Brought to you in a thorough yet accessible manner, the new edition of Medical Biochemistry gives access to all of the latest information on basic and clinically focused genetic and molecular biology. Featuring a team of contributors that includes investigators involved in cutting-edge research as well as experienced clinicians, this updated medical textbook offers a unique combination of both research and practice that's ideal for today's problem-based integrated courses. Relate biochemistry to everyday practice with the help of Clinical Boxes integrated into the text, and access in-depth coverage of important topics - including recent research in biochemistry - through Advanced Concept Boxes. Test your knowledge and improve retention with Active Learning Boxes at the conclusion of each chapter, and quickly review the most common lab tests performed with convenient Clinical Test Boxes. Effectively study the most updated information in biochemistry with the help of a dynamic, full-color design. Better understand the relationship between science and clinical practice with material organized by organ rather than system. Quickly review descriptions of difficult concepts with an online glossary available at Student Consult. Additional online components include clinical images, clinical boxes, case studies, online note-taking capabilities, and 150 multiple-choice and USMLE-style questions. Gain a thorough understanding of biomarkers and their uses with brand-new information on the subject.
With this ninth edition, the Textbook of Biochemistry for Medical Students is entering in the 24th year of existence, the contents is now suitable for undergraduate students. Rapid advances in the area of molecular biology have been incorporated. Specific Learning Objectives provided at the beginning of each chapter to specify what student should learn from that chapter. NEW: Color coding used to represent enzyme names instead of numbers for better readability. NEW: Major pathways have been collated at a single place to make it more reader friendly. NEW: Important classifications, facts, tables, cyclic reactions, etc. have been depicted as Key Concepts at the end of chapters for quick revision. Relevant and significant mechanisms and theories are explained with the help of schematic diagrams and graphs. Chapters on clinical chemistry have been extensively updated and clinically relevant points are added. A major attraction of this edition is the incorporation of Clinical Case Studies in almost all the chapters to help students identify the clinical relevance of biochemistry. For integrated learning and early clinical exposure (which is a major highlight of the new curriculum), clinical chemistry and applied aspects are incorporated in Boxes, which are "nice to know" for students. Chapter summary is provided at the end of each chapter for quick recapitulation For last minute revision, Essay Questions, Short Answer Questions, Multiple Choice Questions and Viva Voce Questions are given at the end of each chapter which are compiled from the question papers of various universities from the last decade and have been rephrased as per the new curriculum. NEW: New Figures have been added for better reproducibility. Appendices provide useful information on abbreviations, normal reference values, conversion chart, recommended daily allowance of essential nutrients, and composition of nutrients in selected common food materials. 1200 figures, 200 tables and 200 boxes altogether making the book more student-friendly.
