Scientific Sessions

Session01: Overview of Pathology

Pathology is a subspecialty in the field of medicine which deals with the study of diseases. The word Pathology derives its origin from the Greek words “Pathos” meaning “disease” and “Logos” meaning “study”. A pathological condition is the one that is caused by a disease, rather than occurring physiologically. Pathology includes the cause, epidemiology, pathogenesis, morphogenesis, and manifestations of the disease; the main role of a pathologist is the prognosis, diagnosis, treatment of the disease and patient care using novel techniques. There are four main types of disease: infectious diseases, deficiency diseases, genetic diseases ( hereditary and non-hereditary), and physiological diseases. Pathology is a vast field and there are many branches such as Anatomical Pathology, Clinical Pathology, Psycho Pathology, Molecular Pathology and many more. Advancements in techniques used in the Pathological treatment of diseases is rapidly increasing and this field has a vast scope for development.

Session02: Cyber Pathology

Cyber Pathology is the study of internet addicts who are deeply lured and obsessed with the internet. Cyber victims fall prey to Online gambling, online auctions and computer games. Affected individuals become cyber addicts who have a heightened level of anxiety, they become potential computer hackers and a threat to undisclosed information and trade secrets. Cyber Sex Addiction is a form of virtual internet sexual activity that has serious negative consequences. Cyber Security is the protection of computer hard wares and soft wares from potential thefts and damage. A globally interconnected network of technology called Cyberspace has rapidly increased over the years and has become an essential part of mankind. A set of rules and ethics called Cyber Ethics should be followed to respect the dignity of every individual who accesses the internet. Protection of laboratory data is critical and there are more ransomware attacks using patient data which is one of the major threats to the Healthcare industry.

Session03: Psycho Pathology

Psycho Pathology originates from the Greek words “psyche” meaning “soul”; “pathos” meaning “suffering” and “logos” meaning “study”. It is the study of abnormal behavioral which manifests the indication of a mental disorder. Diagnosing a mental disorder involves Deviance which means diverging from normal behavior which violates the social norms; Distress is having a negative feeling against one’s self, Dysfunction is the inability to perform daily functions which affect the lifestyle and Danger imply a change in behavioral nature which indicates mental illness. Four kinds of approaches are being analyzed which includes the biological, behavioral, psychodynamic and cognitive approach. There are numerous disorders related to mental health which are being studied to know the causes and find a better prevention of such abnormalities.

Session04: Drug Addiction Pathology

The term Substance Use Disorder implies the abnormal use and intake of drugs which leads to drug addiction. Recurrent usage of drugs affects the brain psychically and as well normal health, which in turn has an effect on the social life of the individual. Drugs are categorized into seven types namely: Stimulants, Depressants, Hallucinogens, Dissociatives, Opioids, Inhalants, and Cannabis. There are numerous drug addictions such as Alcoholism; Cocaine, Opioid, Amphetamine Use Disorders. Diagnosis is done with the help of medical reports, psychological assessment, physical examination and from concerned ones. Treatment involves detoxification which includes withdrawal from the drugs and stability effects; and psychological motivation to maintain abstinence from the intake of drugs. It is the individual’s mind to have a proper decision making towards good or bad and this has an impact on one’s well being. Addicts having a powerful mind can make a step to restrict themselves from drug usage.

Session05: Nutrition Pathology

Malnutrition or abnormal dietary intake which leads to disease is a term which applies to Nutrition Pathology. Our body exposes numerous toxins through the environment and food and hence it is necessary to flush out these pathogenic toxins by the xenobiotic metabolism. Nutritional deficiencies have decreased over the past decade giving importance to the dietary needs and requirements. Malnutrition is of two types namely: Under Nutrition and Over Nutrition. Poor diet, eating disorders, lack of awareness, obesity, and certain diseases are the main causes of nutritional deficiencies. Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) are a set of values used to plan a healthy diet which includes Estimated Average Requirements, Recommended Dietary Allowances, Adequate Intake, and Tolerable Upper Intake Levels. Medical Nutrition Therapy is a therapeutic approach to treat certain diseased conditions, and it is mainly effective in treating Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. This therapy is recommended within international professional guidelines.

Session06: Pathology and Food

One of the common terms used in Food Pathology is Food Eponyms which refers to disease pattern that resembles certain food items. These eponyms help a pathologist to identify complex pathological conditions. Mass production and distribution of food have a greater chance of contamination by foodborne microbes. The pathology of the processed food industry is earning profits by selling adulterated and taste addictive artificially flavored food which leads to eating disorders and lifestyle diseases. Anxiety over food as a result of starvation can lead to the progression of an eating disorder. Binge Eaters are not hungry all the time, although they have an urge to consume large quantities of food rapidly which is a symptom of Food insecurity and an Eating disorder. Food Allergy Testing is done by an allergist and the first step is the examination of medical history, followed by certain specific tests such as Skin prick test, Blood test, Oral food challenge, and Trial elimination diet. Food safety and quality are important aspects and the handling, preparation, and storage of food are important parameters to be taken care of.

