Ethanol and the Liver Mechanisms and Management



Ethanol and the Liver Mechanisms and Management by David Sherman, Ronald Ross Watson

Distilling the available knowledge on ethanol-induced liver damage and directly complementing the available bio-medical literature, Ethanol and the Liver covers pathogenic and clinical aspects of alcoholic liver disease.

Coverage includes: * Histopathology-fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis, and cirrhosis * Ethanol metabolism and its consequences * Mechanisms in the pathogenesis of ALD, including genetics, immunology, and insulin-like growth factors * Extrahepatic effects of ALD and the role of alcohol in potentiating liver damage due to other etiologies * Interaction of alcohol with viral hepatitis * Epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment * Management strategies, including transplantation The vast amount of knowledge and expertise gathered in this book make it an unparalleled resource.
