Pancreatic Disease: Towards the Year 2000 provides a clear picture of the current research activity in pancreatic disease and its related basic science. Experts currently contributing to advances in understanding and treatment have provided concise and clear reviews of their subject. Each contribution summarises the relevant literature and describes recent advances whilst highlighting those areas where current research will impinge on clinical practice in the next few years. The reader will find in this book all the latest material related to pancreatic disease, cancer, acute and chronic pancreatitis and a number of other topics including transplantation and the relationship between endocrine and exocrine disease and cystic fibrosis. The book will supplement existing texts and will be of value to practising specialists who deal with pancreatic disease as well as specialist trainees in surgery and medical gastroenterology.
