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).

Medical chemistry - Lectures for General Medicine students

The subject Medical Chemistry includes selected chapters from general, inorganic, physical, organic chemistry. Teaching focuses mainly on bioorganic chemistry, which is a static part and an introduction to the study of medical biochemistry. Knowledge of the structure and function of chemical substances and compounds, as well as their interaction and factors which can influence these interactions is very important for students of General Medicine. Medical Chemistry represent the basis especially for the study of Medical Biochemistry, Pathobiochemistry and Clinical Biochemistry.

We focused for information about dental materials, auxiliary dental materials and to the importance of the polymerisation in dentistry.

Medical Informatics

Author: Jaroslav Majerník

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.

Practical exercises from Medical Chemistry

Practical exercises from Medical Chemistry is a set of experimental exercises designed for a better understanding of the subject. Laboratory manuals for the practical exercises are arranged into weeks according to the syllabus (WT) and contain theoretical introduction as well as experimental procedures for each exercise. Published material represents an effective instrument for understanding of the basic principles of Medical Chemistry.

Revised and supplemented first published version “Practical exercises from Medical Chemistry”. Authors: Stupák M., Rabajdová M., Mašlanková J., Urban P., Tomečková V., Mareková M.

Medical Chemistry – “hand book” for students of General and Dental Medicine

Author: Marek Stupák, Lukáš Smolko, Peter Urban, Jana Mašlanková, Beáta Hubková, Beáta Čižmárová, Anna Birková, Vladimíra Tomečková, Miroslava Rabajdová, Katarína Dubayová, Mária Mareková

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.

Medical Chemistry - Calculations

Proper administration of individual medications and reagents is of the upmost importance in the clinical practice of future doctors. It can be affected by age, body weight, kidney and liver health, and other health conditions. Subject Medical Chemistry is therefore an essential part of the theoretical education at medical faculties. The basics for the successful completion of the course are also basic chemistry calculations including solution preparation, stoichiometric calculations, pH calculations (including buffers) and spectrophotometric calculations. In addition to brief theoretical introductions, the material also contains a series of examples for practice, in order to help students in repeating and preparing for the exam from Medical Chemistry.
