Back cover copy

Identifying how, why and in whom gastrointestinal disease occurs, and what can be done to prevent it, is of key importance for the modern-day gastroenterologist and researcher. Brought to you by the world's leading gastroenterologists, the second edition of GI Epidemiology: Diseases and Clinical Methodology is the only book that combines detailed analysis of the epidemiology of GI disease with a study of the methodology of clinical research. With a much greater clinical focus on the diagnostic and management approach for each disease than before, all existing chapters are fully updated with the very latest in statistical and clinical data. In addition, the revised edition contains several significant improvements, notably: - Five extra disease epidemiology chapters: Upper GI Bleeding; Hepatitis B and C; Common Tropical GI Diseases; Nutritional Epidemiology and GI Cancers; and Obesity among Adults - More illustrations, including maps of each disease - A more international focus with the inclusion of two experienced European editors - MCQs, summary checklists and key points throughout - Ten extra online-only chapters on methodological issues related to GI epidemiology such as Patient reported GI Epidemiology: Diseases and Clinical Methodology, 2nd Edition is the perfect reference tool for gastroenterologists involved in both patient management and clinical research, and also for epidemiologists involved specifically in GI disease data and more general epidemiological studies.
