Microbioma. Intestino e salute. Come prevenire, riconoscere e curare le disbiosi intestinali
editore: Edizioni LSWR
L'idea che la salute e la malattia dipendano in gran parte dalle condizioni dell'intestino non è nuova. L'intestino è l'organo responsabile del primo contatto con le sostanze nutritive che ingeriamo ogni giorno, quindi non stupisce che un suo cattivo funzionamento possa avere un impatto negativo sul nostro benessere. Nuovissima è invece la scoperta che la salute non dipende solo dalle condizioni delle cellule umane, ma anche dallo stato in cui versa l'enorme popolazione di batteri che vivono nel nostro corpo e in particolare proprio nell'intestino. Oggi sappiamo che questi microscopici coinquilini che dividono con noi la loro sorte sono responsabili di una quantità di funzioni fondamentali per il raggiungimento e il mantenimento di un adeguato stato di benessere. Purtroppo lo stile di vita occidentale predispone allo sviluppo di disbiosi, ovvero all'impoverimento progressivo della flora batterica intestinale, e si ritiene che questa condizione sia collegata a un aumento di incidenza delle cosiddette "malattie del progresso". Ma si sa anche in che modo le disbiosi possano essere prevenute, diagnosticate e corrette. Questo libro si propone di svelare ai lettori i segreti del proprio intestino per permettere loro di ottimizzare il metabolismo, la performance fisiologica e il sistema immunitario, allo scopo di prevenire le principali malattie del secolo e vivere meglio, più sani e, possibilmente, più a lungo.

In recent years, there has been huge interest in developing new methods that offer improved accuracy for the detection of small bowel pathology, and in particular for the assessment of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Cross-sectional imaging, such as CT and MR, has advantages over traditional barium fluoroscopic techniques in terms of direct visualization of the bowel wall and improved visualization of extraluminal findings and complications. This means a complete change in the diagnostic approach to the patient with IBD: from analysis of the bowel surface to direct evaluation of parietal alterations and assessment of peri and extraintestinal involvement. The ideal imaging test is reproducible, well tolerated by patients and, above all, free of ionizing radiation. MR enterography, currently performed only in a few reference centers, meets these criteria and offers accurate diagnosis, particularly in respect of the wide spectrum of intra and extraintestinal complications of IBD. This book provides a thorough overview of the indications, techniques, diagnostic advantages and limitations of MR enterography. Particular attention is paid to patient preparation in relation to the particular study type and to the potential advantages of the most up-to-date MR studies in specific cases, e.g., allergy or renal failure. A separate chapter is devoted to MR of perianal region for the detection and staging of perianal fistula, a common complication in patients with Crohn's disease. Numerous high-quality illustrations are included and help to ensure that the book will be a valuable source of information for every radiologist involved in abdominal MR imaging.

Handbook of Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Richard S. Bloomfield, Stephen J. Bickston
editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins
Geared to a wide readership of practicing clinicians and trainees in primary care medicine and gastroenterology, this handbook offers practical information on Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Coverage begins with the patient's first visit and proceeds through the diagnostic workup: endoscopy, radiologic testing, and instruments for rating and classifying inflammatory bowel disease. Discussions of therapy include conventional therapies, immunomodulators, biologic therapies, surgical approaches, and intestinal stomas. Chapters discuss extraintestinal manifestations of inflammatory bowel disease, inflammatory bowel disease and the liver, infections, and pouchitis. Additional chapters focus on nursing considerations, nutrition, women's health issues, and inflammatory bowel disease and the workplace.
Disbiosi e immunità. Prevenire e curare le alterazioni dell'equilibrio intestinale
Rossella Iantorno, Luciano Lozioe altri
editore: Tecniche Nuove
L'obbiettivo di questo volume è quello di evidenziare come sia importante il ripristino di un buon funzionamento intestinale e di tutte le complesse funzioni che esso svolge. Nei capitoli si descrive dunque l'ecosistema intestinale e il sistema immunitario, il ruolo dei probiotici, il processo digestivo, il MALT (sistema immunitario delle mucose) e il CALT (sistema immunitario dell'intestino), le patologie autoimmuni e le intolleranze. Gli argomenti sono trattati con chiarezza facendo riferimento, qualora necessario, agli studi scientifici più recenti.

The Scientification of Gastroenterology During the 20th Century * Science contributes to medicine in three ways: It provides a body of relatively secure knowl- edge. Some of that knowledge has been applied to develop technologies which have had a major impact upon the practice and effectiveness of medicine. Last, science offers to medicine a way of thinking. - 1. McCormick [(1993) The Contribution of Science to Medicine. Perspect. Bioi. Med. 16,315.] Awareness of the digestive system began with the dawn of civilization, when man, observing the feeding habits of animals in the surrounding environment, experimented with foods, edible and inedible. Identity came with discoveries of the digestive organs during the 16th and 17th centuries. Function was revealed by physiologic studies of digestion, absorp- tion and secretion, metabolism, and motility during the 18th and 19th centuries. Diagnostic access improved with the technological advances of the 20th century. Understanding of gas- trointestinal (GI) disease followed the growth of the basic sciences and gastroenterology's involvement in scientific research during the latter half of the 20th century. Early in the 20th century, gastroenterology was yet an undefined activity without clinical or scientific guidelines. Diagnostic approach to the digestive tract was minimal. Valid con- cepts of disease were lacking. Visceroptosis, sitophobia, and "colonic autointoxication" were common "diagnoses." Therapeutic resources were scarce.