Session07: Radiation Pathology

Radiation Pathology is a term which refers to the study of human tissues exposed to harmful ionizing radiations. Ionizing radiation can either mutate or genetically deform the cells and organs which can lead to various illnesses and diseases due to DNA damage, cell cycle arrest, and apoptosis. Radiation therapy for cancer has side effects associated with them. The damage to the tissues caused by exposure to ionizing radiations is called Radiation Injury. Recently, therapies, where patient’s own stem cells are being used to regenerate tissues, are considered since the procedure is easy. Radio Protectors, Surgical Treatment and Mitigators are also considered as options for treating radiation injury. The radiation dose for treatment of various diseases and cancer should be carefully considered and managed to prevent injury.

Session08: Gynecologic Pathology

Gynecologic Pathology is a medical sub-specialty which deals with the study and diagnosis of diseases involving the female genital tract. Gynecology originates from the Greek words “Gyno” meaning “woman” and “logos” meaning “study”. Medical or surgical therapies are considered for treatment of diseases involving the female reproductive system. A gynecologist performs operations such as Hysterectomy, Tubal Ligation, and Oophorectomy. Gynecologic cancer is cancer in ovary, uterus, vagina, vulva or cervix; extensive training is given to the specialists for the diagnosis and treatment. Obstetrics deals with the care of pregnant women throughout the course of pregnancy and childbirth. Both these fields related to female health with advancements are proving to be more effective and a ray of hope to all the women.

Session09: Breast Pathology

Breast Pathology includes diseases which may be cancerous or non-cancerous. A manifestation of Breast Cancer means losing the breast for life and hence for many women breast cancer is their worst fear. Neoplasm is the abnormal mass of tissue in the breast. Common Breast problems include breast pain, breast lumps, cysts, nipple discharge and changes in breast skin. Benign breast cancer can be treated without surgery with the use of Mammography, Ultrasound, Breast MRI and Needle Biopsies. A surgical oncologist who is specialized in treating various types of cancer can diagnose and perform surgery to treat breast cancer. Changing one’s lifestyle habits and limiting the dose of hormone therapy will prove to be effective in reducing the risk of breast cancer and other breast diseases.

Session10: Orthopedic Pathology

Bone Pathology is a sub-specialty of surgical pathology which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of bone diseases. The various types of bone disorders include osteoporosis, osteopenia, and osteomalacia. Bone pathologies include bone cancer, osteomyelitis, and bone cysts. Metastatic Bone Disease occurs due to the interaction between the tumor cells and bone cells and leads to disruption in bone metabolism. A Pathologic fracture is caused by diseases which leads to bone weakness. X-ray Radiography and CT Scan are valuable medical tests to determine the extent of the bone fracture. Radiotherapy and Cytotoxic Treatments are done in the treatment of advanced cancers. Getting advice from a physiotherapist on restorative exercise pattern orthotic aids, diet, and fluid intake can reduce the risk of dislocation of bones and joints in athletes.

Session11: Hemato Pathology

Hemato Pathology is medical sub-specialty which deals with the study of diseased hematopoietic cells. The term Hematopoiesis means the creation of new blood cells. Clot formation that is pathological due to excessive hemostasis is called Thrombosis. Hemostasis is the absence of bleeding which causes the blood to clot in the damaged vessel or artery itself. Researchers are working isolating stem cells having functioning factors for treating individuals with Hemophilia, which is an inherited blood disorder where the patient’s ability of the body to clot blood is severely reduced. Blood cell disorders like Anemia, Myeloma, Thrombocytosis, Thalassemia are common. Some types of blood disorders are cancerous while others are non-cancerous. HSC transplantation is currently an active area of research to regenerate blood cells without defects and abnormalities. Transfusion Medicine is a branch of clinical pathology which deals with the transfusion of blood and blood products. Hematopathology is an area of active research and scientists are working to find solutions to rare blood disorders.

Session12: Neurocristopathy

The stage of Embryo development during which there is abnormal expression, migration, differentiation, and necrosis of the Neural Crest Cells (NCC’s) neurological disorders. Neural Crest Cells arise from the developing embryo of vertebrates and is called the Fourth germ layer. There are four categories of Neural Crest: Trunk Neural Crest (tNCC), Cardiac Neural Crest (carNCC), Cranial Neural Crest (cNCC), and Sacral and Vagal Neural Crest. Some notable disorders of neural crest include Albinism, Neuroblastoma, Melanoma, Di George Syndrome and Hirschsprung Disease. Various disorders of thyroid, ear, skin, heart, craniofacial and digestive system are attributed to the malformation of a proper neural crest. Neuroblastoma can be treated by surgical resection. Folate deficiencies during conception period can lead to congenital abnormalities and; hence it is recommended to have sufficient intake of folate in food. Craniofacial defects are congenital with abnormalities in the growth of facial and skull bones. Researchers are active in this area using rDNA technology to find a cure for patients with Craniofacial defects.

