Textbook of Biochemistry for Medical Students
This second edition of this book is extensively revised. It now covers the complete syllabus prescribed by the Medical Council of India for the MBBS course. Although it is designed as a basic textbook for the undergraduate student, it has resource material for postgraduates and advanced learners in biochemistry and medicine. NEW TO THE SECOND EDITION Six new chapters have been added in Section X, Contemporary topics. The text is organized into ten sections comprising 45 chapters which are arranged in a seamless progression. However, to enable teachers to present topics in the order they desire, there is extensive cross referencing between the chapters.

Each chapter begins with at a glance which gives a birds eye view of the content, thus facilitating better comprehension of the whole. At the end of each chapter, MCQs, Clinical case studies, Problem based exercises and Riddles have been given. These will be of immense help to the students preparing for various competitive examinations in India and abroad that include USMLE, PLAB, and All India MD/MS entrance examinations. KEY FEATURESThe underlying biochemical mechanisms and the molecular dynamics of body function are discussed extensively.Detailed flow charts enable easy understanding, while the diagrams, tables, clinical correlates, boxes, examples and the exercises reinforce the concepts expounded in the main text.The large number of reproducible, full length colour illustrations facilitate visual exploration of the complex metabolic pathways.The tables are organized such that the essence of the chapter is covered in a nutshell, enabling a quick revision before the examination.The succinct chapter summaries help develop a concise review and aid foundational learning.A new feature Dynamics of the pathway attempts to explore the metabolic pathways from different perspectives.The extensive citation of links between biochemistry and other medical subjects, throughout the text, differentiates this book into that of an integrated textbook of biochemistry.An extensive list of reference values of biochemical parameters along with clinical interpretation is a unique feature of this book. It is intended to serve as a ready reference not only for the student but also for the practising physician and laboratories. 2. Write-up for the website (This should be short and precise).
