E-BOOK DESCRIPTION
In recent years, increased emphasis has been placed on how changes in the genome are expressed as disease. This information now has a larger role in both diagnosis and therapy, which is reflected in the text for this edition. We have preserved Dr. Crowley’s organization from the Ninth Edition, starting with six general chapters followed by chapters on organ systems and their diseases, but in this Tenth Edition we have provided more information on the cellular and molecular roots of disease. The Audience How did we visualize the reader of this work? The authors hope that any individual interested in the health sciences who wishes to understand the nature of disease would find the text of interest. Specifically, we hope that the text would allow a beginning student of the health sciences who has a working knowledge of biology to equip themselves with the concepts and vocabulary for more specialized areas of study in any of the health related fields. To do this we have taken particular care to present recent information relating to the therapy and molecular diagnosis of disease. New to This Edition Throughout this new edition, extensive updates have been made.
