IMPORTANCE OF BIOCHEMISTRY
IN MEDICINE
The European Federation for
Medicinal Chemistry says

the biochemistry is a guide to drug


discovery and for its application

for example the morphine is a drug that


reduce the pain in terminal cáncer
the biochemistry helps us understand The pathology of any
the biochemical changes and related disease is studied
physiological alteration in the body through biochemical
changes
in the present scenario many people
rely in taking multivitamin and minerals
for better health

the function and role of the vitamins


is described only by biochemistry
there are many disorders due
to hormonal imbalance in
specially women and children

the formation of hormones in the normal


body function is taught in biochemistry by
which the physician can understand the
concerned problem during treatment
Importance of biochemistry in Nursing

Biochemistry is of great use


within the field of
nursing, with many practical
applications that can assist
you in becoming a better
nurse..
Using biochemistry can be helpful
Knowing the chemical in the nursing profession, allowing
reactions of drugs to nurses to determine how much
the human body and medicine should be prescribed or
mixing said drugs given to each patient they
encounter
The influence exercised by
the environment is reflected
both in morphological
structure, and chemical
structure of organisms.
Organic matter is
formed, transformed and is
degraded in any living
organism (plant, animal or
microorganism).
Biochemical processes play an
important role in many
branches of food industry and
especially in the process of
processing raw materials, plant
or animal kind. Another
example are the enzymes
involved in various processes
which help to improve crops
IMPORTANCE OF
BIOCHEMISTRY IN NUTRITION

For a maintenance of health


WATER IS NECESSARY

Optimum intake of many


chemicals

like
vitamins, minerals, es
sential fatty acids
The nutrients value of food material

can
also

Be determined by
biochemical tests
IMPORTANCE OF BIOCHEMISTRY IN PHARMACY

Gives an idea of its


constitution

Its change of degradation


with varying temperature

DRUGS
how drugs are metabolized
by biochemical reactions in
presence of enzymes
