This core textbook helps medical students bridge the gap between biochemistry, physiology, and clinical care. The strength of Mark's Basic Medical Biochemistry is that it starts with the patient—the metabolic and nutritional needs of the human body (easy for students to understand)—as opposed to explanations of complex chemical theory. Mark's Basic empahsizes clinical correlations throughout the text and links biochemical concepts to physiology and pathophysiology, using patient vignettes as the context. These specific and memorable mock patient cases are followed throughout the chapter to pose questions, illustrate core concepts, and help students remember and apply biochemical priniciples within the context of clinical practice.

This book is an excellent amalgamation of teaching-learning. It attempts at exposing the students to the ideal answers to questions often asked. The questions not only test the knowledge but also incorporate the clinical/ applied aspects of Biochemistry which are so important to help the students to think out of the box. Major principles are spelt out and questioned. Further, this book also incorporates the vertical integration of Biochemistry curriculum, which is needed to be implemented to help the practising doctor to correlate all aspects of Biochemistry. The fact that a lot of laboratory know how is essential for the budding doctor has been tackled by introducing a chapter on Clinical Biochemistry laboratory. Besides, what to expect as far as the biochemistry analytes are concerned when seeing the patients is also broached. Thus, this book is an excellent amalgamation of the old and new. Principles in Biochemistry are explained and how they are used for patient care is elaborated. We are sure the book will stand in good stead throughout the years of the undergraduate career of the budding doctors.

This book covers in detail the mechanisms for how energy is managed in the human body. The basic principles that elucidate the reactivity and physical interactions of matter are addressed and quantified with simple approaches. Three-dimensional representations of molecules are presented throughout the book so molecules can be viewed as unique entities in their shape and function. The book is focused on the molecular mechanisms of cellular processes in the context of human physiological situations such as fasting, feeding and physical exercise, in which metabolic regulation is highlighted. Furthermore the book uses key historical experiments that opened up new concepts in Biochemistry to further illustrate how the human body functions at molecular level, helping students to appreciate how scientific knowledge emerges. This book also: · Elucidates the foundations of the molecular events of life “p>· Uses key historical experiments that opened up new concepts in Biochemistry to further illustrate how the human body functions at molecular level, helping students to appreciate how scientific knowledge emerges · Provides realistic representations of molecules throughout the book Advance Praise for Integrative Human Biochemistry “This textbook provides a modern and integrative perspective of human biochemistry and will be a faithful companion to health science students following curricula in which this discipline is addressed.

This textbook is specifically designed for upper-division undergraduate or graduate students in life science or pre-medical majors including dentistry or pharmacology, who are required to take a biochemistry or medical biochemistry course, but who are not necessarily biochemistry majors. The book adopts a unique approach to the topic compared with other biochemistry textbooks currently available, in that each biochemical subject is introduced by a human disease relating the biochemical principles to be developed in that chapter. The goal is to make biochemistry more meaningful to the student who is not normally shown the connection between biochemistry and medicine. * Includes an abundance of figures * Emphasizes human biochemistry * Introduces each chapter with a relevant disease or clinical relationship

Clinical Studies in Medical Biochemistry

View: 7910

This text uses a case-study approach to present the fundamentals of biochemistry and molecular biology in the context of human disease to students who will be involved in patient care. The 32 cases, carefully selected to cover common diseases and important principles, are supplemented by clinical descriptions of each disease and a comprehensive discussion of the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms and associated enzymatic and chemical alterations in tissues and body fluids. The Second Edition differs from its predecessor in several respects. It features seven new chapters on diseases not covered before. The Biochemical Perspectives section of each chapter has been expanded to include pertinent information on the molecular biology of each disease. More chapters are written by authors from outside the U.S., and Dr. Glew has a new co-editor. The diseases covered include those caused by viruses (hepatitis B, HIV), microorganisms (diphtheria), environmental toxins (e.g. lead), cardiovascular abnormalities (myocardial infarction), genetic mutations (hereditary spherocytosis, Gaucher disease, sickle-cell anemia, chronic granulomatous disease), endocrine system disorders (hypertension, Cushing's syndrome), and nutritional deficiencies (rickets). Chapters follow a consistent format. A detailed case report describes the history, pertinent clinical laboratory data, histological findings, and physical characteristics. It is followed by a diagnosis section, which covers biochemical structures and the formulae of enzyme-catalyzed reactions, and describes the definitive method for confirming diagnosis. A discussion of molecular perspectives provides a detailed account of the normal processes and reactions pertaining to the case, along with the mechanism of the disease. The therapy is summarized and the likely prognosis is outlined. Each chapter concludes with discussion questions and a brief bibliography listing informative reviews and key publications. This text is intended for medical schools where biochemistry is taught though the study of actual clinical cases, and will be useful to medical students, graduate students in the biomedical sciences, and practicing physians taking refresher courses.
