The Fourth Edition of the compendium pools together the knowledge and experience of experts from all over the world, who are engaged in teaching and research in the field of biochemistry, medical sciences and allied disciplines.

Comprising 20 sections, the present edition of the book has been substantially revised incorporating the latest research and achievements in the field. Beginning appropriately with chemical architecture of the living systems, role and significance of biochemical reactions, organization of specialised tissues, and importance of food and nutrition, the book explores beyond traditional boundaries of biochemistry. The knowledge of various organ systems has been expanded covering their normal function, ailments and dysfunction. A chapter on Eye and Vision explaining molecular basis of cataract and glaucoma have been added. Also, the book introduces stem cells and regenerative therapy and defines molecules associated with pleasure, happiness, stress and anxiety.

A Section on Gastrointestinal and Biliary System elaborates on physiology and dysfunction including fatty liver and its implications, and hepatitis viruses.

The knowledge of Human Genetics and Biochemical Basis of Inheritance has been appropriately expanded to reflect the latest advances in various domains. Besides DNA fingerprinting for identity establishment, the Section discusses epigenetics, micro-RNA and siRNA including their role in gene expression, chromatin modification and its association with human diseases, and genetic engineering. It also explores emerging areas such as metabolomics and proteomics; synthetic biology; and dual use technology in bioterrorism.

Due emphasis has been given to the Section on Cell Replication and Cancer. Emergence of the use of probiotics in human health has also been highlighted. Besides, an entire Section has been devoted to male and female reproductive systems, fertilization, implantation, pregnancy, lactation, and assisted reproductive technology. Immunology, including vaccines and immunization, has been given due attention with latest updates in this fast growing area.

Modern medicine, despite its stupendous advances cannot provide cure for all ailments. Thus, the new edition provides knowledge of alternative medicine systems—Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Unani, Yoga and Herbal Medicine.

Incorporating vast information on the latest and emerging areas, the book will be of immense value to the students of medical sciences not only in their preclinical years, but also in all phases of medical course including postgraduate education and practice. Besides, it will also serve as a valuable source to the students of biochemistry and human bi
