Summary Completely revised and updated, Metabolic and Therapeutic Aspects of Amino Acids in Clinical Nutrition, Second Edition presents current information and discussions on amino acid metabolism in various health and nutritional states. The author re-evaluates data and hypotheses in light of the most recent discoveries in genomics and proteomics research. He covers amino acid uptake routes, physiology, requirements, metabolism, and applications. When the first edition was published, it brought a new perspective to this key area of clinical nutrition research and application. Building on this foundat
