About this book


Inflammatory Bowel Disease: From Bench to Bedside is a detailed and comprehensive story of the local and systemic pathophysiology of intestinal inflammation including management strategies. Research advances and current concepts of etiopathogenesis in the context of what is already known of the clinicopathologic features of these disorders are explored. This volume blends recent advances in the basic and clinical sciences as they relate to inflammatory bowel disease and emphasizes the effectiveness of a team approach of basic scientists and clinician investigators in this field.

`This is one of the most comprehensive, well written and convincing books on IBD we have had the opportunity to examine in recent years. It is well written (it includes several well known experts in the field), nicely illustrated, up to date (references reach up to 2001) and extremely stimulating. If you have EUR 200 to invest, do not hesitate to buy this book: you will be well rewarded by all you will learn when you glance through its pages.'
