  Pathology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pathology (in ancient Greek pathos = feeling, pain, suffering and logos = discourse or treatise [literally: "words"], i.e., system of formal study) is the study of the processes underlying disease and other forms of illness, harmful abnormality, or dysfunction.
Within biology, it means specifically the study of the structural and functional changes in cells, tissues and organs that underlie disease.
Speech pathology is a quite separate area mostly involved in helping patients with stroke or speech impediments.

 AllRefer.com - multiple chemical sensitivity (Pathology) - Encyclopedia
When exposed to the chemicals, people with MCS react with symptoms such as nausea, headache, dizziness, fatigue, impaired memory, rash, and respiratory difficulty.
Many researchers do not regard multiple chemical sensitivity as a medically valid syndrome, believing that the depression that frequently accompanies it is an indication that the symptoms are psychological in origin.
Nevertheless, many sufferers do seem to improve when they eliminate contact with the chemicals known to trigger their condition; in extreme cases this may mean confinement to specially treated living quarters.

 Chemical pathology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chemical pathology (also known as clinical biochemistry or clinical chemistry) is the area of pathology that is generally concerned with analysis of bodily fluids.
The discipline originated in the late 19th century with the use of simple chemical tests for various components of blood and urine.
Subsequently other techniques were applied including the use and measurement of enzyme activities, spectrophotometry, electrophoresis and immunoassay.

 MJA: Khoury et al., Error rates in Australian chemical pathology laboratories
We recently examined the accuracy of one part of the process of obtaining pathology test results in a hospital environment and found that the address of the referring doctor had been incorrectly recorded on 3% of all printed reports issued, delaying or preventing delivery of the final pathology report.
To address this question, we surveyed clinical pathology laboratories from both public and private sectors of five Australian States to determine whether error rates in pathology are as widespread and as clinically significant as our earlier study suggested.
Chemical pathology quality assurance (QA) data were from one cycle of analysis within the QA program (there are two or three cycles annually, depending on the program) during 1993 and 1994.
