This new edition of Clinical Biochemistry concentrates on the areas of body function required for the maintenance of health. These include input; control; processing; transport and storage; and defence and output. 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. This new edition has been substantially revised to incorporate the latest developments in genomics, proteomics and biosensors. The book also benefits from an improved design and layout to aid student understanding. Clinical Biochemistry, second edition, is essential reading for all students studying clinical biochemistry, especially those on biomedical science courses.

Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, andresearch into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible. The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series has been written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analyticalapproaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science.Clinical Biochemistry provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the biochemical basis of disease processes, and how these diseases can be investigated in the biomedical laboratory. New clinical case studies have been added to the second edition, to further emphasize the link between theoryand practice and help engage students with the subject.

Scientific Foundations of Biochemistry in Clinical Practice, Second Edition describes the pathological aspects of general metabolic disorders. This book is organized into 10 sections encompassing 45 chapters that discuss the nature of disorders involving disturbance in hydrogen ion concentration and blood gases, as well as the disorders of fluid and electrolyte balance. Some of the topics covered in the book are the chemical analysis of urine; neonatal screening for biochemical disorders; clinical biochemistry of alcohol, in intensive and postoperative care; psychiatric disorders of biochemical origin; abnormalities of the plasma proteins; assessment of gastrointestinal function; and calcium metabolism. Other chapters examine the nature, conditions, and diagnosis of bone disorders. A chapter emphasizes the functions of hypothalamus and pituitary. Another chapter looks into the biochemistry and toxicology of metals. The final chapters are devoted to the classification of connective tissue diseases and to the examination of clinical biochemistry of the central nervous system. The book can provide useful information to doctors, biochemists, students, and researchers.

Clinical Biochemistry of Domestic Animals, Second Edition, Volume I, is a major revision of the first edition prompted by the marked expansion of knowledge in the clinical biochemistry of animals. In keeping with this expansion of knowledge, this edition is comprised of two volumes. Chapters on the pancreas, thyroid, and pituitary-adrenal systems have been separated and entirely rewritten. Completely new chapters on muscle metabolism, iron metabolism, blood clotting, and gastrointestinal function have been added. All the chapters of the first edition have been revised with pertinent new information, and many have been completely rewritten. This volume contains 10 chapters and opens with a discussion of carbohydrate metabolism and associated disorders. Separate chapters follow on lipid metabolism, plasma proteins, and porphyrins. Subsequent chapters deal with liver, pancreatic, and thyroid functions; the role of the pituitary and adrenal glands in health and disease; the function of calcium, inorganic phosphorus, and magnesium metabolism in health and disease; and iron metabolism.

10+ Years of Updates Since First Edition Newcomers to the animal clinical chemistry and toxicology fields quickly find that the same rules of human medicine do not always apply. Following in the footsteps of its standard-setting first edition, Animal Clinical Chemistry: A Practical Handbook for Toxicologists and Biomedical Researchers, Second Edition collates information widely dispersed in journals and book chapters, focusing on the most relevant literature to experimental toxicology and its distinction from human medicine. Expands Discussion of Troponins, Lipids, and Electrolytes In addition to tests recommended by regulatory authorities, this globally relevant resource includes information about clinical chemistry tests as well as hepato-, nephro-, cardio-, and endocrine toxicity. It also covers pre-analytical and analytical variables, which play a far more important role with interpreting data from animal studies as compared to human studies when variables can be well controlled with less physiological effect. Furthermore, this edition takes its discussion of biomarkers to the next level, exploring newer and related investigations, such as metabolomics/NMR and multiplex technology. Under the editorial guidance of G.O. Evans, a recognized field authority, the book presents background information on the selection and application of biochemical tests in preclinical safety assessment studies. It also assesses specific organ toxicity, such as in the liver, kidney, and thyroid, along with regulatory requirements and statistical approaches. Careful to avoid delving into overly complex detail, this text is a comprehensive, practical reference ideal for new entrants to the field. However, its broad scope and depth also make it suitable for more seasoned scientists and toxicologists.
