Chronic inflammatory, malignant and metabolic diseases of the liver, pancreas and bile system account for substantial morbidity and mortality. Thus, new strategies to prevent, diagnose and treat such diseases are urgently needed. This book is the proceedings of the Falk Symposium 150, "Disease Progression and Disease Prevention in the Gastrointestinal Tract", held in Berlin, Germany, on 3-4 October, 2005, and focusses on the biliary system, pancreas and liver. Pathogenic processes are described as well as primary and secondary prevention and treatment of disease. Scientific and clinical experts offer a broad understanding and pave the ground for extensive interdisciplinary discussions. In this sense, the symposium generated new aspects contributing to "translation research" developing also - at least in some aspects - new perspectives on the various different pathogenic mechanisms in gastrointestinal organs. The present book summarizes the state of the art in these different disease entities, as presented at the meeting.269pp.

This is the Deluxe Hardback edition in a black slipcase.Slight marking to slipcase,some slight creasing to head of d/j spine,From the foreword.It has often been said that books, as the ideas they hold, have a life of their own. A life which estranges itself from the desire and intentions of the author himself. This book was started several times. In fact, I believe it was written many times. Or maybe, it often rewrote itself, and each time it seemed to take a different course: its own course. It began as a mere bundle of data cards; it continued with the addition of different historical criticisms; it later launched into the field of comparison and illustration; then, it became imprisoned in technical complexity and it ended up being none and a bit of each, It is now what it itself wanted to be: an open area where the character, performing what Calderon de la Barca named 'The Great Theatre of the World', can be seen. A Great Theatre that could be besides labelled as 'Urban Planning'. When the life and works of somebody appear together in a book, as it seems to be the case here, they both can act as enemies and destroy each other. This book consists of three parts: The firsts two, called 'Logbook 1955-1975' and 'Logbook 1975-2000', reveal the work of Javier de Mesones; and the third, named 'Kaleidoscope', collects those experiences which, in my opinion, can provide a better understanding of his work and hence of his humanity." 569pp.

Edited By Whicher,J.T. And Evans,S.W.
Our understanding of inflammation has increased rapidly in recent years, due in large part to the impact of molecular biology and gene identification and cloning. This book brings together ideas from a number of different biochemical disciplines which are frequently not integrated. The first chapter gives a visual overview of the subject; the remaining chapters are organized into three themes: the affector molecules, the regulatory components and the processes of inflammation itself. This book is aimed at the busy physician or pathologist who wants to be up-to-date with recent developments in immunology as they affect the diagnosis and treatment of many conditions. 313pp.N.B.Spine slightly faded.
