Pathology

General pathology, also called investigative pathology, experimental pathology, or theoretical pathology,[citation needed] is a broad and complex scientificfield which seeks to understand the mechanisms of injury to cells and tissues, as well as the body's means of responding to and repairing injury. Areas of study include cellular adaptation to injury, necrosis, inflammation, wound healing, and neoplasia. It forms the foundation of pathology, the application of this knowledge to diagnose diseases in humans and animals.

The term general pathology is also used to describe the practice of both anatomical and clinical pathology.
