In Gastrointestinal Endocrinology, leading clinical and basic science researchers present the latest molecular and cellular findings on key gastrointestinal peptide hormones, illuminating their physiology and pathophysiology, as well as highlighting the regulatory mechanisms underlying their actions in the gastrointestinal tract. The book focuses on gastrointestinal peptide hormone physiology, receptor biology and pharmacology, processing, and on regulatory mechanisms in the gut, including pancreatic feedback mechanisms. Also included are chapters on the trophic effects of gut peptides on GI and pancreatic cancer; the regulation of gut peptide gene expression; and gastric secretion, especially in disease states. Gastrointestinal Endocrinology offers authoritative, state-of-the-art chapters that address of the rapid progress which has occurred in elucidating the details of gastrointestinal endocrinology. The book will be indispensable to today's endocrinologists, gastroenterologists, surgeons, pharmacologists, and physiologists who want to better understand the regulatory role that peptides play in intercellular communication in the gut, as well as between the gut and other organs in the body
