SUMMARY

Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are chronic relapsing diseases that unite patients, their families, friends, health care providers, researchers, employers, and even health care insurers and other health-related industries in an ongoing struggle for knowledge and help. In Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Diagnosis and Therapeutics, a panel of world-renowned clinicians provides a comprehensive yet concise overview of the myriad of issues surrounding these perplexing and troubling illnesses. Writing in a language accessible to those both inside and outside the medical community, these experienced physicians fully explain what IBD is, why it does what it does, how to treat it, and when it is necessary to proceed to surgery or advanced therapy. They also elucidate the pathophysiology of the diseases, review the successes and failures of different therapies, and describe the impact of these diseases on patients, families, and the health care system. Topics of special interest include discussions of current and emerging therapies, new genetic insights, new serological markers, women's issues, economic issues, and the relation between colon cancer and IBD. Many chapters give addresses of organizations, phone numbers, and websites from which additional information and help can be obtained. Comprehensive and informative, Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Diagnosis and Therapeutics offers physicians, patients, their families, and public health officials alike a clear, readable account of the many complex issues involved in inflammatory bowel diseases, Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis
