Texts on inborn errors of metabolism (IEMs) have traditionally focused on classical biochemistry, clinical presentation, and standard treatment approaches. Inborn Errors of Metabolism is an expansion on this model, one that establishes an innovative pathway approach and provides a newauthority on this family of disease. Alongside the standard cadre of molecular and clinical underpinnings, this volume includes coverage of newborn screenings and an overarching treatment of IEMs as complex diseases - how basic alterations can lead to complex secondary and tertiary effects in metabolism that contribute to increasinglyrecognized natural histories of disease.
Brendan Lee, MD, PhD, is Professor and Chair in the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine. As a pediatrician and geneticist, Dr. Lee studies structural birth defects and inborn errors of metabolism. In the area of metabolic disease, he is developing new treatments for maple syrup urine disease and ure...
