All the chapters emphasize the clinical relevance of Biochemistry
With this Ninth edition, the Textbook of Biochemistry for Medical Students is entering in the 24th year of existence. It contains the essentials of basic biochemistry necessary for the undergraduate students. The chapters on clinical chemistry have been extensively updated and clinically relevant points were added. A major attraction of this edition is the approach to suit the revised curriculum; addition of clinically relevant points and clinical case studies in almost all chapters. This feature will help the students to identify the clinical relevance of biochemistry. Rapid progress has been made in the area of molecular biology during the past few years, and these advances have also been reflected in this book. Essay questions, short answer questions, multiple choice questions and viva voce type questions are given at the end of each chapter. These questions will be ideal for students for last-minute preparation for examinations. There are about 1,200 figures, 200 tables and 200 boxes, altogether making the book more student-friendly.
