This text uses a case-study approach to present the fundamentals of biochemistry and molecular biology in the context of human disease to students who will be involved in patient care. The 32 cases, carefully selected to cover common diseases and important principles, are supplemented by clinical descriptions of each disease and a comprehensive discussion of the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms and associated enzymatic and chemical alterations in tissues and body fluids. The Second Edition differs from its predecessor in several respects. It features seven new chapters on diseases not covered before. The Biochemical Perspectives section of each chapter has been expanded to include pertinent information on the molecular biology of each disease. More chapters are written by authors from outside the U.S., and Dr. Glew has a new co-editor. The diseases covered include those caused by viruses (hepatitis B, HIV), microorganisms (diphtheria), environmental toxins (e.g. lead), cardiovascular abnormalities (myocardial infarction), genetic mutations (hereditary spherocytosis, Gaucher disease, sickle-cell anemia, chronic granulomatous disease), endocrine system disorders (hypertension, Cushing's syndrome), and nutritional deficiencies (rickets). Chapters follow a consistent format. A detailed case report describes the history, pertinent clinical laboratory data, histological findings, and physical characteristics. It is followed by a diagnosis section, which covers biochemical structures and the formulae of enzyme-catalyzed reactions, and describes the definitive method for confirming diagnosis. A discussion of molecular perspectives provides a detailed account of the normal processes and reactions pertaining to the case, along with the mechanism of the disease. The therapy is summarized and the likely prognosis is outlined. Each chapter concludes with discussion questions and a brief bibliography listing informative reviews and key publications. This text is intended for medical schools where biochemistry is taught though the study of actual clinical cases, and will be useful to medical students, graduate students in the biomedical sciences, and practicing physians taking refresher courses.

The third edition of the book is thoroughly updated and presented in a new two-colour format. The book presents a detailed and authoritative exposition of the basic principles and applications of biochemistry. It focuses primarily on clarity of the fundamental concepts and explains them according to the need of undergraduate medical students. The organization of content in this book is such that it provides the reader with a logical sequence of events that aids learning. More emphasis in this edition is to systemize presentation and make reading soothing and pleasurable by deleting redundant details, adding new text and figures, improvement of earlier figures, supplementing text with easy to comprehend flowcharts, without changing basic framework of the book. Each chapter ends with clinical cases and the related questions, which evokes yet another method of active learning rather than didactic methods of imparting knowledge. Key points have been highlighted and boxed at the end of each topic for quick revision of the core concepts. This book comes with a free companion website which contains self-assessment exercises, detailed case discussions related to the clinical cases given inside the book, glossary and various other features for enhanced learning.
