by DM Vasudevan, Subir Kumar Das

The book Practical Textbook of BIOCHEMISTRY for Medical Students is a practical guide wherein it includes the qualitative and quantitative experiments, which the medical students are supposed to do by themselves in practical classes. The book is divided into three parts. Part A deals with qualitative experiments, wherein the authors have discussed about tests for proteins, carbohydrates; analysis of urea, uric acid, vitamin A, vitamin C, milk, bile and urine. Part B deals with quantitative experiments, wherein the discussion on estimation of components (chlorides, ammonia and glucose) in urine; sugar, urea, creatinine, uric acid, haemoglobin, Albumin/globulin ratio, calcium, inorganic phosphate, cholesterol, bilirubin, amylase, alkaline phosphatase and transaminase activity in blood serum is made. The book also gives out some more experiments (Part C), which may not be possible for the students to do by themselves. Few of the experiments will be demonstrated in the practical classes. In the end, a few case reports are also included, which will be useful for the student to prepare for the practical examinations.
