Falk Symposium 109. Colorectal cancer is one of the most common causes of tumour-associated death in Western countries, and its incidence has been increasing in recent decades. The most important determinant for the course of the disease is tumour stage at the time of diagnosis. The detection of molecular changes in tumour tissue and in benign adenomatous polyps has improved our knowledge of colorectal carcinogenesis. Diseases with a high risk for malignant transformation, as well as family predisposition as an independent risk factor, have been identified. Furthermore, dietary and environmental factors, together with the intake of aspirin and other NSAIDs, influence tumour development. This implies new ways of specific testing for early diagnosis and new prevention strategies based on endoscopy and drug therapy. 282pp.

Hardly any other part of the human body is of such interdisciplinary interest as the anal, perianal and rectal region. Gastroenterologists, dermatologists, urologists, general practitioners and surgeons specializing in proctology, phlebology, and coloproctological surgery are involved in this region between the ectoderm, transitional zone, and entoderm. Diagnostic procedures, such as endoscopy, radiology, sonography, manometry, electromyography, and histopathology are even more diverse, in particular where the differential diagnosis of non-neoplastic conditions of the anorectal region is concerned. The Falk Symposium No. 118, held in Freiburg, Germany, on October 1-2, 2000, focused on the morphology and function of the pelvic floor and its dysfunction, radiation damage in proctology, haemorrhoidal complaints, and chronic inflammatory rectal diseases, as well as conditions of the anal and perianal region. 248pp.N.B.Slight fade mark to base of d/j spine.

Edited By Hunt,R.H.,Tygat,G.N.J.,
The impact of Helicobacter pylori on basic science and the clinical management of patients with the complications of this infection is bewildering. The explosion of recent information both in the laboratory and at the bedside has progressed at an unprecedented rate. The objective of this text, in furthering this progress, has been to integrate this recent information and organize a series of presentations and discussions between investigators and clinicians on all aspects of H. pylori research and to review the current position and future research directions. To that end, the second meeting "Helicobacter pylori: Basic Mechanisms to Clinical Cure" was organized in June 1996 in Ottawa, Canada, following the successful format of the first such meeting held in Amelia Island, Florida, in 1993. The meeting again focused on all timely aspects of H. pylori research. Internationally renowned basic and clinical scientists explored in depth the spectrum of H. pylori infection and the related complications of gastritis, peptic ulcer, gastric cancer and lymphoma. The manuscripts in this text of the proceedings of the meeting reflect up-to-date information and state of the art approaches to research and management of H. pylori infection and should provide an invaluable reference source. 419pp.

For many years, what has been known about recovery from addictive behaviours has come solely from treatment studies. Only recently has the study of recoveries in the absence of formal treatment or self-help groups provided an alternative source of information. This book on the process of self-change from addictive behaviours presents more than research findings. Rather, it presents the process of self-change from several different perspectives - environmental, cross-cultural, prevention and interventions at both societal and individual level. It provides strategies for how health care practitioners and government policy makers alike can aid and foster self-change. Directions for future research priorities are also presented. 213pp.
