    This comprehensively revised edition of Clinical Biochemistry offers essential reading for today’s students of medicine and other health science disciplines - indeed, anyone who requires a concise, practical introduction to the subject. Topics are clearly presented in a series of double-page ‘learning units’, each covering a particular aspect of clinical biochemistry. Four sections provide a core grounding in the subject:

    • Introducing clinical biochemistry gives an insight into how modern hospital laboratories work, and includes an entirely new series of learning units on the interpretation of test results
    • Core biochemistry covers the bulk of routine analyses, and their relevance to the clinical setting
    • Endocrinology provides an overview of endocrine investigations as well as a practical approach to thyroid, adrenal, pituitary and gonadal function testing
    • Specialised investigations embraces an assortment of other topics that students may encounter

    This edition represents the most radical revision of the book to date. Every learning unit has been examined and updated to reflect current developments and clinical best practice. Entirely new material includes a series of learning units on interpretation and analytical aspects of clinical biochemistry. Coverage of fluid biochemistry is now more comprehensive. New "Want to know more?" links throughout the book point readers to relevant further information.

    Clinical Chemistry considers what happens to the body’s chemistry when affected by disease. It provides introductory coverage of the scientific basis for biochemistry tests routinely used in medicine - including tests for the assessment of organ function, diagnosis and monitoring disease activity and therapy efficacy. Each topic area begins with a concise description of the underlying physiological and biochemical principles and then applies them to patient investigation and management. The regular use of case histories helps further emphasise clinical relevance and chapter key points, as well as provide a useful starting point for examination revision.

    The clear and engaging writing style appreciated by generations of readers has been retained in this latest (ninth) edition, while the content has been thoroughly updated throughout. The approach and scope of this trusted text makes it ideal for integrated medical curricula, for medical training and for students and practitioners of clinical and biomedical science.

    Updated to incorporate the latest changes in practice - including new tests and the most recent evidence-based guidance

    ‘Light bulb’ sections give practical advice and clarify difficult concepts or potential pitfalls

    New ‘Red flag’ boxes highlight the results which should cause immediate concern to clinicians

    Updated references to core guidelines reflect latest best practice

    Also BONUS materials - interactive clinical cases and MCQs - to reinforce interpretive skills, check understanding and aid exam preparation

    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.
