Product Overview

Richard F. Ludue?a, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio

In his first highly successful book, Learning Biochemistry: 100 Case-Oriented Problems, leading educator Richard F. Ludue?a provided a series of problems requiring students to perform library research as well as to speculate using their own knowledge and problem-solving skills in order to find the answers. The questions were designed to demonstrate the relevance of biochemistry to clinical medicine, to show that many diseases have a biological foundation, and to emphasize that understanding that foundation helps the student to understand the disease.

This sequel, Learning More Biochemistry: 100 New Case-Oriented Problems, contains an entirely new set of problems based on the latest literature, including problems associated with rare diseases, the brain and the nervous system, biochemistry of kidney function, microbial infections, cancer, and aging. Basic topics from the earlier volume have been retained, and new topics have been introduced that illustrate diseases commonly seen by clinicians. Reflecting the increased use of the problem-oriented approach in medical education, this book presents problems that are both challenging and rewarding.

Problems cover the full range of topics, including: Metabolism Vitamins Hormones The blood The immune system The muscles Skin and hair Eyes and ears Bones and cartilage

Instructors and students of biochemistry in medical school and graduate school will find Learning More Biochemistry: 100 New Case-Oriented Problems a vital teaching and learning tool, a practical resource for future study, and a useful companion to medical course syllabi and textbooks.
