Cell, Tissue and Disease: The Basis of Pathology

The new edition of this well-known text is an introduction to general pathology: a subject that bridges the divide between the basic biological sciences and the practice of clinical medicine. The functional and structural changes that occur in cells and tissues as a result of direct damage by, or reactions to, a wide variety of unfavourable circumstances are described. Full account is taken of the rapidly increasing understanding of the underlying molecular mechanisms.
