Overview

The gastrointestinal system is responsible for the breakdown and absorption of various foods and liquids needed to sustain life. Other diseases and disorders treated by clinicians in this area include: food allergies, constipation, chronic liver disease and cirrhosis, gallstones, gastritis, GERD, hemorrhoids, IBS, lactose intolerance, pancreatic, appendicitis, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, peptic ulcer, stomach ulcer, viral hepatitis, colorectal cancer and liver transplants. Physiology of the Gastrointestinal Tract, 5/e covers the study of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions of the GI Tract while linking the clinical disease or disorder, bridging the gap between clinical and laboratory medicine.

The new edition is a highly referenced and useful resource for gastroenterologists, physiologists, internists, professional researchers, and instructors teaching courses for clinical and research students.


  • Updated, four-color illustrations

  • Each section edited by preeminent scientist in the field

  • Discusses the multiple processes governing gastrointestinal function

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: R. John Solaro, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This multiauthor, two-volume book is the third edition of a detailed treatise on gastrointestinal physiology and biology. The book is divided into four sections: regulation and growth; motility; salivary, gastric and pancreatic secretion; and digestion and absorption. In addition to the overall editor, there are four associate editors, each an expert in one of the above sections.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of our current understanding of the functioning of the gastrointestinal tract. The development of molecular biological techniques has resulted in an information explosion in this field. As in the previous editions, the authors are all experts in their fields. The chapters provide an update of the cellular and molecular processes underlying gastrointestinal function and relate it to overall systemic physiology.
Audience: The book is targeted to teachers, students, and researchers of gastrointestinal physiology as well as to clinical gastroenterologists. It is very useful both for its information and as a source of references.
Features: The illustrations are black-and-white and are clearly described. The quality of the illustrations could have been better; some of the lettering is unclear. The references are up-to-date.
Assessment: The encyclopedic nature of the book continues to make this an invaluable asset to anyone interested in gastrointestinal physiology and related fields. The extensive expansion of the section on regulation and the overall diversity of chapters from those on signal transduction to those on intestinal adaptation is very useful. However, two areas are conspicuously underrepresented: the molecular basis of contraction and the molecular regulation of epithelial ion transport. There is a lot of recent information in these areas, and their inclusion would have made this excellent book perfect.

Booknews
A comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of the state of knowledge in the field, including the extraordinary advances in the knowledge of some areas of gastrointestinal function in the seven years since the second edition--many of which advances have come from the application of knowledge and techniques in the fields of cellular and molecular biology. The work contains 66 chapters arranged in four sections: regulation and growth; motility; salivary, gastric, and pancreatic secretion; and digestion and absorption. The final product again encompasses more than physiology, and is relevant not only to researchers in the various specialized areas, but also to clinical gastroenterologists, teachers, and students.
