Biology of Disease (Free PDF)

Description
Many students decide to follow a career path that is related to medicine, for example Biomedical Sciences (Medical Technology in the USA), Clinical Sciences, Clinical Physiology and Nursing. While there are a number of textbooks for medical students and nurses as well as a number covering the clinical biochemistry area, there did not seem to us to be a book that dealt with disease from a more scientific standpoint. Such a book would cover a range of disease conditions, their causes and diagnoses, and outline treatment but set at an appropriate level. The idea of writing Biology of Disease arose from discussions between ourselves and various colleagues and students over a number of years regarding the absence of a single book, which summarized most of the clinical material studied by first- and second-year Biomedical Sciences and related-degree students. It was felt that such a textbook would assist students during the first and second years of their degree programmes, particularly if it covered aspects of the Biomedical Sciences appropriate to courses accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science of the UK and similar courses elsewhere.
