Textbook of endocrine physiology
James E. Griffin, Sergio R. Ojeda
Oxford University Press, 1988 - Medical - 351 pages
Written primarily for medical and dental students, this text has a clear focus on the major functions of hormones, a solid grounding in biochemistry and molecular biology, and ample clinical correlations. With contributors from several disciplines, it provides authoritative treatment of each facet of endocrine physiology. Since the authors are from a single institution and have all participated in the course from which the text was developed, it has a unity that is rare in multicontributor volumes. Clearly written, generously illustrated, well balanced and up-to-date, this is an ideal text for students of the health professions.
