All fifty-eight chapters emphasize the medical relevance of biochemistry

Full-color presentation includes more than 600 illustrations Each chapter includes a section on BiomedicalImportance and a summary of the topics covered Review questions follow each of the eleven sections Case studies in every chapter emphasize the clinical relevance to biochemistry NEW coverage of toxic naturally-occurring amino acids; extraterrestrial biomolecules; computer-aided drug design; the role of complement cascade in bacterial and viral infection; secreted mediators of cell-cell signaling between leukocytes; the role of mast cells, basophils, andeosinophils; and the hazard of antioxidants that down-regulate radical signaling for apoptosis and increase risk of cancer

Applauded by medical students for its current and engaging style, Harper's Illustrated Biochemistry is an essential for USMLE review and the single best reference for learning the clinical relevance of any biochemistry topic.

John E. Hall
Nueva edición del best seller en Fisiología que después de una trayectoria de más de 60 años se convierte en el texto de primera elección para los estudiantes tanto de Medicina como de otros grados de Ciencias de la Salud que se enfrentan a la asignatura.Su abordaje, su carácter altamente didáctico y su correlación clínica hacen de él un material único que presenta la fisiología, uno de los pilares básicos para el posterior ejercicio clínico, de una forma clara, concisa y de fácil comprensión. La 13a ed se organiza en las mismas Unidades, aunque ha sufrido una reordenación y reestructuración de capítulos, especialmente en la Unidad V (Los líquidos corporales y los riñones) en la que el contenido de un capítulo se ha desdoblado en dos. Con ello, el número de capítulos pasa de un total de 84 en la ed. anterior a 85 en la nueva edición.Se ha producido una especial actualización en los capítulos referentes a la fisiología del sistema gastrointestinal y la neurofisiología. Así mismo, cabe destacar la inclusión de nuevos ejemplos de correlación clínica y mecanismos de acción a nivel molecular y celular.La obra presenta una gran riqueza iconográfica, ya que incluye más de 1.000 esquemas y dibujos esquemáticos a todo color.Como novedad, al final de la obra se ha incorporado una tabla con valores normales de laboratorio, de gran utilidad para una consulta rápida y por tanto una mejor interpretación de la alteración de los parámetros en las diferentes patologías.La nueva edición incorpora el recurso online en inglés StudentConsult.com en el que se incluyen numerosas herramientas didácticas tales como preguntas de autoevaluación, casos clínicos, animaciones de procesos fisiológicos junto con el correspondiente e-book.

La 13a edición de esta obra se inscribe en la larga tradición de este exitoso texto como el principal tratado de fisiología médica del mundo.


El texto claro y detallado, se complementa con ilustraciones didácticas que resumen los conceptos clave sobre fisiología y fisiopatología.


Obra escrita por un solo autor, lo que refuerza su coherencia y se centra en los contenidos más importantes para los estudiantes de cursos básicos y avanzados de Medicina.


Acceso a StudentConsult.com que incluye texto completo, figuras interactivas y referencias bibliográficas junto con 50 preguntas de autoevaluación y más de una docena de animaciones (contenidos en inglés).
