Two titles from the bestselling Oxford Handbook series are now available in this great value pack.Written by biomedical scientists and clinicians to disseminate the fundamental scientific principles that underpin clinical medicine, this new edition of the Oxford Handbook of Medical Sciences provides a clear, easily digestible account of basic cell physiology and biochemistry, and aninvestigation of the traditional piers of medicine (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pathology and pharmacology) integrated in the context of each of the major systems relevant to the human body. Cross-referenced to the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Medicine, and thoroughly illustrated, it is theideal introduction to the basic medical sciences for junior medical students, and a perfect revision guide for senior students. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Pathology provides an accessible and easy-to-use handbook for medical students and doctors, which succinctly explains the pathology behind important and common diseases relevant to the whole range of medical and surgical specialties. It covers basic generalpathological principles and follows a systems-based approach, highlighting the most common conditions in each area. Macroscopic and microscopic pathological features are described, as well as relevant immunohistochemical, molecular, and genetic information. Up-to-date staging information is provided for all major malignancies, and reference symbols are used to highlight important points and provide quick linksbetween related topics. This essential guide to pathology is an invaluable resource for medical students, pathology trainees, junior doctors, and biomedical scientists.

Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition "I would certainly recommend this book for clinical students who want to refresh some basic sciences later in their education. This is a reliable reference book which I think will serve me very well into my clinical years and I shall keep by my desk for thosemoments where I need to find a long-ago learnt and now-forgotten fact!" --Cambridge Medicine Journal
