Algorithms provide a logical, concise and cost-effective approach to medical reasoning and help avoid excessive unnecessary procedures and testing. ‘Practical Algorithms in Pediatric Gastroenterology’ is a simple, bedside pragmatic text which classifies common clinical symptoms and signs, laboratory abnormalities and issues of management in the expanding field of pediatric gastroenterology as presented in daily practice. Written by leading experts in the field of pediatric gastroenterology and surrounding fields, this book is aimed at an audience of general and family practitioners, pediatricians and trainees who are not exposed on a day-to-day basis to pediatric gastroenterology problems.

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology  Comments Off on Role of Transcription Factors in Gastrointestinal Malignancies
Jun 272018

This book illustrates the importance of transcription factors in gastrointestinal cancer progression and metastasis with regard to understanding the mechanism and target definition in drug discovery. Further, it describes the complex issues associated with cancer cell growth and metastasis. The respective chapters provide detailed information on the various types of transcription factors (NF-kB, HIF-1, STAT-3, E2F1, and Sp1) and gastric-associated cancers (esophagus, stomach, colorectal, liver and pancreatic cancers) in connection with specific functional studies like cell cycle, angiogenesis, migration, invasion and apoptosis. These transcription factors control the expression of several signaling pathways involved in tumor growth, making them ideal targets for gastrointestinal cancer therapy. In closing, the book provides comprehensive descriptions of the major challenges associated with gastrointestinal cancer therapy.
