This module covers the physiology of the major
organ systems (e.g. renal, hepatic, gastrointestinal,
cardiovascular, skeletal, muscle and connective tissue),
the homeostatic control of acid-base and electrolytes, and
the changes that occur as a result of diseases. Emphasis
is placed on explaining the underlying biochemical
disturbances or metabolic derangements in diseased
states and their appropriate evaluation and diagnosis
using selective techniques. Topics include diagnostic
enzymology, proteins in health and disease, disorders in
carbohydrates, lipid and protein metabolism (including
inherited disorders), biochemical assessment in nutritional
disorders, hypertension and malignancy, therapeutic drug
monitoring, and toxicological screening.
