The new-born “phagocyte theory” was thus very well received by naturalists and by Virchow, the father of cellular pathology.
His celebrated work, "cellular pathology as based on Histology," published in 1856, marks a distinct epoch in the science.
Twenty years later, Virchow was to revolutionize pathology by the publication of his "cellular pathology."
Classical expression was given to the "colonial theory" of the organism by Virchow in his lectures on "cellular pathology."
Virchow was not happy when he saw the young men pour into the old bottle of cellular pathology the new wine of bacteriology.
cellular pathology n.
The interpretation of disease origins in terms of cellular alterations or the failure of cells to maintain homeostasis.
