Medical biochemistry - Lectures for General Medicine students

Author: Mária Mareková, Marek Stupák, Katarína Dubayová, Peter Urban

annotation image

Medical Biochemistry has an irreplaceable role in study of General Medicine. The students should learn about biochemical reactions in all living systems, especially in the human body. The knowledge will help them later to diagnose and treat many diseases correctly. In firsts semester is study concentrated to metabolic processes connected with metabolism of nutrients (e.g. saccharides, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids). In second semester is teaching focused to study metabolism of organs (e.g. liver, kidney, muscles, hard tissue, skin), chemical communications and introduction to Clinical Biochemistry.

Medical Biochemistry has an irreplaceable role in study of Dental Medicine. The students should learn about biochemical reactions taking place in the human body. The knowledge will help them better understand processes take place in the mouth. In firsts semester is study concentrated to metabolic processes connected with metabolism of nutrients (e.g. saccharides, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids). In second semester is teaching focused to study metabolism of organs (e.g. liver, kidney), hard tissue and to oral biochemistry and pathobiochemistry (e.g. dental plaque, tooth decay and tartar).

Biometrics represents the science dealing with measurement and statistical analysis of people's physical and behavioural characteristics. It offers various methods and algorithms that are integrated into the biometric technologies and systems in order to identify or verify individuals that are under surveillance and/or to manage access control.

Medical Informatics

Author: Jaroslav Majerník

annotation image

Medical informatics represents a science where the data, information and knowledge from the area of medicine and health care are systematically processed. Therefore, informatics itself is an essential part of medicine affecting health care system as well as education of its employees. Presentations here are intended to be used as introduction to the study of this area.

Clinical biochemistry - Lectures

Author: Eva Ďurovcová

Clinical Biochemistry is an extension of the basic rate of Medical Biochemistry from 2nd year. It is a highly applied medical biochemistry, which provides teachers - doctors with experience in clinical biochemistry. The aim of the course is in the form of lectures and seminars to provide information on biochemical investigation methods for selected diseases and diagnostic options refer to the relationship between metabolism and laboratory values in model tests patients align tests with monitoring therapy and selecting the most appropriate investigative methods in relation to the expected diagnosis. Correct indication and interpretation of clinical biochemistry tests is an important part of a physician's daily work.

This publication is intended mainly for students of medicine studying at the UPJŠ in Košice, Faculty of Medicine. The textbook covers the basic knowledge of selected topics of general, physical, inorganic, organic and bioorganic chemistry required for successful completion of the course of Medical Chemistry. Knowledge of the structures and functions of chemical substances and compounds, as well as their interactions and factors of surroundings influencing those interactions is very important for next study medical biochemistry incoming physicians. For better and easier understanding is the text appropriately supplemented with figures, tables, and numerous of chemical schemes. The separate part of this publication presents the chemistry of the most important dental materials used in clinical practise of future dentists, including the properties of metals, polymers and impression materials.
