Essential Biochemistry takes a selective approach to coverage, comprised of biology, premed, and allied health and presents a broad, but not overwhelming base of biochemical coverage that focuses on the chemistry behind the biology. Furthermore it relates the chemical concepts that scaffold the “biology” of biochemistry, providing practical knowledge as well as many problem-solving opportunities to hone skills. Essential Biochemistry is a “guided” tour of biochemistry that is selective in coverage and places information in its broader biological context for understanding. Chapters are intentionally short to alleviate information overload. Chapter opening sections, entitled This Chapter in Context, helps orient the reader to the main topics of the chapter and show how topics relate to previously learned material. Key Concepts at the beginning of each section help identify the most important takeaways in the section and provide an organizational outline for learning. Concept Review questions at the end of each section follows up on those key concepts by testing mastery.

This core textbook helps medical students bridge the gap between biochemistry, physiology, and clinical care. The strength of Mark's Basic Medical Biochemistry is that it starts with the patient—the metabolic and nutritional needs of the human body (easy for students to understand)—as opposed to explanations of complex chemical theory. Mark's Basic empahsizes clinical correlations throughout the text and links biochemical concepts to physiology and pathophysiology, using patient vignettes as the context. These specific and memorable mock patient cases are followed throughout the chapter to pose questions, illustrate core concepts, and help students remember and apply biochemical priniciples within the context of clinical practice.

Essential Biochemistry for Medicine

Author: Mitchell Fry

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

ISBN: 1119956463

Category: Science

Page: 326

View: 1232

This text addresses the growing need for a new kind of textbook for medical and biomedical undergraduates that presents a fully integrated approach to biochemistry and medicine, rather than covering biochemistry on a topic by topic basis with a smattering of 'medical cases' to demonstrate relevance. The majority of pre-clinical medical students do not need a detailed biochemistry text book, but rather "biochemistry as a basis" or as an "add-on". The major challenge for them is to integrate biochemical knowledge, to clinical application in the understanding of the etiology of diseases, their diagnosis and treatment. Essential Biochemistry for Medicine is not intended to be an exhaustive, comprehensive reference; rather a concise, accessible guide that will help first year students, from a wide spectrum of backgrounds, gain a good basic understanding of the biochemistry behind common medical disorders. It integrates biochemistry with clinical applications and the understanding of the etiology of diseases, their diagnosis and treatment. Each chapter includes a concise and simple introduction to the relevant biochemistry and terminology to reinforce what biomedical students have covered, orientate them and encourage them to consider the medical context; whilst at the same time outlining the biochemistry in a simple, "must know" format, for medical students before directing them to the all important clinical considerations. Key Features: A fully integrated approach to give students a basic understanding of the biochemistry behind common medical disorders Concise, accessible and well-written with numerous clear illustrations in full colour throughout Uses 'FOCUS' sections to expand on certain areas such as diabetes, HIV and obesity Includes links and quick references for those wanting a broader knowledge of each topic
