covers the biochemical and pathophysiological mechanisms of acute and chronic inflammation, including immediate and delayed hypersensitivity and the response to physical, chemical, and microbial tissue damage. Discusses cell membrane function; capillary permeability; histamine, kinins, plasmin, complement, icosanoids; blood clotting; chemotaxis; and other inflammatory mediators produced by various blood cells.
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
- Assess how tissues respond to injury.
- Analyze what starts and stops the inflammatory process.
- Identify how tissues repair.
- Integrate assigned readings with emerging knowledge of tissue pathology through one-on-one discussion.
- Thursday 5:30 - 6:50
