Book Description

March 30, 2009 0470122374 978-0470122372 1
Metabolism includes various pathways of chemical reactions; understanding these pathways leads to an improved knowledge of the causes, preventions, and cures for human diseases. Medical Biochemistry: Human Metabolism in Health and Disease provides a concise yet thorough explanation of human metabolism and its role in health and diseases. Focusing on the physiological context of human metabolism without extensive consideration of the mechanistic principles of underlying enzymology, the books serves as both a primary text and resource for students and professional in medical, dental, and allied health programs.

Review

"All the necessary topics are accurately covered, with ample formulae and metabolic pathways, and reasonable clinical references." (ACP News, June 2009)

From the Back Cover

Helps Readers Understand The Link Between Metabolic Pathways And Human Health And Disease

Medical Biochemistry enables readers to master the essentials of human metabolism by explaining how metabolic pathways and reactions are connected to human health and disease. Rather than cover all the reactions that human cells and tissues are capable of executing, this text better enables readers to learn core concepts by emphasizing select examples that illustrate the physiologic and pathophysiologic significance of the major metabolic pathways. Designed for medical, dental, and allied health students and professionals, the text emphasizes clinically relevant information, helping readers understand the interrelationships between metabolic pathways and the links between metabolism and the causes, preventions, and cures for human diseases.

A separate chapter is dedicated to each of the key metabolic pathways that constitute human metabolism. Each chapter features a six-part structure that facilitates a clear understanding of the metabolic processes:

  • Major function(s) of the pathway

  • Tissues in which the pathway is active

  • Physiological conditions under which the pathway is most active

  • Reactions that comprise the pathway

  • Regulation of the pathway

  • Examples of human diseases related to the pathway

Throughout the text, simple figures help readers understand how metabolic pathways and reactions work.

This text's concise, easy-to-follow approach helps readers understand and appreciate the functions, constituent reactions, and regulatory aspects of the core pathways that constitute human metabolism and are responsible for maintaining homeostasis and well-being in humans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource for Medical Students and others! March 21, 2009
Format:Paperback
This is an excellent resource for covering the medically relevant aspects of biochemistry and metabolism. The information is well-organized and concise, and does a wonderful job of integrating information across the spectrum of metabolism. This text helped to both consolidate and enhance my understanding of Biochemistry, and is the perfect resource for medical and other health-sciences students!

5.0 out of 5 stars Relevant info for med school and boards January 22, 2010
By Leslie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book contains clinically relevant biochemistry for medical students. The chapters on cholesterol are great, and more accurate than other texts. I had trouble with biochemistry--study the pathways over and over again, then read the text, and it will all make sense. Also, the clinical portions of this book are very pragmatic. And the writing is clear and the text concise. Relevant pathology for boards is covered at the ends of chapters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Medical Writing May 4, 2009
Format:Paperback
This book by Miriam Rosenthal and Robert Glew is a rare example of superb writing and excellent pedagogy. Because the writing is so very good, the book is easy to read.

The book relates biochemistry to medicine, and so is more useful and interesting than most biochemistry textbooks. It's a huge improvement over the pretentious and obtuse textbook _Biochemistry_ by Berg et al.

It's also easy to handle--one can pick it up with two fingers.
