Clinical Biochemistry, 2nd edn focuses on the areas of body function required for the maintenance of health: • input — nutrition and digestion • control — genetic and chemical control of metabolism and water and electrolyte balance • processing — enzymes in health and disease • transport and storage — plasma proteins, lipids, and blood gases • defence — immunogloublins and the proteins of the innate immune system • output — liver and kidney function Each chapter provides an introduction to pathophysiology — how biochemical changes arise as a result of disease processes. The book also describes the important methods used in clinical biochemistry laboratories to show how biochemical changes are measured and how they change during disease. The new edition has been substantially revised to incorporate the latest developments in genomics, proteomics, and biosensors. This book is essential reading for all students studying clinical biochemistry, especially those on biomedical science courses. Printed Pages: 272.
