This text addresses the growing need for a new kind of textbook formedical and biomedical undergraduates that presents a fullyintegrated approach to biochemistry and medicine, rather thancovering biochemistry on a topic by topic basis with a smatteringof ?medical cases? to demonstrate relevance. The majority ofpre–clinical medical students do not need a detailed biochemistrytext 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 ofdiseases, their diagnosis and treatment.
Essential Biochemistry for Medicine is notintended to be an exhaustive, comprehensive reference rather aconcise, accessible guide that will help first year students, froma wide spectrum of backgrounds, gain a good basic understanding ofthe biochemistry behind common medical disorders. It integratesbiochemistry with clinical applications and the understanding ofthe etiology of diseases, their diagnosis and treatment. Eachchapter includes a concise and simple introduction to the relevantbiochemistry and terminology to reinforce what biomedical studentshave covered, orientate them and encourage them to consider themedical context whilst at the same time outlining the biochemistryin a simple, "must know" format, for medical students beforedirecting them to the all important clinical considerations.
