As in past volumes in this series on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)--the collective term for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, this up-to-date review selects six topics of clinical interest not recently covered in the yearbook. Bernstein (gastroenterology, U. of Manitoba, Winnipeg) and international contributors discuss global IBD epidemiological trends, insights from animal models on etiology and therapy, recommendations on clinician-pathologist communication, surveillance for increased colon cancer risk, psychological factors, and fertility and pregnancy issues. The yearbook includes suggestions for future research directions and useful summary tables. U.S. distribution is by BookMasters. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
