Description

Comprehensively updated and expanded since the publication of Walter F. Loeb and Fred W. Quimby’s second edition in 1999, the new The Clinical Chemistry of Laboratory Animals, 3rd Edition, (PDF) continues as the most complete reference on in vivo animal studies. By organizing the ebook into species- and organ/class-specific chapters, this ebook provides information to enable a theoretical understanding of clinical chemistry across laboratory species along with information on evaluation and interpretation of clinical chemistry data relevant to particular organ systems.

  • Offers extensive reference lists at the end of each chapter to facilitate further study
  • Offers information regarding evaluation and interpretation of a variety of individual clinical chemistry endpoints
  • Serves as the comprehensive, authoritative source of the clinical chemistry of the most commonly used laboratory animals
  • Closes with detailed chapters dedicated to descriptions of statistical analyses and biomarker development of clinical chemistry-related topics
  • Includes thorough chapters dedicated to descriptions of clinical chemistry-related topics specific to every laboratory species together with organ/class-specific chapters

Now funded by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM), this well-respected resource includes chapters on numerous laboratory species and offers pertinent information on their unique physiological characteristics, methods for sample collection, and preanalytical sources of variation for the particular species. Fundamental methodology for common procedures for each species is also discussed.

New Chapters in the Third Edition Include:

    • Vitamins
    • Statistical Methods
    • Development of Biomarkers
    • Evaluation of Bone Function and Injury
    • The Laboratory Zebrafish and Other Fishes
    • Evaluation of Skeletal Muscle Function and Injury
    • Evaluation of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Function and Injury

The Clinical Chemistry of Laboratory Animals 3rd Edition is intended as a reference for use by veterinary students, veterinary toxicologists, clinical veterinarians, veterinary clinical pathologists, and laboratory animal veterinarians to help in study design, collection of samples, and interpretation of clinical chemistry data for laboratory species.
