Biochemistry for the medical sciences
This outstanding text, written in a clear, concise and easy-to-read style, provides students with an in-depth explanation of how each metabolic pathway is directly related to physiology, pharmacology, and clinical medicine. Emphasis is given to those medical problems encountered most frequently in daily clinical practice. Basic metabolism is presented as a coherent part of physiology and reference is made to the matabaolic aberrations seen in clinical situations.
