Clinical Biochemistry by Allan Gaw Book Summary:
2014 BMA Medical Book Awards Highly Commended in Basic and Clinical Sciences category! This fully revised edition of Clinical Biochemistry offers essential reading for today's medical student and all those who require a concise, practical introduction to this subject. Topics are clearly presented in a series of double-page 'learning units', each covering a particular aspect of clinical biochemistry. Four sections provide a core grounding in the subject: Introducing clinical biochemistry gives a basic insight in to the workings of a modern hospital laboratory and the interpretation of test results; Core biochemistry covers the bulk of routine analyses undertaken and their relevance in a clinical setting; Endocrinology covers the thyroid, adrenal, pituitary and gonadal function testing; Specialised investigation provides an overview of less requested yet important analyses. Every 'learning unit' has been thoroughly checked and updated to reflect the latest field developments and clinical best practice and all new material is included on: Myocardial infarction Gastrointestinal disorders Osteoporosis Proteinuria The diagnosis of diabetes Trace metals Screening tests Paediatrics Covers clinical biochemistry from the point of view of the clinician using the diagnostic service Presents topics in easily accessible two-page spreads Includes mini case histories, key point boxes, flowcharts, and summary points Well illustrated with four-color drawings and clinical photographs New appendix added of annotated web resources for students to take further many of the topics covered in the book. To reflect the difficulties people have sometimes in analyzing hyper- and hypo-kalaemia, the existing spread is split into two - one spread on hyperkalaemia and another on hypokalaemia. The spread on hypertension will be revised and updated to reflect the fact that biochemistry is used as much or more in guiding treatment as it is in screening for secondary hypertension. Spreads on Myocardial Infarction, Cancer and Tumour Markers will all substantially revised and updated.

Biochemistry of the Eye by Elaine R. Berman Book Summary:
My first introduction to the eye came more than three decades ago when my close friend and mentor, the late Professor Isaac C. Michaelson, convinced me that studying the biochemistry of ocular tissues would be a rewarding pursuit. I hastened to explain that I knew nothing about the subject, since relatively few basic biochemical studies on ocular tissues had appeared in the world literature. Professor Michaelson assured me, however, that two books on eye biochemistry had already been written. One of them, a beautiful monograph by Arlington Krause ( 1934) of Johns Hopkins Hospital, is we II worth reading even today for its historical perspective. The other, published 22 years later, was written by Antoinette Pirie and Ruth van Heyningen ( 1956), whose pioneering achievements in eye biochemistry at the Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology in Oxford, England are known throughout the eye research community and beyond. To their credit are classical investigations on retinal, corneal, and lens biochemistry, beginning in the 1940s and continuing for many decades thereafter. Their important book written in 1956 on the Biochemistry of the Eye is a volume that stood out as a landmark in this field for many years. In recent years, however, a spectacular amount of new information has been gener ated in ocular biochemistry. Moreover, there is increasing specialization among investiga tors in either a specific field of biochemistry or a particular ocular tissue.
