In the three years since the publication of the first edition of this book on clinical biochemical tests and interpretations enough new information has become available in this field to warrant extensive revision and the publication of a new edition. The chapters on hormones and proteins have been greatly expanded and rewritten, and new sections on hydroxyindoles, transaminases, and mucoproteins have been included. Newer developments in analytical techniques have been added in many chapters throughout the book. The arrangement of the chapters and the presentation of material within each chapter closely follows that of the first edition. Reference is made to recent American and English literature.
