Liver is a comprehensive book that discusses all aspects of diseases ranging from epidemiology to prognosis. This book is unique in its conception and presentation, as not only it provides new information but also offers a balanced and rational approach to diseases of liver, pancreas, and biliary system. One of the characteristic features of the book is inclusion of diseases of pancreas and separate chapters on important topics like cytokines and chemokines and apoptosis in liver diseases, as a sound background in these is essential for becoming a good specialist. It contains a chapter on evidence-based clinical practice in hepatology, which is the basis of modern clinical practice. It also includes a chapter on preventive aspects of hepato-biliary diseases keeping in mind that prevention of diseases is always preferred to cure.
One of the unique features of this book is, it has contributors from all over the world.
New summary boxesat the end of each chapter and a newly streamlined table of contents make it easier to find and understand the information you’re looking for.
Hundreds of brand-new illustrationsclearly present key aspects of liver disease.
Efficiently review all the key diagnostic criteria and differential diagnoses for each lesion.
Liver Pathology will be essential reading for every pathologist who evaluates liver pathology specimens. In addition it will be a valuable resource for pathology residents and fellows.
All Consultant Pathology Titles Provide: Actual consultation cases and expert analysis Expert analysis provides a detailed discussion of the reasoning behind the diagnosis of each case Comprehensive coverage of challenging diagnoses The cases are richly illustrated with high-quality photomicrographs
Written by experts in the field, Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease: Bench to Bedside is a valuable resource for gastroenterologists, pathologists, and hepatologists who treat patients with alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.
AIH in Japanese patients creates a unique disease population, as its clinical features are different from those of Western patients resulting from the different genetic background of the two patient populations. Also, mouse models of neonatal thymectomy-PD-1 knockout mice, clinical analyses of acute hepatitis-like manifestations, and research findings on IgG4-related autoimmune hepatitis have been reported in Japan and are included in this book. A disease-susceptibility gene specific to Japanese PBC patients has also recently been discovered. Because of the relatively homogeneous population of Japan, analyses conducted with Japanese PBC patients have yielded findings that are highly relevant to the pathogenesis of the disease.
Furthermore, new pathological staging criteria, anti-gp210 antibodies and the basis they provide for improved accuracy of prognosis, treatment with bezafibrate, and the outcomes of living-donor liver transplantation are also presented here. This volume therefore serves as a useful resource not only for hepatologists, but also for researchers, clinical residents, and medical students both in Japan and in other countries.
Surgical Pathology of Liver Tumors will be of great utility to surgical pathologists and surgical pathologists in training as well as clinicians involved in the care of patients with liver tumors, particularly hepatologists and oncologists.
Fibrocystic Diseases of the Liver will be an invaluable resource for hepatologists, gastroenterologists, nephrologists, and hepatic surgeons who care for children and adults with liver disease, as well as basic scientists in molecular genetics, hepatobiliary pathophysiology, hepatology and nephrology.

Organized into 31 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of bilirubin metabolism and secretion from the point of view of transport within the liver cell. This text then discusses the relation of hematopoietic factors and coagulation mechanisms to hepatic function. Other chapters consider the etiology of viral hepatitis. This book discusses as well the appearance of genetic considerations in liver disease, as a reflection of progress in this discipline. The final chapter deals with the effects of closer relations with other nations and of migration from foreign lands and vice-versa, which have continued the interest in geographic pathology.
This book is a valuable resource for pathologists, physicians, biochemists, physiologists, clinicians, and clinical researchers.

The liver is a vital organ that is responsible for a wide range of functions, most of which are essential for survival. The multitude of functions the liver performs makes it vulnerable to a wide range of diseases. Mitochondrial dysfunction plays an important role in many liver diseases including drug-induced liver injury, alcoholic liver disease, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Mitochondria in Liver Disease gathers the most current research regarding the role of mitochondria in the liver and various diseases to which it is susceptible.
The book is separated into two sections, the first of which highlights the latest developments in mitochondrial research. It includes cutting-edge topics such as the regulation of mitochondrial respiration using hydrogen sulfide and the regulation of mitochondrial fusion–fission via the endoplasmic reticulum. The second section reviews the most current research on the role of mitochondria in a wide range of liver diseases. It also addresses novel topics such as the importance of liver mitochondrial constituents as biomarkers of liver injury in plasma and as regulators of the immune system.
Mitochondria in Liver Diseaserepresents the current state of knowledge and research on mitochondrial roles in liver diseases. Written by a group of global experts, it provides an authoritative and comprehensive overview of the latest advances and methods that mark key starting points for future research.
The liver is the seat of our overall health and wellness and the health of nearly every organ is intimately connected with our liver. A healthy liver is essential to a fully functioning body, but our modern sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy eating habits can truly damage the liver--and damage our health overall.
A silent health crisis is impacting one-third of the American population---nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Because its symptoms often don't manifest until the liver is seriously compromised, many people are not aware that they are at risk. Did you know that if you have fatty liver disease, you are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease (heart attack and stroke), and potentially several devastating conditions such as liver cirrhosis and liver cancer? Did you know that fat is as dangerous as alcohol to the liver?
Award-winning dietitian Kristin Kirkpatrick and hepatologist Dr. Ibrahim Hanouneh have teamed up for a life-changing program that will help you achieve optimal health. Skinny Liver's four-week program shares the steps you can take to get your liver health back on track, with everything from exercise to healthy eating and other lifestyle changes--along with delicious liver-friendly recipes.
The chapters are divided into six sections as follows:Basic Science of Extracellular MatrixCells Responsible for Extracellular Matrix ProductionActivation Mechanism of Hepatic Cells and Signal TransductionBasic Science for Extracellular Matrix Metabolism including Enzymes and their InhibitorsMatrix Mettaloproteinases and Tissue Inhibitors for Matrix Mettaloproteinases New Strategies for the treatment of Liver CirrhosisDiscusses the possibility of gene therapy for liver cirrhosisIncludes information on new aspects of hepatic stellate cellsWritten by top experts in basic science and clinical hepatology
