About this book


Based on the results of studies on autoimmunity, the endocrine system, nutrients, metal metabolism and intestinal bacterial flora, this volume thoroughly covers studies on functional correlation of the liver with the spleen, visceral fat, intestinal tract, and central nervous system. Including associations with dysbiosis, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and hepatocellular carcinoma, it offers comprehensive data on correlations of organs with the liver from basic and clinical viewpoints. The Liver in Systemic Disease will especially be of interest to researchers, clinical residents and medical students with an interest in hepatology and gastroenterology. Furthermore, the book has interdisciplinary appeal and provides a foundation that will help physicians to consider clinical conditions of diseases from a broader perspective.
