Many liver diseases may be associated with cholestasis, and in some of them cholestasis is the leading symptom. This text, the proceedings of Falk Symposium No. 102 (Part I of the Liver Week, Freiburg, 1997), gives an update on the anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology of bile formation and secretion. Significant progress has been achieved in recent years due to the application of molecular biology which led to the identification of the specific transporters involved in bile formation and secretion. Furthermore, medical treatment in cholestatic liver diseases has made progress due to the introduction of ursodeoxycholic acid and other medical procedures. Finally, cholestatic liver diseases are major indications for liver transplantation. Primary biliary cirrhosis has been the first disease where liver transplantation was shown to increase survival and improve quality of life. A completely separate, but also heterogeneous group are patients with paediatric cholestatic liver diseases. Some of them are also treated with liver transplantation, while in others genetic defects are being identified. The purpose of the symposium was to bring together well-known scientists and clinicians from around the world to discuss the recent progress on the physiology and pathophysiology of bile formation and secretion. Furthermore, the molecular basis of, and the therapeutic developments in cholestatic liver diseases and its progress were discussed. This volume deals with most, if not all, modern aspects of cholestatic liver diseases, with contributions on pathology, biochemistry, pharmacology, physiology, hepatology, immunology, paediatrics, and last but not least surgery. 291pp

Green, Roger and Trigoso, Joana
N.B.Top inch of book spine has been bumped otherwise As New.This book is copiously illustrated with archive photographs as well as high quality pictures depicting the Portuguese golf resorts developed under the Jordan Group banner, including photographs of many of the world's top golfers in action and famous personalities from sport, show-business, politics and business who attended the many major events organised by the Group. The main theme of the book centres on how the Andre Jordan Group changed the whole course of golfing history in Europe and boosted tourism in the Algarve by setting a new trend in golf and leisure resort development which others were later to imitate if not equal. Quinta do Lago, based on the American country club concept, was the first of its kind in Portugal and it became the blueprint for the future development of residential golf resorts in Portugal. The emphasis in the editorial is on creativity and innovation and especially the Group's commitment to strict eco-friendly principles in the design and construction or renovation and management of quality resorts (ie: Quinta do Lago, Belas Clube de Campo and Vilamoura) which today boast championship courses recognised as world class. The story also strongly underlines the imaginative marketing and new ideas that, for example, brought the Portuguese Open to Quinta da Lago in 1976 and helped to keep the championship on the European calendar at a very difficult time. A further series of seven Opens were to follow at Quinta do Lago as well as many other major tournaments such as the Algarve World Cup and the Taca Presidente da Republica. These events attracted worldwide Press and TV coverage, thereby promoting the region as a tourist destination and doing much to encourage investment. Some of the most prominent names in the world of golf have contributed information, recollections, anecdotes and commendations on the achievements of the Andre Jordan Group and this has done much to enliven and enrich the editorial. They include Arnold Palmer, Colin Montgomerie, William 'Rocky' Roquemore, William Hawtree, Ken Schofield, and, Peter Adams.248pp.
