Edited By Berg,P.A.
Ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) has been shown by many studies to be of benefit in the treatment of primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) and also of primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) (and other cholestatic liver diseases), but the mechanism of action of this drug remains obscure and is, in all probability, of multifactorial nature. Possibly, complex interaction of immunomodulatory and membrane-stabilizing effects in conjunction with an altered composition of the bile acid pool are responsible for the beneficial effect. This book, the proceedings of 86th Falk Symposium "Bile Acids and Immunology" (Part 1 of the Basel Liver Week), held in Basel, Switzerland, October 17-18, 1995, starts with an update on important mechanisms involved in autoimmune mediated processes covering the presentation of antigens and autoantigens by professional and non-professional antigen presenting cells, the recognition of the MHC-antigen complex by T-cells, the role of natural and disease-specific antibodies, as well as the control of immune processes via TH1/TH2 cells and their cytokines. It then focuses on the recent findings concerning the aetiopathogenesis of PBC and PSC and the effect of UDCA therapy in these disorders. The most relevant questions which have to be answered in this field are: is the biochemical improvement the consequence of a true antiinflammatory or immunosuppressive effect of UDCA or only due to the replacement of hydrophobic by hydrophilic bile acids?; does UDCA increase the efficacy of immunosuppressive drugs and is it necessary to differentiate between patients who need either a mono-UDCA or a combined (UDCA/steroids) therapy?; are PBC and PSC true autoimmune disorders driven by an autoantigen or only "secondary autoimmune" processes induced by a persisting infectious agent, considering the poor response of both disorders to immunosuppressive treatment as compared to patients with autoimmune hepatitis? This book tries to clarify these problems and open new avenues for further research. It should be of interest to all clinicians and researchers in the field of bile acids. N.B.D/J spine slightly faded with slight mark to base of d/j spine.295pp.

Gosling, Philip
Between 1980 and 2000, local authorities in the UK were required by the Local Government, Planning and Land Act 1980, and later by the Local Government Acts of 1988 and 1992, to demonstrate competitiveness in procurement through a statutory Compulsory Competitive Tendering (CCT) procedure regulated by the Secretary of State. Although CCT was abolished in January 2000, its intensive application over a 20-year period has left a lasting legacy in the conduct of local public procurement in the UK. In addition, the interaction of CCT and European law - in particular, that relating to public procurement and the transfer of undertakings - continues to have significance for local authorities throughout the EU. This book is the outcome of research into the effects of CCT on two English local authorities. Its detailed analysis examines the CCT legislation, the principal legal and practical issues that it raised both in the UK and for the EU, its effects on the two local authorities selected for study and the broader implications for local public procurement in general. 294pp.

Aristophanes; Ruden, Sarah (translator)
Aristophanes' comic masterpiece of war and sex remains one of the greatest plays ever written. Led by the title character, the women of the warring city-states of Greece agree to withhold sexual favours with their husbands until they agree to cease fighting. The war of the sexes that ensues makes 'Lysistrata' a comedy without peer in the history of theatre. 126pp.
