Overview

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

The book contains both black-and-white and two-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anatoly Bezkorovainy, JD, PhD (Rush Medical College of Rush University)
Description: This is a medical biochemistry text.
Purpose: It is written for the medical and possibly other health sciences students. This purpose has been achieved; the book emphasizes physiological and therapeutic/diagnostic aspects of the material, and I have observed few if any mechanisms from an organic chemist's point of view.
Audience: The audience is students of medicine, veterinary science, podiatry, etc., and even undergraduates preparing themselves for medical school. This book is quite appropriate for them; it is written at the appropriate level and contains material of significance for this type of an audience. I noted few significant omissions. The authors have done a good job.
Features: There is a glossary of terms, which is helpful. The index and table of contents are adequate. There are numerous illustrations using various shades of blue and gray. These are useful and adequate. The soft cover has a nice/attractive design on it. The medical student should be able to afford this book.
Assessment: There are some questions at the end of each chapter, most of them multiple choice. If the purpose of these questions is to review the material or to test the student's knowledge, the number of such questions is woefully inadequate. Otherwise, the book is fun to read and I would recommend it as a text for medical biochemistry. On the other hand, there are now so many such books on the market that it is hard to see how this one is superior to most of them (e.g., Roskoski' Biochemistry (WB Saunders, 1996) or Champe/Harvey's Lippincott's Illustrated Reviews: Biochemistry, 2nd edition (JB Lippincott 1994).

    Excellent, interesting medical biochemistry book.

    This book is totally excellent. Its written in a very clear, simple, and comprehensive way. Pleasure to read. Nothing to do with molecules or organic chemistry. Written from a pure medical perspective.
