Popular for its highly visual, clinical approach, Medical Genetics delivers an accessible yet thorough understanding of this active and fast-changing field. Key updates in this new edition cover the latest developments which are integrated with clinical practice to emphasize the central principles and how they apply to practice. Photographs, illustrations, and tables, along with boxes containing patient/family vignettes demonstrate clinical relevance and enhance visual impact of the material for easier and more effective learning and retention.
This book organizes information in a framework appropriate for medical students. It presents important events and concepts in the context of their biological function rather than as chemical entities. Useful two-color illustrations focus on mechanisms rather than chemical structures. The primary focus of the book is to foster an understanding of the events and processes that are occurring at both the molecular and macro levels of physiologic regulation, clinical effects, and interactions. High-quality, two-color illustrations help explain mechanisms, reactions and processes. Helpful tables focus on important facts for quick access. Summaries at the end of chapters reinforce key concepts. USMLE-style questions at the end of each chapter give students the opportunity to test their knowledge. Case studies sharpen the book's clinical focus. Boldface key terms provide a quick recognition and review source.
This book provides a broadly based intoduction to those aspects of biochemistry relevant to exercise science. For students of biochemistry, physiology and sport science, this book will help to develop a solid undersanding of the fundamentals of biochemistry. Throughout, the focus is on physiological chemistry, dealing with those biochemical processes that determine the metabolic response to exercise, and the way in which these responses are influenced by training. The authors have taken account of the rapid advances being made in the field of physiological chemistry, and by providing a broad understanding of the fundamental concepts, the reader should be able to integrate these future developments with their existing knowledge of the area.
The Thirtieth Edition of Harper’s Illustrated Biochemistry combines outstanding full-colorillustrations with authoritative integrated coverage of biochemical disease and clinical information. Using brevity 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. All fifty-eight chapters emphasize the medical relevance of biochemistry Full-color presentation includes more than 600 illustrations Each chapter includes a section on BiomedicalImportance and a summary of the topics covered Review questions follow each of the eleven sections Case studies in every chapter emphasize the clinical relevance to biochemistry NEW coverage of toxic naturally-occurring amino acids; extraterrestrial biomolecules; computer-aided drug design; the role of complement cascade in bacterial and viral infection; secreted mediators of cell-cell signaling between leukocytes; the role of mast cells, basophils, andeosinophils; and the hazard of antioxidants that down-regulate radical signaling for apoptosis and increase risk of cancer Applauded by medical students for its current and engaging style, Harper's Illustrated Biochemistry is an essential for USMLE review and the single best reference for learning the clinical relevance of any biochemistry topic
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-color 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.
"Biochemical Monitoring of Sport Training" expands the knowledge base in the field and paints a full and detailed picture of why and how biochemical monitoring is done. Those seeking scientific information to select and apply the best biochemical methods to monitor sport training need look no further-itĺs all here. There are other books available on the subject, but "Biochemical Monitoring of Sport Training" is the only one that provides a combined package of theory and application. It provides in-depth explanations of what happens biochemically while athletes perform and it offers practical suggestions for how to actually biochemically monitor athletes yourself. Part I includes a discussion of why biochemical monitoring of training is necessary and the opportunities it presents for both coaches and athletes. Part II examines methodological limitations of studies in this area. Part III presents how to apply biochemical methods to monitor training in the real world.
