Textbook of Medical Biochemistry pdf will provide you the 8th edition Medical Biochemistry textbook for free! If you want then you can purchase this book from our site at a low cost. The latest edition of the Textbook of Medical Biochemistry provides a concise, comprehensive overview of biochemistry, with a clinical approach to understand disease processes.

Beginning with an introduction to cell biology, the book continues with an analysis of biomolecule chemistry, molecular biology, and metabolism, as well as chapters on diet and nutrition, the biochemistry of cancer and AIDS, and environmental biochemistry. Each chapter includes numerous images, multiple-choice and essay-style questions, as well as highlighted text to help students remember the key points.

“Today’s Biochemistry is Tomorrow’s Medicine” rightly said by many is truly justified by Dr (Brig) MN Chatterjea

and Dr. Rana Shinde in their Textbook of Medical Biochemistry. The authors’ sincere efforts are appreciated both by students and faculty who have been using this book, which is meeting most of the requirements of MCI regulations. I have found a lot of appreciation and greater acceptance in India and abroad for which authors have put in special efforts to cover a wide spectrum of current topics in medical biochemistry through constant review and changes from time-to-time. This popular book itself is a good guide and a tool for both undergraduate students and teachers in medical biochemistry.

Preface of 8th edition

It is a great pleasure to present the 8th Edition of Textbook of Medical Biochemistry pdf to our beloved teachers and students. The main framework of the book has been retained, without much changes, new additions have been made, some portions rewritten in certain chapters. Few teachers wanted that the university question types and MCQs to be added at the end of each chapter which was in existence in the first three editions but later removed to reduce pages. To quote, “I suggest that short type of questions and multiple-choice questions should be included at the end of each chapter in a future edition of the book.”

We have included the same in the topics pertaining to MBBS. We feel confident that this edition will fulfill the requirement of the undergraduate students as per MCI recommendations and also meet the needs and expectations of postgraduate students of Biochemistry. As the book is clinically oriented, it will be of much help to PG students of other disciplines, viz. Pathology/medicine/pediatrics, etc. Color printing has been used to make the book more attractive, easy to record, and highlighting the important portions like Clinical Aspects/Significance and Biochemistry Importance.

The overall objective of the book Textbook of Medical Biochemistry pdf has been to provide concise yet authoritative coverage on the basics of Biochemistry with a clinical approach to understand the disease processes. The important points in the text to be remembered by the students have been highlighted in bold and italicized prints. We do not claim to the perfect. Errors/mistakes may creep-up due to oversight/or printing errors.

We shall look forward to any valuable comments and useful suggestions from teachers and students so that errors are rectified and suggestions are taken into account for the future. We sincerely thanks Shri Jitendar P Vij (Chairman and Managing Director), Mr. PG Bandhu (Director-Sales), and Mr. Tarun Duneja (Director-Publishing) for their untiring work and keen efforts to bring out the new revised edition of the book.

Preface of 1st Edition

Biochemistry holds a key position in the curricula of medical colleges under Indian universities and is one of the Basic preclinical science subjects for first professional MBBS students. Biochemistry is being transformed with astonishing rapidity and current efflorescence in the knowledge in this subject has necessitated that it should be learned separately from physiology. The three basic science subjects make a plinth for the house of medicine. A sound and comprehensive learning of biochemistry will help a medical student understand medicine and pathology more clearly.

A large number of books on biochemistry for medical students are available in the market—both international And Indian. Many of the international books are voluminous and too difficult for our students of medicine to Handle and comprehend. The Textbook of Medical Biochemistry pdf for the medical students is the outcome of the joint efforts of a medical and a nonmedical biochemist, who possess considerable experience in teaching biochemistry to undergraduate and postgraduate medical students of Indian universities. We have tried our utmost to ensure that the language used is lucid and simple, makes an easy-reading, and the Text provides an intelligent and comprehensive study. At the same time, we have attempted to maintain a high Standard after incorporating the recent developments and concepts.

Though the book is primarily meant for the first professional MBBS students, certain chapters have been dealt with Within greater detail to meet the requirements of postgraduates, viz. MSc, MD (Biochemistry) students and those Preparing for Diplomat in NBE. It meets the requirements of students of medical, dental science, agricultural science, home science, and others who have to take a basic course in biochemistry.

Top reviews of Textbook of Medical Biochemistry

This book is extremely helpful for MBBS majors. I have read many other books but this one has a very simple and easily understandable language. The chapters are also precise and informative, not too long, and boring. Perfect study buddy!– by Koushiki


Very good textbook for students and teachers who don’t have time to read elaborate, unnecessary stories before the main points of the topic they are trying to study. A very handy book for easy revision. I recommend it as a companion to Medical and Para-medical students.– by OJBILLIONS
