This book saves the reader time-consuming reference to different sources and provides a synoptic view of the essential aspects of prostaglandins and leukotrienes in one volume. These endogenous prostaglandins and leukotrienes play an essential role as cytoprotective agents and inflammation mediators in the pathogenesis of some frequent gastroenterologic diseases, such as gastroduodenal peptic ulceration, lesions due to intake of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, secretory diarrheal states, and chronic inflammatory bowel disease. In these cases, knowledge of pathogenesis leads to appropriate therapy. Experts thus discuss matters of topical clinical interest together with the necessary physiological, biochemical and pharmacological background.
