All-new edition of a classic textbook bridging the gap between human biology and clinical practice

The Biology of Disease provides a comprehensive overview of the principles of the disease process. Building on the success of previous editions, this all-new Third Edition reflects the unprecedented challenges that the global community now faces in the field, as well as advances in the basic sciences of cell biology, immunology, and the molecular mechanisms of disease, with all chapters extensively modified to ensure that they remain at the cutting edge of current knowledge.

Each section is followed by case studies which bridge the gap between theory and clinical practice. This Third Edition includes 72 case studies in total, of which 34 are new. All diagrams and figures have been updated to present the most relevant information at a glance, and a new companion website with more than 500 multiple choice questions in two difficulty levels has been made available.

Written by three highly qualified academics with significant experience in the field, The Biology of Disease includes information on:

  • Emergence of new and drug resistant pathogens and an increasing recognition of the environmental factors, including climate change, that influence health
  • The growing impact of diet and physical inactivity on the development of obesity and related disorders including cancer and type 2 diabetes
  • Principles of epidemiology, cell reproduction, injury and death, inflammation and disorders of immunity
  • Disorders of blood and blood vessels including anaemia, vascular disorders, and disorders of haemostasis

The Biology of Disease is an essential textbook resource for medical students with a focus in physiology, pathophysiology, or pharmacology, along with undergraduate students in biomedical science, biomedicine, medical biochemistry, and human biology.
