Complete, up-to-date coverage of the broad area of nucleic acid chemistry and biology
Assembling contributions from a collection of authors with expertise in all areas of nucleic acids, medicinal chemistry, and therapeutic applications, Medicinal Chemistry of Nucleic Acids presents a thorough overview of nucleic acid chemistry—a rapidly evolving and highly challenging discipline directly responsible for the development of antiviral and antitumor drugs. This reliable resource delves into a multitude of subject areas involving the study of nucleic acids—such as the new advances in genome sequencing, and the processes for creating RNA interference (RNAi) based drugs—to assist pharmaceutical researchers in removing roadblocks that hinder their ability to predict drug efficacy. Offering the latest cutting-edge science in this growing field, Medicinal Chemistry of Nucleic Acids includes:
In-depth coverage of the development and application of modified nucleosides and nucleotides in medicinal chemistry
A close look at a large range of current topics on nucleic acid chemistry and biology
Essential information on the use of nucleic acid drugs to treat diseases like cancer
A thorough exploration of siRNA for RNAi and the regulation of microRNA, non-coding RNA (ncRNA), a newly developing and exciting research area
Thorough in its approach and promising in its message, Medicinal Chemistry of Nucleic Acids probes the new domains of pharmaceutical research—and exposes readers to a wealth of new drug discovery opportunities emerging in the dynamic field of nucleic acid chemistry.
This book is designed to give a quick glance through common examination topics. Concepts have been correlated with clinical aspects wherever possible. There are flow charts and tables to help in quick learning. Acronyms (mnemonics) are designed carefully for easy recollection. An effort has been made to summarize key concepts at the end of each topic to have quick review during viva vice. It has been written in a simple language and will be useful for students of various undergraduates courses.

The seventh edition of this book is a comprehensive guide to biochemistry for medical students. Divided into six sections, the book examines in depth topics relating to chemical basics of life, metabolism, clinical and applied biochemistry, nutrition, molecular biology and hormones. New chapters have been added to this edition and each chapter includes clinical case studies to help students understand clinical relevance. A 274-page free booklet of revision exercises (9789350906378), providing essay questions, short notes, viva voce and multiple choice questions is included to help students in their exam preparation. Free online access to additional clinical cases, key concepts and an image bank is also provided. Key points *Fully updated, new edition providing students with comprehensive guide to biochemistry *Includes a free booklet of revision exercises and free online access *Highly illustrated with nearly 1500 figures, images, tables and illustrations *Previous edition published in 2010
The book is primarily intended to meet the requirements of CMLT/DMLT and undergraduate courses. It covers all the required topics in a descriptive and sygnoptic style. Various concepts have been explained using simple language and short sentences for easy comprehension. It also discusses the latest techniques in biochemistry like glucometer, HbA/C test and autoanalysers. The text is divided into 2 parts-first part deals with elementary knowledge of organic, inorganic physical and analytical chemistry. The second part deals with aim and scope of biochemistry, structure of cell, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids enzymes, metabolism, hormones, liver/renal function text (cardiac function test), electrolytes, body fluids, automation, etc.

With Lippincott Illustrated Reviews, Seeing is Understanding.
Designed to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today, The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series combines essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice, demonstrating how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled with the analytical approaches that lead to diagnosis. Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a biomedical scientist may be exposed, from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science.
A new volume in this exciting series, Clinical Biochemistry places the theoretical foundations of clinical biochemistry in a practical environment, demonstrating how biomedical scientists apply fundamental biochemical principles to key laboratory investigations. The text provides a comprehensive overview of the discipline–as applied to a wide range of diseases and disorders–and also covers laboratory automation and quality control, forging a clear link between science and practice.
Clinical Biochemistry is enhanced by numerous case studies, examples, and full color throughout. A Companion Website offers resources for students and instructors, including a fully interactive digital microscope–with a range of cell and tissue images for examination–self-assessment activities, and video podcasts that include interviews with practicing biomedical scientists and “in the lab” footage.
Features: Used Book in Good Condition By (author): Mitchell Fry
This text addresses the growing need for a new kind of textbook for medical and biomedical undergraduates that presents a fully integrated approach to biochemistry and medicine, rather than covering biochemistry on a topic by topic basis with a smattering of ‘medical cases’ to demonstrate relevance. The majority of pre-clinical medical students do not need a detailed biochemistry text 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 of diseases, their diagnosis and treatment.
Essential Biochemistry for Medicine is not intended to be an exhaustive, comprehensive reference; rather a concise, accessible guide that will help first year students, from a wide spectrum of backgrounds, gain a good basic understanding of the biochemistry behind common medical disorders. It integrates biochemistry with clinical applications and the understanding of the etiology of diseases, their diagnosis and treatment. Each chapter includes a concise and simple introduction to the relevant biochemistry and terminology to reinforce what biomedical students have covered, orientate them and encourage them to consider the medical context; whilst at the same time outlining the biochemistry in a simple, “must know” format, for medical students before directing them to the all important clinical considerations.
