Preface

This book covers all aspects of gastrointestinal tract problems caused by alcohol misuse. Opening chapters discuss epidemiology and the metabolism of alcohol and the liver’s role in that process. Alcohol and acetaldehyde dehydrogenases, free radicals, and endocrine changes are discussed in detail. Recent advances in the pathophysiology of alcohol-induced disorders are summarized and many chapters detail techniques such as permeability and protein synthesis. Effects on specific organs, including the salivary glands, stomach, pancreas, and small intestine, are also discussed. All contributors and both editors are internationally recognized experts in their fields.