Session13: Cardio Pathology

Cardio Pathology refers to any disease of the Heart. Major Heart Disorders include Coronary Artery Disease (CAD), Coronary Vascular Disease(CVD), Coronary Muscular Disease(Cardiomyopathy) and Arrhythmia. Heart Failure is a pathophysiologic state where the heart fails to pump blood in accordance with a requirement of metabolizing the tissues. To maintain the pumping of heart in such cases, compensatory mechanisms which increase cardiac muscle mass and blood volume are employed. Imaging techniques such as ECG and chest radiography are carried out to know the extent of diseased condition of the heart. Treatment to manage and cure heart diseases include Pharmacologic and Non- Pharmacologic Therapies and even surgical treatment options are available. A key to maintaining a healthy heart is to keep blood pressure and cholesterol levels under control and following good lifestyle habits.

Session14: Ophthalmic Pathology
Ophthalmic Pathology is a sub-specialty of surgical pathology which deals with the study of neoplastic and non-neoplastic eye diseases. There are several kinds of diseases that affect the eyes namely night blindness, conjunctivitis, cataract, glaucoma etc. Eye disorders include Myopia, Hypermetropia, Presbyopia, and Astigmatism. An Ophthalmologist is a doctor who is specialized in eye and vision care. An Optometrist has a degree in optometry and prescribes contact lenses. Both can diagnose and treat certain eye conditions and prescribe medications. One main difference between them is that an Ophthalmologist is specialized to perform an eye surgery whereas an optometrist is not. Laser in-situ keratomileusis is a trending eye surgery that corrects the corneal region of the eye; performed on individuals with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Following a proper diet with extra nutrition for the eyes and performing certain eye exercises will improve the eye vision.

Session15: Cerebro-Vascular Pathology

Cerebro-Vascular Pathology is the disorders that affect the brain and leads to unconsciousness or altered consciousness. The state of Coma occurs when the human brain is no longer alert due to brain injury, brain cancer, stroke, epilepsy, cerebral palsy or brain infections. Traumatic Brain Injury occurs when some external force injures the brain and leads to intracranial injury and causes severe brain trauma. Brian function is either permanently or temporarily impaired in such cases. Hematoma, focal lesions, and cerebral laceration are some of the notable pathologies of the brain following a traumatic brain injury. Studies on Brain hemodynamics currently include developing models to relate neural activity with the amount of blood and oxygen flow to the brain tissues and thus developing improved technologies such as Brain Oxygenation Dependent MRI and other networks. Imaging biomarkers are available for Alzheimer’s Disease which assess the pathologies of certain accumulated toxic or mutated bio-products in the brain.

Session16: Nephro Pathology

Nephropathology is a medical sub-specialty of pathology which deals with the diagnosis, management, and prognosis of renal diseases. Pathologic features of diseased kidneys include loss of renal cells, fibrosis, proteinuria, and hypoxia. Nephrosis is a common type of kidney disease characterized by non-inflamed kidneys whereas Nephritis is characterized by inflamed kidneys. There are several causes of kidney failure such as increased use of analgesics, diabetes, diet, and toxicity of chemotherapeutic agents. Implantable artificial kidney transplants are done to restore normal functioning of the kidney which is a better alternative to Dialysis. A renal dietitian monitors the dietary intake of the patients to manage toxin and water control. Smoking and alcohol should be avoided to prevent renal diseases. A healthy diet with high fibrous content should be followed to maintain the health of kidneys.

Session17: Clinical Chemistry Laboratory

Clinical Chemistry is a sub-field in Laboratory Medicine which deals with the analysis of body fluids for diagnostic and analytical purposes. Clinical diagnostic tests help to assess a person’s overall health. Clinical Pathology involves testing blood and body fluids, and examination of individual cells and tissues at the microscopic level to diagnose a disease. Diagnostic Bio-markers are used to detect them and identify the manifestation of a disease and also help in diagnosis, drug target identification and response. There are several disease and drug-related bio-markers available. The quality and safety of drugs and laboratory medicines should be monitored for minimal side effects and effective treatment during the course of drug therapy. A flow cytometer is used to detect the presence of cancerous cells in the body by analyzing the bone marrow cells or blood cells and determining the WBC count. Clinical lab techniques prove to be a necessity for understanding the pathological condition of a disease in patients.
