Pathology and Pathophysiology


Pathology delves into the study of diseases, investigating their causes, mechanisms, and effects on the body's tissues and organs. It's like a detective work of the medical world, aiming to understand the nature of diseases at a cellular and molecular level. From identifying abnormalities in tissues through microscopic examination to unraveling the intricate pathways of disease progression, pathology provides crucial insights into diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment strategies.

On the other hand, pathophysiology focuses on understanding how diseases disrupt the body's normal physiological processes. It's the study of functional changes that occur as a result of disease, examining the alterations in organ systems, biochemical pathways, and cellular functions. By elucidating the mechanisms underlying disease manifestations, pathophysiology bridges the gap between pathology and clinical practice, enabling healthcare professionals to comprehend the root causes of symptoms and tailor interventions accordingly.

Together, pathology and pathophysiology form the cornerstone of medical understanding, offering a comprehensive framework for unraveling the complexities of disease. Their scope ranges from basic research to clinical practice, encompassing fields like oncology, infectious diseases, immunology, and beyond. With advancements in technology and scientific methodologies, the realm of pathology and pathophysiology continues to expand, driving innovation and improving patient care.

Pathology and Pathophysiology a bimonthly publishing Open Access journal aims to publish a wide range of topics that involves the study of the mechanisms behind cell and tissue injury, diagnosis of illness through microscopic analysis, as well as understanding how the body responds to and repairs injury.

Pathology and Pathophysiology welcome scholars across the globe to submit their original research papers fulfilling the requisite criterion. The journal also accepts review, short communication, editorial, expert review, and letter to the editor. All the manuscripts published by Pathology and Pathophysiology undergo rapid, quality, and quick review processing by eminent editorial and review team maintaining high standards and ethics of publishing.

The scholarly content published online will be freely available to every reader anywhere in the world to read, download, copy, reuse and distribute, provided that the original work is properly cited.
