The book on Membrane-bound
Atp-dependent Energy Systems and the Gastrointestinal Mucosal Damage and
Protection deals with various aspects of peptic ulcer disease, like clinical
pharmacology, nutrition, molecular biochemical pharmacology as well as clinical
aspects, and especially with the evaluation of certain biochemical mechanisms in
human gastric mucosa and in animal gastric tissues obtained from different ulcer
models. Topics covered includes: General Medical Backgrounds, Clinical
Pharmacology of Drugs Used in the Treatment of Patients with Peptic Ulcer,
Theoretical Backgrounds of the Necessarity for the Changes of Paradigm in Our
Ulcer Research, Membrane-Bound Atp-Dependent Energy System, Biochemical
Examination of the Human Gastrointestinal Tract, Direct Action of Helicobacter
pylori on the Freshly Isolated Rat Gastric Mucosa Cells.
This note is a
set of concise, practical guidelines and checklists for the management of common
problems in gastroenterology and hepatology. The guidelines are not rigid and do
