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.
Scientists recently demonstrated a process by which specific cell types in human organs can be investigated with micrometer precision.
Similar to how a spider traps its prey, the cells of the human immune system cooperate to trap and “eat” bacteria.
Beckman researchers paired microscopy with artificial intelligence to develop a COVID-19 test that's fast, accurate, and cost-effective. All we need to do is say "ahh."
Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy employs engineered T cells to treat certain kinds of cancers.
Scientists sequenced the genome of a virulent Salmonella Enteritidis strain and discovered that it was both antibiotic-resistant and could affect people.
The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States in early 2020 left researchers struggling to identify lab models of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
A new study achieved the highest-ever resolution imaging of an infectious prion, offering atomic-level data of how these abnormal proteins assemble.
A research group has isolated monoclonal antibodies that, in laboratory and animal studies, prohibited infection by alphaviruses.
The virus that causes COVID-19 today is not the same as the one that first sickened people way back in December 2019.
Around 500,000 patients in China alone are considered to be living with a hereditary form of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
Despite causing a surge in infections this summer that has resulted in thousands of hospitalizations and deaths, the delta variant of the virus that causes COVID-19 is not particularly good at evading the antibodies generated by vaccination, according to a study by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
A new study has discovered a two-arm molecule that can effectively deplete cancer-protecting cells within tumors.
A high-fat diet disrupts the biology of the gut's inner lining and its microbial communities -; and promotes the production of a metabolite that may contribute to heart disease, according to a study published Aug. 13 in the journal Science.
Scientists have discovered that individuals recovering from COVID-19 produce identical clones, or groups, of antibody-producing white blood cells.
Scientists headed by the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center converted an immune cold cancer into one that responds to immunotherapy.
A biomarker that has proven to be a predictor for response to immunotherapies in melanoma patients also has clinical relevance for breast cancer patients, according to a new study published in Clinical Cancer Research, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.
In the past few decades, neurodegenerative diseases have turned into one of the top 10 worldwide causes of death.
The tiny organisms living in soil may have a greater effect on the yield and pest and disease resistance of crop plants grown in that soil than previously known.
Lymph nodes are critical to the body's immune response against tumors but paradoxically, cancer cells that spread, or metastasize, to lymph nodes can often avoid being eliminated by immune cells.
A new University of Iowa study suggests that metabolism of plant-based dietary substances by specific gut bacteria, which are lacking in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), may provide protection against the disease.
