The Liver in Systemic Diseases PDF
10.21 MB PDF
The liver plays a central role in maintaining life and functions in association with various organs. The liver is anatomically formed from a common development source that forms the biliary tract, gallbladder, and pancreas, and there is an inflow of many materials through the portal vein from the intestinal tract and spleen. Also, the liver is affected by circulatory dynamics from the heart and lungs through the hepatic vein. Based on results of studies on autoimmunity, the endocrine system, nutrients, metal metabolism, and intestinal bacterial flora, attention has been given to the functional correlations of the liver with the spleen, visceral fat, intestinal tract, and central nervous system. Associations with dysbiosis and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and with hepatocellular carcinoma are hot topics. Diseases of the liver itself have effects on other organs, and it is known that hepatic lesions are often complicated with diabetes, endocrine diseases, and rheumatic diseases. Therefore, it is important to determine the associations of the liver with systemic organs and with clinical conditions of diseases.
For The Liver in Systemic Diseases, I invited leading Japanese scientists in this field to write about associations of organs with the liver from basic and clinical points of view. I hope that this book will enhance the specialties of clinicians and provide an opportunity to consider clinical conditions of diseases from a wider standpoint.
I also hope that the book will be helpful in facilitating clinical and research activities on liver diseases. It would be an honor if this book earned a place in your library and perhaps on your reading list. Finally, I would like to thank all of the authors for their contributions as well as Springer for their efforts in publishing this book.
