Biochemistry for the Pharmaceutical Sciences is a concise practical resource for pharmacy students to learn the basics of biochemistry as it relates to pharmacy practice. This accessible reference focuses closely on the two main areas of biochemistry important to pharmacy: (l) how the cell uses foodstuffs for energy and biosynthesis, and (2) how enzymes operate, are inhibited, and can be used for diagnostic purposes. The connection of metabolism to disease states is frequently used to reinforce the material and to make it relevant to pharmacy practitioners. Biochemistry for the Pharmaceutical Sciences builds on previous courses in organic chemistry and cell biology, and emphasizes primary metabolism that is relevant to human physiology and pathologies. The text prepares the students for more advanced courses in pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, and drug metabolism. Each chapter has a detailed set of learning objectives, including a vocabulary list, discussion questions for review and reflection, as well as multiple choice questions to access learning and comprehension.
