Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
Histopathology can be defined as the microscopic examination of a biopsy or surgical specimen to examine the manifestations of disease. In histopathology, the tissue is taken off from the body by surgery, autopsy or biopsy then it is fixed over the glass slide as a method of stabilization and stained with dyes followed by examination under the microscope. The fixation is done to prevent tissue decay.
