The new edition of The Best of Five MCQS for the European Specialty Examination in Gastroenterology and Hepatology is a question book designed to assist in preparations for the European Specialty Examination in Gastroenterology and Hepatology (ESEGH). The book has been fully updated to reflect
the new examination introduced in 2018 and the most recent guidelines.
Containing a foreword by Sir Ian Gilmore, former president of both the British Society for Gastroenterology and the Royal College of Physicians, the book adopts the same Best of Five question format used in the ESEGH and covers the breadth of the curriculum. It has been designed to exactly match the
relative proportion of questions on each topic area found in the examination.
Each of the 300 questions contained in the book is accompanied by an answer, a set of three succinct bullet points of key ‘take-home’ messages, and a short summary of the relevant background, evidence-base and up-to-date European guidelines. The book ends with a chapter of 50 questions, which again
matches the proportions of topic areas found in the ESEGH, and is designed to act as a mock-examination for use in the final stages of preparation.

The Complex Interplay Between Gut–Brain, Gut–Liver, and Liver–Brain Axes provides current and wide-ranging information in the field of gastrointestinal, liver, and brain interactions that can be used in resolving important clinical issues. This book is systematically split into three distinct sections. The first section introduces the pathophysiology of the gut–brain connection, including the causative effect of the interactions between the gut and brain in gastrointestinal and psychiatric/neurological disorders, and the role of serotonin and its pathways in gastrointestinal disorders. The second section examines the pathophysiology of the gut–liver connection along with the interactions between gut microbiota and liver in chronic liver diseases, with special focus on the role of serotonin and its pathways in hepatic fibrogenesis. Finally, the third section describes the pathophysiology of the liver–brain connection, including the role of gut microbiota in hepatic encephalopathy, as well as dietary and therapeutic interventions that target the gut microbiome.
