  • Diagnostic histology applied to cells and tissues of the reproductive system - Prof. Leonardo Della Salda - a.y. 2017/2018

    Leonardo Della Salda was born in S.Cristobal (Venezuela) on November 1st, 1960. He worked as a resident student within the Institute of General Pathology and Pathological Anatomy (University of Bologna) from 1983 to 1985 and got his degree in Vet. Medicine on December 18th, 1985. Since 1994 he has lectured in Veterinary Pathology at the University of Teramo. In September 1998 he was appointed as a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Pathologists and in the same year he was also appointed as an Associate Professor of Pathological Anatomy at the Veterinary School of the University of Teramo. On October 2nd 2000 he became "Full Professor" of Pathological Anatomy by the same University. Special emphasis has been placed, since 1997 up to date, on research and training activities concerning oncology, as well as on research and training activities regarding the dermatology, with special emphasis on the histopathology and the comparative studies with the human medicine. Relevant research and training activities have also concerned the ultrastructural pathology. Official Membership and vice-president "Associazione Italiana Dermatologi Umani e Veterinari (AIDUV)" (from 2002 up to date). Referee for Journal of Veterinary Medicine Series A, BMC Cancer, Acta veterinaria scandinavica. He is co-editor of the Journal of Elementology since 2010 ed member of the scientific board of Polish Journal of Sciences. He is member of the executive board (2011-2020) of the Consorzio Interuniversitario per la Bioncologia (CIMBO). He is author or co-author of numerous scientific papers most of them concerning comparative oncology, dermato-histopathology and ultrastructural pathology.
     

    INFO ABOUT THE COURSE


    OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE

    • Knowledge and understanding: This course aims to provide understanding of the pathological clinical manifestations of the reproductive system in domestic animals and humans, focusing on the pathogenesis of cell injury/death. Using the animal model, the student will acquire the necessary cytopreparation techniques to assess pathological reproductive structures.
    • Applying knowledge and understanding: After the course students will be able to apply their knowledge, understanding to demonstrate their ability to solve problems related to the biotechnology of reproduction multi disciplinary context in both the zoo technical field and in medically assisted procreation
    • Making judgements: Making judgement is developed through independent and group activities requiring an individual effort (self-evaluation tests) together with group (colleagues) comparison (laboratory exercises).
    • Communication: After the course students will be able to communicate clearly and concisely utilizing their conclusions, information, acquired knowledge, underpinning rationale, ideas, problems and solutions related to the topics covered by specialists and non-specialists. In particular, they will be able to present their conclusions on biotechnology issues in a logical, concise and rigorous manner and to communicate, using the appropriate technical-scientific language.
    • Learning skills: Students are expected to develop learning skills and strategies to enable them to study both continuously and independently the course content and library materials, consultation databases and other web information.

    PROGRAM 

    This course aims to provide understanding of the pathological clinical manifestations of the reproductive system in domestic animals and humans, focusing on the pathogenesis of cell injury/death. Using the animal model, the student will acquire the necessary cytopreparation techniques to assess pathological reproductive structures. The course consists of two units: Unit 1: Pathogenesis of cell injury/death and cytopreparation techniques  Unit 2: Diseases of the female reproductive system 


    UNIT 1: Pathogenesis of cell injury/death and cytopreparation techniques

    The unit aims to describe the morphological changes of cell injury/death, the process of apoptosis and principle of cytotechnique to reduce specimen to cellular presentation which can be interpreted and diagnosed, in particular of reproductive system. - Principle of cytotechnique - History of cytodiagnosis - Types of cytology samples - Evaluation of specimen - Staining Methods in Cytology - Techniques in Cytopathology - causes and pathogenesis of cell injury/death - describe the morphological changes of cell injury/death - process of apoptosis and necrosis


    UNIT 2: Diseases of the female reproductive system

    The female genital tract pathological clinical manifestations are studied and analysed. - Diseases of vulva and vagina - Diseases of utero - Diseases of tube and ovaries - Gestational and placental disorders
