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
