About the Authors
  • The area of gastrointestinal disorders is currently the focus of a large amount of sophisticated research. This volume brings fully up to date the most recent scientific and clinical advances in gastrointestinal and liver immunology. An international team of authorities has summarized basic scientific advances in the area of the gut immune system and the immune abnormalities relevant to gastrointestinal and liver disease. It includes the latest developments in relation to organ transplantation of the liver and gut, HIV infection of the gut, and the recently discovered disease H. pylori gastritis. Disorders of autoimmunity are focused on as well as immunodeficency. A feature of the volume is to highlight the relevance of such scientific advances to the clinical management of patients with immune gut and liver disorders. The volume will be an essential source of reference for all scientists interested in mucosal immunology, for clinical immunologists, gastroenterologists and hepatologists, transplant surgeons, and pediatricians.

    • Provides an overview of scientific advances
    • Covers the main immune-mediated diseases of the gut and liver
    • Practical advice on clinical management of these patients

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...a high-quality review that is suitable for the general clinician interested in GI and liver diseases, and an excellent addition to a general library. Even for the practising clinical gastroenterologist, this would be an excellent way to update knowledge in the field of mucosal immunology....this textbook receives a well-deserved vote of approval." Kenneth Croitoru, Annals RCPSC

    "...recommended as a reference guide for clinical immunologists and clinicians....Overall strong points of this book include its clear exposition and coverage of a wide range of topic pertaining to GI and hepatic immunology. The contributors provide chapters that are up to date and well referenced. Each of the chapters is written with an approach that provides useful information and concepts that are of benefit to clinicians as well as researchers and students interested in these areas of immunology." Charles M. Dozois, CSM Newsletter
