Editorial Reviews

Joanne B. Messick
This fifth edition of Kaneko's text includes among its 30 chapters four new chapters addressing lysosome and storage disease, tumor markers, clinical biochemistry in toxicology, and avian clinical biochemistry. The chapter about trace minerals has been eliminated. In recognition of the changes which have occurred in the field of biochemistry since publication of the fourth edition in 1989, there are marked revisions in existing chapters as well as the addition of the four new chapters. Appendixes have also been expanded to include new analyte reference ranges for an ever-increasing variety of species. Significant additions to the appendix include ranges for free fatty acid, fructosamine, and hemoglobin AIC in small animals. The reference ranges for avian analytes are markedly expanded to include the ostrich, peregrine falcon, pigeon, African grey, and Amazon parrot. Goat and llama CSF analyses are now covered, but the laboratory animals are still largely not covered. This book is invaluable to the veterinarian at all levels including students, residents, and practitioners. The editors do not specifically address to whom or for whom the book was written. Each chapter is authored by someone credible in the subject area they are addressing. Illustrations are pertinent and of appropriate quantity. Significant updating of references is evident in all chapters. The table of contents is adequate. The addition of chapters addressing lysosomal storage diseases, toxicologic and avian biochemistry, and tumor cell markers is timely and valuable information. It may be a daunting task to keep up with advances in molecular biology. Within the next few years, dramatic changes in diagnostictesting for infectious, genetic, and oncologic diseases will necessitate a tremendous expansion or revision of this material.

Presents a comprehensive reference with 30 chapters, 14 appendices, and b&w diagrams. Early chapters address concepts of normality in clinical biochemistry, DNA technology in diagnosis and therapy, carbohydrate metabolism and its diseases, lipids and ketones, and clinical immunology. Later material deals with hepatic, kidney, pancreatic, gastrointestinal, and skeletal muscle function. Other subjects include functions of various glandular systems, reproductive endocrinology, vitamins, lysosomal storage diseases, tumor markers, and cerebrospinal fluid. Final chapters examine clinical biochemistry in toxicology, and rodent, rabbit, and avian clinical biochemistry. This fifth edition represents a new departure with increased editorship and coverage of new and emerging subject areas in the field. Appendices in this fifth edition have been expanded to include new analyte reference ranges for species. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
