About the department keyboard_arrow_down

The Department of Neuropathology at the University Hospital Marburg under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Axel Pagenstecher deals with pathological changes in the central and peripheral nervous systems, cerebral meninges and skeletal muscles. The main task of the Department is to determine an accurate diagnosis based on the histological examination of tissues. 

Histological examination is the gold standard of diagnosis especially in the field of oncology. The University Hospital Marburg also offers an innovative diagnostic method of immunohistochemical examination, which has significantly improved the accuracy and reliability of the morphological method. Another focus of the Department under the direction of Professor Dr. Axel Pagenstecher is placed on molecular biological examinations, which are also used in neuropathological diagnostics. Depending on the disease and the specific case, the Department provides examinations of genetic material (DNA) sampled from the tumor tissues, transcribed RNA or proteins. Some of the examinations offered by the Department can also be used in the diagnosis of other oncological diseases, which are not neuropathological, such as skin or colon cancer.
