The autopsy has provided, and still provides, the stimulus for many attempts to reproduce disease in experimental animal models. This approach has become increasingly difficult, however, in the case of human disease, principally shock. The study of some pathological states in animal models requires testing in several species and final confirmation in man before this knowledge can be applied to living patients. In our studies the application of cell biology techniques at autopsy has permitted the generation of new hypotheses which are more amenable to further exploration in experimental models and can be more precisely related to human disease.
