Pathology News and Research RSS Feed - Pathology News and Research

Pathology is the study and diagnosis of disease through examination of organs, tissues, bodily fluids, and whole bodies (autopsies). The term also encompasses the related scientific study of disease processes, called General pathology.

Medical pathology is divided in two main branches, Anatomical pathology and Clinical pathology. Veterinary pathology is concerned with animal disease whereas Phytopathology is the study of plant diseases.

New laboratory model replicates early phase of Parkinson's before onset of motor symptoms

New laboratory model replicates early phase of Parkinson's before onset of motor symptoms

They're two of the biggest mysteries in Parkinson's disease research--where does the disease start? And how can it be stopped early in the process? Now, a new laboratory model of Parkinson's is giving scientists an inside look at what happens in the brain years before motor symptoms appear. [More]
