Description

The Liver in Biology and Disease was conceived as a sequel in the series Principles of Medical Biology, whose general aim continues to be the integration of human biology and molecular cell biology into modern molecular medicine. It is a volume molded by the Information Revolution which few will deny has forced the teaching faculties in our medical schools to curtail and prune the teaching load and focus on fundamentals and principles. With this intention in mind, a volume of this nature takes into account the close dependence of progress in the medical sciences on bioinformatics (gene and protein analysis) or more precisely, computational biology and of course, the Internet. In general, it follows the pattern of its predecessors.

Key Features

Chapters are illustrated with numerous figures and references are current Clear, concise and accurate text about a large number of liver diseases *Describes the liver's histology, biochemistry, and pathology in molecular terms

Readership

Medical students, predoctoral or postdoctoral graduates, hepatologists, and hepatopathologists, internists, critical care physicians, and graduates in the allied health sciences and nursing.
