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

Von Moos, Stanislaus
"Designing has less to do with inventing than with recombining stored architectural memories." By saying this, architects Heinz Hilmer and Christoph Sattler are trying to express that they are not inclined to give into the hope that is especially raised in Modernism of being able to invent something really new, but that instead they consciously take their bearings from constantly recurring forms of architecture and urbanism. They neither desire nor aim to design a quite different building or a quite different town, but to develop the building and the city as well as they possibly can from their particular context, literally building on the experience of the past. Another of the two architects' credos is that architecture is an independent discipline with its own laws, and that therefore it should not draw from other areas: "A building is neither a cave nor a tent, neither a tree nor an umbrella, neither a stand nor a machine, neither structure nor construction. A building is a building." Leafing through this book about Hilmer and Sattler's work over the last 25 years - from their first private house, built for philosopher Jurgen Habermas, a reflection on the white, cubic architecture of early Modernism, via the block-edge development in the centre of Karlsruhe and the Gemaldegalerie in the Tiergarten in Berlin down to the urban design for the area around Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, which helped to gain acceptance for the principle of the European city as a living tissue of buildings, streets and squares rather than an ultimately city-hostile agglomeration of high-rise buildings in this part of Berlin - what is conveyed as well as precision of detail, diversity and proportionality is above all the self-confidence of these two architects who are so sure of themselves. 243pp.

The therapeutic handling of autoimmune liver disease is limited because basic mechanistic insights into immunologically mediated pathophysiology have not yet been translated into standard pharmacological treatments. A future expansion of the incidence of autoimmune liver diseases is anticipated because of growing rates of exposure to an increased variety of xenobiotics of dietary, pharmaceutical or environmental origin. This book, the proceedings of an International Falk Workshop held in Konstanz, Germany, January 23-24, 1997, aims to share thinking among immunologists, biochemists, pharmacologists and clinicians in order to better understand the aetiology of this liver disease and its relation to extra-hepatic factors. 118pp.Fading to d/j spine.
