Focuses on the basic conceptual background of clinically relevant biochemistry for medical students and other health professionals. Line drawings and Biochemistryland Map in envelope inside back cover. Graduate students and medical students have different needs in their learning of biochemistry. Medical students often complain that their biochemistry courses do not focus on clinical relevance. This book, while not a reference book or a dissertation on all aspects of biochemistry, selects the most clinically relevant material that every clinician should know, and presents it in a way that enables the student to quickly see and understand clinical biochemistry as a conceptual whole.

A brief, to-the-point presentation of the most important points in clinical physiology. Enables the reader to see cardio-pulmonary-renal physiology as well as immunology and other areas as a clear conceptual whole.
A brief overview of the basic science and clinical aspects of immunology. The basic science section is a clear presentation of innate and adaptive immunity, immune cells, antibodies and antigens, and other components of the immune system and their interactions. The clinical section clarifies hypersensitivity, autoimmunity, immunodeficiency, common diagnostic tests, vaccination, transplantation, and tumor immunology.
An up-to-date, clear, clinically oriented, and enjoyable review for all students of pathology and pathophysiology. Contains numerous humorous figures, mnemonics, and useful tables along with clinicopathologic correlation, molecular and genetic bases of disease, and high-yield knowledge for medical exams (e.g. USMLE Step 1 and others). An accompanying CD compares pathology with normal histology through many color images, with links to the Internet for additional images and information.

Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, andresearch into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible. The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series has been written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analyticalapproaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science.Clinical Biochemistry provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the biochemical basis of disease processes, and how these diseases can be investigated in the biomedical laboratory. New clinical case studies have been added to the second edition, to further emphasize the link between theoryand practice and help engage students with the subject.

Learn BIOCHEMISTRY without stressing out your brain CELLS Trying to understand the chemical processes of living organisms but having trouble metabolizing the complex concepts? Here's your lifeline! Biochemistry Demystified helps synthesize your understanding of this important topic. You'll start with a review of basic chemical concepts and a look at cell structures and cell division. Next, you'll study carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, nucleotides, and enzymes. Glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, oxidative phosphorylation, and the control of chemical processes round out the coverage. Hundreds of examples and illustrations make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter questions and a final exam help reinforce learning. This fast and easy guide offers: Numerous figures to illustrate key concepts Details on DNA and RNA Coverage of hormones and neurotransmitters A chapter on analytical techniques and bioinformatics A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Biochemistry Demystified is your key to mastering this vital life sciences subject.
Provides a conceptual overview of pathophysiology and mechanisms of disease, designed to ease the transition from the basic sciences to the clinical years. This book will be a phenomenal learning tool for students in the second and third years of medical school and during USMLE Step 1 preparation, but will also be very helpful to nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other health care professonals seeking to learn or review the physiological mechanisms of diseases, their diagnosis, and their management. The accompanied CD, Differential Diagnosis, allows one to select a symptom, sign, or lab finding and see all of the many diseases that could cause it, classified by pathophysiological mechanism. By teaching basic medical science and clinical reasoning hand-in-hand in a simple, light, and highly accessible writing style, this book provides an integrated and easy-to-understand approach to learning the science of medicine.
