It is our pleasure to present the 4th Edition of Hepatology - A Clinical Textbook, which maintains the book as an up-to-date reference for all relevant aspects of clinical hepatology. This would not have been possible without the continuous contributions of all the authors who have dutifully and elegantly revised and updated their chapters. Again, the book is available in print, but probably more important as a free download at www.hepatologytextbook.com. Feedback from our readers is always welcome. And as in editions past, if you translate it, please let us know!

Hepatology A Clinical Textbook 5th edition

Chủ biên: Stefan Mauss, Thomas Berg, Jürgen Rockstroh, Christoph Sarrazin, Heiner Wedemeyer

Nhà xuất bản: Flying Publisher

Năm xuất bản: 2014

Ngôn ngữ: English

Hepatology is a rapidly evolving medical field and will continue to be very exciting over the next few decades. The situation in viral hepatitis is similar to the HIV field 10-15 years ago when it started to become better understood and treatable. Today, hepatitis B viral replication can be suppressed by potent antiviral drugs but there are risks for the emergence of resistance. Strategies to enhance the eradication rates of HBV infection still need to be developed. On the other hand, hepatitis C virus infection can be eradicated by treatment with pegylated interferon plus ribavirin. However, particularly in those infected by HCV genotype 1 the sustained virologic response rates are still suboptimal. Many new antiviral drugs, especially protease and polymerase inhibitors, are currently in preclinical and clinical development, and the first data from larger clinical trials provide some optimism that the cure rates for patients with chronic hepatitis C will be enhanced with these new agents. In other areas of hepatology, e.g., for hereditary and metabol ic liver diseases, our knowledge is rapidly increasing and new therapeutic options are on the horizon.
Are books in rapidly evolving areas such as hepatology the right medium to gather and summarize the current knowledge? Are these books not likely to be outdated the very day they are published? This is indeed a challenge that can be convincingly overcome only by rapid internet-based publishing with regular updates. Another unmatched advantage of a web-based book is the free and unrestricted access everywhere. Viral hepatitis and other liver diseases are a global burden and timely information is important for physicians, scientists, patients and health care officials all around the world.
The editors of this web-based book – Thomas Berg, Stefan Mauss, Jürgen Rockstroh, Christoph Sarrazin and Heiner Wedemeyer – are young, bright, and already internationally renowned hepatologists who have created an excellent state-of-the-art textbook on clinical hepatology. The book is well-structured and written and provides indepth information without being lengthy and redundant. I am convinced that all five will remain very active in the field and will update this book regularly as the science progresses. The book should rapidly become an international standard.
