Edited By Lam,S.K.
This text, the proceedings of Falk Symposium 90 held in Hong Kong, February 29-March 1, 1996, presents the most recent advances in all major fields of hepatology. World experts discuss basic and clinical aspects of viral hepatitis, toxic, metabolic and cholestatic liver diseases, liver cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma, gallstone disease and liver transplantation. In the two sections devoted to viral hepatitis, special attention is given to hepatitis C. Besides interferon, new antiviral therapies are discussed. In the section on toxic and metabolic liver diseases, besides drug-induced liver injuries and inborn errors of metabolism, alcoholic liver disease is of special interest. Current interventional treatments for portal hypertension and ascites are discussed in the section on cirrhosis. In the section on hepatocellular carcinoma different therapeutic strategies are compared. An update on pathogenesis and treatment of gallstone disease is also included. The text concludes with a section addressing the newest trends in liver transplantation. Thus, this book presents the an update on hepatobiliary diseases in Asia in 1996. N.B.D/J spine slightly faded with slight mark to base of d/j spine.312pp.

This volume is the proceedings of the symposium `Trends in Inflammatory Bowel Disease Therapy 1999' held in Vancouver, Canada, August 27--29, 1999, and sponsored by the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology, The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of Canada and Axcan Pharma. It is the seventh international IBD symposium to be held in Canada and focuses on all areas of IBD therapy. Topics include: - Genetics; - Pathogenesis with reference to the role of autoimmunity, bacterial factors and neutrophil--epithelial interactions; - Special clinical problems such as difficult diagnoses and challenges presented by children and the elderly; - Bone disease in IBD; - An overview of current therapy; - A discussion of alternative therapy. 262pp.

This book, the proceedings of Falk Symposium 133 on Mechanisms of Intestinal Inflammation: Implications for Therapeutic Intervention in IBD', held in Berlin, Germany, on 10-11 June 2003, summarizes present knowledge in the area of unspecific and specific immune reactions in the gut, recording the gaps in our knowledge and, in particular, presenting the possibilities of targeted intervention. The link to inflammatory bowel diseases - Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis - is always in focus. Chapters by an international panel of basic scientists, clinical researchers and clinicians also record the problems which can originate through today's possible modulation of the immune reaction, setting the basis for review of clinical problems. This book is valuable readings for all scientists and physicians, who, from different perspectives, have an interest in research on IBD and in the clinical management of these diseases. 220pp

Maas, Marnix C.
Molecular imaging techniques enable the visualization of biological processes in living organisms. These techniques rely on synthetic biomolecules ('tracers') that specifically target a physiological process of interest without significantly disturbing it, and that poses some property which allows them to be detected externally. If the detectable property is radioactivity, the molecules are referred to as radiotracers, and the imaging technique is referred to as nuclear imaging. The aims of the research presented in this work are to determine the spatial resolution experimentally, the energy resolution and time resolution attainable with monolithic scintillator detectors, to analyze the dependence of these detector properties on physical quantities such as the scintillator light yield, the APD gain and the noise characteristics of the front-end electronics, and to predict the performance of a small animal PET system based on these detectors. The research presented in this publication is primarily based on experimental work on prototype detector modules. Simulation studies have been carried out in parallel; these are presented elsewhere. Some of the results of these simulation studies are also used in this work. 168pp. N.B. Small crease to bottom corner of rear cover.
