Discussion: Alterations in Cellular Processes

Pathology is fundamentally the study of disease. Diseases occur for a variety of reasons. Some, however, such as cystic fibrosis and Parkinson’s disease, are caused by changes that hinder cells from working normally.

Understanding the signals and symptoms of cellular process changes is a vital step in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases. This information can also help the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) educate patients and guide them through their treatment programs.

You will review a case study and discuss the condition that is suggested for this Discussion. You investigate the reported symptoms and describe the cells involved, as well as probable modifications and consequences
