The laboratory manuals are developed to the foreign students of medicine for practical laboratory exercise and verification of knowledge from medical biochemistry. Exercises are arranged into weeks in winter term (WT) and summer term (ST), like it is in Syllabus of Lectures and practical exercises (WT, ST). Students can apply their manual skill in performing of the experiments, and also train their ability in evaluation of results and making of diagnoses.

The laboratory manuals are developed to the foreign students of medicine for practical laboratory exercise and verification of knowledge from medical biochemistry. Exercises are gathered into bigger groups by topics. Exercises are arranged into weeks, in summer term (ST) and winter term (WT), like it is in Syllabus of Lectures and practical exercises (ST, WT). Students can apply their manual skill in performing of the experiments, and also train their ability in evaluation of results.

The electronic textbook of Clinical Biochemistry – selected chapters (2nd edition) has the ambition to become a practical aid for senior medical students and beginning doctors in the study of laboratory medicine. It should make it easier for them to orientate themselves in routinely used clinical-biochemical examinations and could form a springboard for a more detailed study of laboratory methods and their use in diagnostic and monitoring algorithms. The textbook focuses on disorders of water-ion and acid-base balance disorders, and basic diagnostics of diseases of selected organs.

Psychology is becoming increasingly important in people's lives. It is significant to research human behaviour and how people interact with their environment, as well as how they develop physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. A rising number of people have been both physically and mentally harmed in recent years as a result of cognitive, emotional, or behavioural disorders. It was determined that a study book on psychology for medical students was required.

RNA are noncellular organisms with ribonucleic acid (RNA) in their genome. In most viruses, RNA is single-stranded (ssRNA). An exception is made by reoviruses, whose RNA is double-stranded (dsRNA).In addition, RNA is either segmented (the genome consists of several RNA segments) or unsegmented (one long strand of RNA). RNA viruses that have only a protein capsid on their surface are non-enveloped. RNA viruses, which in addition to the capsid have an additional envelope made of a bilayer of lipids and proteins and specific glycoproteins, are enveloped. The content of the lecture is the classification of RNA viruses and, for selected groups of RNA viruses, structure, replication in the host cell, pathogenicity, diseases, laboratory diagnostics, therapy and prevention are described.
Knowledge of the structure and function of chemical substances and compounds, as well as their interactions and factors which can influence these interactions are very important for study Medical Chemistry and Biochemistry. The supporting materials is based on the secondary school curriculum of chemistry, and represent the summarization of knowledge’s from high school, extended by new knowledge necessary especially for the subsequent study of medical biochemistry. The repetitorium is divided into several chapters and represents a summary of knowledge focused mainly on bioorganic chemistry, including structures, nomenclature and typical reactions.
The book is primarily intended for first-year university students, but it is suitable for anyone who needs to learn. Students can find here the basic principles of learning, principles of how to preserve knowledge, how to concentrate without wasting time, how not to stress before a test or exam and many other practical tips. By acquiring simple knowledge, students will be able to learn effectively with the principles of brain-compatible learning in a way that they will acquire as much information as possible in the shortest period of time with maximum retention; that is minimal forgetting.

Need of carrying out a pharmacological genotyping for providing the individualized pharmacotherapy is shown in the monograph based on the analysis of own and literary data of the central link of drug pharmacokinetics– systems of cytochrome P-450, taking into account its genetic polymorphysm. The monograph is intended for the clinical pharmacologists, geneticists and experts dealing with this problem.

The basic thesis of scientific monograph is in fact comprehensive review of basic knowledge about the health of Roma minority population in Central and Eastern Europe. Monograph describes the health determinants of Roma population from selected health areas: infectious diseases, study of growth and development of children and reproductive health including obstetric conditions, pregnancy outcomes, gynecologic status a newborn parameters.
