Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: New Insights Into Mechanisms of Inflammation and Challenges in Diagnosis and Treatment
This volume contains the proceedings of the 76th Falk Symposium held in Estoril, Portugal, May 5-7, 1994, and presents an aetiopathogenesis-based approach to clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic developments in inflammatory bowel disease. The first section deals with the first results of a prospective epidemiological study in the EEC countries, while subsequent sections cover: the important factors responsible for IBD; diagnosis; controversies in clinical management; and insights into therapy, and difficult clinical problems.
