Clinical Biochemistry, second edition, is essential reading for all students studying clinical biochemistry, especially those on biomedical science courses.

The book concentrates on the areas of body function required for the maintenance of health. These include:
  • input
  • control
  • processing
  • transport and storage
  • defence and output
Each chapter provides an introduction to pathophysiology; how biochemical changes arise as a result of disease processes. The book also describes the important methods used in clinical biochemistry laboratories to show how biochemical changes are measured and how they change during disease.

This edition has been substantially revised to incorporate the latest developments in genomics, proteomics and biosensors. The book also benefits from an improved design and layout to aid student understanding.
