Clinical Biochemistry By Nessar Ahmed (Reader in Clinical Biochemistry, Reader in Clinical Biochemistry, School of Healthcare Science, Manchester Metropolitan University)

Summary

Clinical Biochemistry covers the core biochemistry that biomedical science students need to know, placing it in the context of human disease. Throughout the text, the theory is continually related to laboratory practice through the use of examples and case studies.

Clinical Biochemistry Summary

Clinical Biochemistry by Nessar Ahmed (Reader in Clinical Biochemistry, Reader in Clinical Biochemistry, School of Healthcare Science, Manchester Metropolitan University)

Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, and research into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible. The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series has been written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analytical approaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science. Clinical Biochemistry provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to the biochemical basis of disease processes, and how these diseases can be investigated in the biomedical laboratory. New clinical case studies have been added to the second edition, to further emphasize the link between theory and practice and help engage students with the subject.
