Senior investigators internationally have here collaborated to produce an international reference work. Each contributor provides critical and thought provoking concepts and ideas based on the latest developments in their field. The result is a must read and timely reference work for investigators who are interested in how spermatogenesis is currently understood and which are the most promising avenues for future research; an Introduction sets the context for the chapter and points out the relevance of the research for basic research scientists and clinicians.
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.
The complementary eBook version (with the printed book) including additional cases and self-assessment material completes this superb learning package.
Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology, and Genetics: An Integrated Textbook by Zeynep Gromley and Adam Gromley is the first to cover molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry (metabolism), and genetics in one comprehensive yet concise resource. Throughout the book, these topics are linked to other basic medical sciences, such as pharmacology, physiology, pathology, immunology, microbiology, and histology, for a truly integrated approach.
The Thirty-First Edition of Harper’s Illustrated Biochemistry continues to emphasize the link between biochemistry and the understanding of disease states, disease pathology, and the practice of medicine. Featuring a full-colour presentation and numerous medically relevant examples, Harper’s presents a clear, succinct review of the fundamentals of biochemistry that every student must understand in order to succeed in medical school.
