Abstract: This book provides a solid introduction to medical metabolomics and systems biology, and demonstrates how they have been applied to studies in medicine and human health, including nutrition and pathogenic microorganisms. Following core themes of diagnosis, pathology and aetiology of diseases, this book provides a reference for health care professionals interested in how to use metabolomics for medical research, especially research on neuroscience/neurology, cardiovascular disease and health, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, liver diseases, digestive health, infectious diseases, type 2 diabetes mellitus and metabolic syndrome, skeletal muscle metabolism and dysfunction, and neoplasms.
