The individual chapters in this book combine to form components of a detailed story of the local and systemic pathophysiology of intestinal inflammation, with a series of management strategies. The authors present research advances and current concepts of etiopathogenesis in the context of what is already known of the clinicopathologic features of these disorders. This book blends recent advances in the basic and clinical sciences as they relate to inflammatory bowel disease. This book is designed to illustrate the effectiveness of a team approach of basic scientists and clinician investigators in this field. It will give the reader a glimpse of where the field is moving and an idea of likely research directions in the future.
