about

Convert the latest genomic data to the most effective patient management and treatment approaches

Clinical Genomics helps healthcare providers translate the vast amount of new genomic data into successful clinical application. It is a comprehensive textbook and practical guide to the use of this information across a broad spectrum of adult diseases – from individual differences in drug responses, cardiac andcancer risks to Alzheimer's and other neurological and psychiatric disorders.

While traditional textbooks on medical genetics focus on classic Mendelian disorders, Clinical Genomics discusses the everyday application of genetic assessment and the diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventiveimplications to the most common adult diseases that healthcare providers encounter. Covering approximately 200 conditions, it is a true clinical text for use across all of internal medicine.

Coverage of each condition is presented in a consistent,clinically relevant manner and includes:

  • Key Points
  • Diagnostic Criteria and Clinical Characteristics
  • Screening and C ounseling
  • Management and Treatment
  • Molecular Genetics and Molecular Mechanism
  • Supplementary Information

    More than ten valuable appendices, include Genetic Privacy; Race, Ancestry, and Genetics; Personalized Medicine in Clinical Practice; Clinical Interpretationof Genomic Data; and Genetic Risk Profiling in the Genomics Era.

    Clinical Genomics is essential for internists, primary care physicians, and other healthcare providers who wish to increase their knowledge of the gene-and-protein level care of patients in a clinical setting.
