Overview


Handbook of Clinical Biochemistry provides an understanding of the pathophysiological basis of diseases and gives guidelines about the use of the clinical biochemistry laboratories. It aims to bring together the physiology, biochemistry and relevant pathology for the proper use of the laboratory and to enable interpretation of results. Basic concepts are explained in simple terms and the emphasis is on comprehending the principles behind the normal and abnormal function of tissues and organs. This book deals with the clinical biochemistry of commonly measured analytes. It gives hard numerical data not only for the distribution and balance of analytes, but also for differential diagnosis and for treatment. For each analyte, it covers distribution, balance, and assessment of status, causes and consequences of abnormal values, investigation, and treatment. The book is aimed at medical students, junior doctors, clinical scientists and medical technologists.
