International Series of Monographs on Pure and Applied Biology, Volume 18: Biochemical Lesions and Lethal Synthesis focuses on biochemical lesions. The book first discusses biochemical lesions in thiamine deficiency and arsenical substances and biochemical lesions. The text also examines biochemical lesions in mustard gas poisoning. Concerns include sulfone, sulfoxide, vesication, and cross-linking. The book also describes inhibitors of enzymes containing thiol groups and toxicity. Cell division, thiol agents, epidemic dropsy, and sanguinarine are highlighted. The text further focuses on lethal synthesis and carbon-flourine compounds. The synthesis of fluorocitric acid, effects of fluorocitrate, carbon-fluorine compounds, and biochemical lesions induced by fluorocitrate are discussed. The text further describes biochemical lesions in burns and historical points and other biochemical lesions. Muscular contraction, antimetabolites, inborn errors, and study of the biochemistry of burn sites are explained. The text is highly recommended for readers wanting to study biochemical lesions.
