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.
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.
Expert biochemist N.V. Bhagavan’s new work condenses his successful Medical Biochemistry texts along with numerous case studies, to act as an extensive review and reference guide for both students and experts alike. The research-driven content includes four-color illustrations throughout to develop an understanding of the events and processes that are occurring at both the molecular and macrolecular levels of physiologic regulation, clinical effects, and interactions. Using thorough introductions, end of chapter reviews, fact-filled tables, and related multiple-choice questions, Bhagavan provides the reader with the most condensed yet detailed biochemistry overview available. More than a quick survey, this comprehensive text includes USMLE sample exams from Bhagavan himself, a previous coauthor.
* Clinical focus emphasizing relevant physiologic and pathophysiologic biochemical concepts * Interactive multiple-choice questions to prep for USMLE exams * Clinical case studies for understanding basic science, diagnosis, and treatment of human diseases * Instructional overview figures, flowcharts, and tables to enhance 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.
