The only book to combine epidemiological analysis of gastrointestinal diseases with an examination of the methodologies of clinical research, GI Epidemiology, 2nd Edition, unites global experts to identify why and how GI diseases occur, to whom, and what can be done to prevent them. With new editors, new contributors, and a new, more user-friendly approach to epidemiology, this edition presents vital information in an accessible framework.


With the exception of minor quibbles, this bookrepresents the best and most up up-to-date summary of GIepidemiology currently available. (Gastroenterology, 1 October 2014)
