       utilize homocysteine levels in the diagnosis, prediction 
       and management of and research into vascular disease and 
       many other conditions. It also familiarizes readers with 
       the pathophysiology and clinical implications of 
       hyperhomocysteinemia. Laboratory investigations are 
       gaining importance in the diagnosis and prognosis of 
       patients, and as such, scientists and laboratorians are 
       constantly attempting to identify new markers that will 
       help in earlier diagnosis and better prognostication of 
       conditions with high morbidity and mortality, as well as 
       high prevalence. According to the WHO, developing 
       countries are home to 80% of patients with coronary artery
       disease (CAD) and stroke - conditions with a mortality 
       second only to cancer. Intensive research in these areas 
       has resulted in the identification of homocysteine 
       (declared the 'marker of the millennium') and several new 
       markers for the diagnosis and prediction of CAD and 
       stroke. The book is a valuable resource for clinicians and
       consultants in practice, as well as for postgraduate and 
       undergraduate students of medicine, biotechnology and
