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.
