 ABOUT THE TITLE
Clinical Biochemistry, 2nd edn focuses on the areas of body function required for the maintenance of health:

• input — nutrition and digestion

• control — genetic and chemical control of metabolism and water and electrolyte balance

• processing — enzymes in health and disease

• transport and storage — plasma proteins, lipids, and blood gases

• defence — immunogloublins and the proteins of the innate immune system

• output — liver and kidney function

Each chapter provides an introduction to pathophysiology — how biochemical changes arise as a result of disease processes. The book also describes the important methods used in clinical biochemistry laboratories to show how biochemical changes are measured and how they change during disease.
