A Case Oriented Approach Towards Biochemistry

by Namrata Chhabra, Sahil Chhabra, Sahiba Kukreja, Sarah Chhabra

Biochemistry is the primary language of biomedical science and essential for literacy in the field of medicine. All diseases have a biochemical basis, and this book helps you understand the importance of biochemistry in diagnosing and treating illness. A Case Oriented Approach Towards Biochemistry is truly a clinically-oriented, very thorough and extremely well-illustrated presentation of the essentials of biochemistry. The course contents have been spread out in twenty-nine chapters. Each chapter starts with a list of ‘learning objectives.’ The case descriptions relate to the learning objectives. Each case study has been assigned a ‘theme’ based on the contextual details, and three clinically relevant ‘icons’ for the depiction of theme, clinical note, and clinical pearls. Three new chapters have been added including the details of biochemical and molecular techniques, case-based multiple choice questions, and quick revisions of significant biochemical deviations. Newborn screening due to its diagnostic and prognostic significance, and some topics of clinical concerns, such as heavy metal toxicity, tumor markers, mechanisms of enzyme action, and enzymes inhibition have also been included. Some redundant cases have been removed to reduce content load, and some have been updated to include the latest information and pictorial representations. Thirty-seven diagrams, tables, flowcharts, and nine new cases have been added to provide broad and conceptual coverage of the course contents.
